Building a Goal-Oriented Financial Plan
Hi there! I’m Gretchen, a NY-based financial consultant who specializes in helping women of all ages work toward their financial goals. I founded Gretchen Meyer Financial because I understand that many women feel intimidated or uneducated about their financial matters, and consequently, they often don’t seek the professional help they need to pursue the lifestyle they want. In addition, they often think they don’t have enough money saved to benefit from a financial planner or they falsely believe it costs too much to hire someone like me or a member of my team.
Our practice is dedicated to helping these women understand their options and learn about financial planning in a down-to-earth, accessible way so that they feel empowered and in control of their family’s well-being. Whether they are preparing for retirement, starting a college savings fund, or becoming financially independent, our advice focuses on building our clients’ confidence around financial matters and on working toward their unique financial goals, one step at a time.
Since its inception, Gretchen Meyer Financial has experienced tremendous success and growth. GMF is a boutique agency dedicated to serving its clients, servicing $80 million+ in brokerage and advisory assets through LPL Financial.
My team and I understand how challenging – and sometimes emotional – the topic of personal finance can be for many people. We focus on developing warm and trusting relationships with our clients while guiding them through the wealth management and investment process.
Our brand promise is simple: We'll keep you on track towards your goals of financial independence, and we'll keep it fun.
The core values at Gretchen Meyer Financial aren't just lip-service. We live and breathe these core values -- not just with our clients, but inwards with our team.
We lean in and listen.
We collaborate and celebrate.
We set the bar high - really high.
We pause to learn.
If you’re ready to get started, request a free discovery session with a member of our team so we can begin a dialogue. We look forward to helping you pursue your goals and to creating the life you’ve always wanted.
