Blaine Thiederman is a Member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors

The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is a leading professional association of Fee-Only financial advisors - highly trained professionals who are committed to working in the best interests of those they serve.

NAPFA members live by three important values:

  • To be the beacon for independent, objective financial advice for individuals and families.
  • To be the champion of financial services delivered in the public interest.
  • To be the standard bearer for the emerging profession of financial planning.

Progress Wealth Management was started with a simple purpose: to help clients whom want a science and process applied to ensuring efficiency, accuracy and effectiveness in every area of their financial plan.

Our founder, Blaine Thiederman, has worked at a number of different wealth management firms in varying roles and he always felt like the plans and the effort put in by advisors was lacking in one way or another. What bothered him more was the fact that the advisors he worked alongside often knew this but didn’t really care.

This was the driving reason behind starting this firm up.

At Progress Wealth, we take pride in the following:

1. We’re non-commissioned meaning that we aren’t paid by anyone other than you so like a doctor, you can trust us to always have your best interests at heart.

2. We’re fiduciaries meaning that we’re legally bound to always have your best interests at heart.

3. We’re thorough. We don’t leave any rock unturned as we assist you in your progression towards your financial future.

4. We don’t use cookie cutter anything. We believe that every financial plan, circumstance and goal is unique and for that reason, it requires care.
