We note at the outset that the word “Partners” was intentionally incorporated into the firm name “Glenwood Financial Partners” because the founders of the firm believe, and clients have echoed, that it best describes the nature of their relationships with clients.

Rick and Michael’s greatest motivation is their desire to help people, and that desire relates to both managing the vast complexities of the financial world and sharing the joys and navigating the stresses of everyday life. Accordingly, they routinely refer to their work as financial “life” management, and their podcasts repeat the mantra: “It’s Not Just About Money.”

Since teaming up in 2003, Rick and Michael have served as fiduciaries in meeting each client’s unique circumstances and locations, ranging from the professional offices of law firms and corporations to the hot and dusty summer fields of hard-working farmers. The mission is to meet people where they are in life for the purpose of providing wealth management services that achieve the highest levels of customized investment management and real-life solutions.

Join our podcasts for first-hand introductions to our firm, our people, our service, and our knowledge, experience, and values. We also cover a variety of topics, from the more timely, such as “Bitcoin” and “Disruptive Innovation,” to the basics, such as “fiduciary advisors” and “customized solutions.”

We hope you’ll be empowered with knowledge and purpose.
