Wealth Management Services For Retirees & Surviving Spouses

John Lynch founded Lynch Financial Group in 1989 to provide a high level of comprehensive wealth management services to clients. He chose to operate using a fee-only model — which was unique at that time — realizing the importance of providing unbiased advice to clients and always acting in their best interest. John’s son, Doug, joined the firm at its inception, fresh out of college.

We ultimately decide to focus on a specific niche: helping retirees and surviving spouses develop an appropriate game plan, minimize taxes, and make financial decisions that are best for their specific situation. Using the LFG Retirement Wealth Management System, we have helped many clients over the years, emphasizing the value of experience, credentials, and integrity.
