Comal Wealth Management
Founder & Wealth Manager
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.
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.
