Fee-Only financial planner located in New Braunfels, TX, serving clients locally and across the country

Benjamin Hooper is a New Braunfels, TX fee-only financial planner. Comal Wealth Management provides financial planning, retirement planning, and investment management  services to help retirees save time, maximize income, and enjoy retirement. 

Benjamin Hooper is the Founder and Wealth Manager at Comal Wealth Management.

I launched Comal Wealth Management to help clients save time, reduce taxes, maximize income and enjoy retirement. We are based in New Braunfels, TX but the practice is 100% virtual. This allows us to serve clients all across the country.

We specialize in retirement income & investment strategies for individuals and couples over age 50.

Prior to Comal Wealth Management, I served as a Financial Advisor / Wealth Manager for a fortune 100 company for 11 years. During that time, I had the privilege of serving military veterans and their families. That experience allowed me to learn in great detail about military & federal retirement benefits.

Previously, I earned my undergraduate degree in Personal Financial Planning from Texas Tech University, which is widely considered the top program in the country. In addition, I earned my MBA from Colorado State University.

I married my best friend, Brooke, in 2012. She's a Registered Nurse and when we're not working, you can usually find us traveling to an ocean adventure or listening to live music on the weekends.
