As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to help you achieve your life goals. - Richard Wilkinson, CFP®
Fee-Only Financial Planner serving clients nation-wide, with offices in Dallas, Fort Worth, Orange County and San Diego.
Richard Wilkinson is a Bedford, TX fee-only financial planner. WorthPointe provides comprehensive and objective financial planning to help clients organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Richard Wilkinson is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
Rick Wilkinson, CFP® has been in the financial services industry since 1980, when he started his career as an agent for a major property and casualty insurance carrier. Over the next 28 years, his agency grew to become one of the largest in Texas. He noticed that many of his clients needed more comprehensive financial advice, so in 1992 he earned his Certified Financial Planner designation. To avoid the conflicts of interest inherent in commission-based compensation, Rick sold his agency in 2008 and he has worked as a fee-only financial advisor since 2011.
Rick and his wife, Lynnette, have been married since 1976. They are the proud parents of a son and daughter, Ryan and Natalie. Rick became an avid golfer when his wife worked for legendary golfer Ben Hogan—but there are no similarities between the two men’s swings. He also enjoys college football and spending time with family and friends. He and his wife attend Christ Chapel in Fort Worth and are supporters of Restore Hope Ministries.
