Fee-Only financial planner located in New Hope, PA, serving clients locally and across the country
Kenny Bauer is a New Hope, PA fee-only financial planner. Rockwood Wealth Management provides comprehensive and objective financial planning and investment management to help prosperous individuals, families, and institutions organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Kenny Bauer is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
Kenny Bauer was born and raised in San Francisco and attended the University of California, Berkeley taking coursework in engineering to follow in the footsteps of his brother and one of his sisters. He thankfully switched to Business Economics and received his BA from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
After college Kenny settled down in beautiful Mill Valley, CA, and was the Chief of Administrative Services for the Marin County District Attorney’s office. During a vacation to the east coast, Kenny and his wife decided to relocate their family in 1997 to even more beautiful Gardenville in Bucks County, PA.
Kenny has served his clients as a financial planner ever since and greatly enjoys personal side of our profession. He particularly appreciates working with many of the same client families for over 20 years, often alongside multiple family generations. He is known around the office for his expertise planning for corporate executives, clients in personal or employment transition, and the complexities of international planning.
Out of the office, he enjoys the never-ending cathartic pleasures of maintaining his family’s historic home and barn – as well as tending to the veritable menagerie of animals that call it home. Don’t feel to sorry for him though, as he does occasionally receive help from his wife, two sons (both engineers) and his nursing student daughter.
Kenny is a long-time Scouting volunteer and assists with the Travis Manion Foundation, a veteran support charity. He enjoys anything to do with lacrosse as a former player, coach, parent, official and lifelong fan.
