Our team looks beyond traditional wealth management to help you identify and measure where you are and where you want to be using key indicators that are vital to your financial health and comfort. We then customize your financial plan specifically for you. Our unique process encourages the development of relationships that allow us and your other trusted advisors to all work together on your behalf.
The collective wisdom of our relationships continues to define the Ruggie Wealth difference, and we believe this knowledge has led to our ranking among the nation’s leading wealth management firms by the likes of Barron’s, Forbes/Shook Research and the Financial Times, as well as Tom’s selection to the Forbes Finance Council.
As wealth managers, our purpose is to help clients achieve the financial peace-of-mind they deserve. We want to assist those who don’t have the time, desire or specialized expertise to oversee the complex process of managing wealth by providing the processes, team and proactive advice necessary to do so. We would like to be at our clients’ side every time they have an important financial decision to make, and to help them achieve the financial freedom necessary to focus their time on other things and to enjoy life.
Numbers help provide valuable context about our firm and how we’ve evolved to accommodate the needs of our expanding client base. Ruggie Wealth and its principals advise on nearly $1 Billion in assets. We have three offices conducting business under the Ruggie Wealth name, our partnering office KCG Investment Advisory Services in Savannah, relationships with some clients that have spanned more than two decades, and an enviable client retention rate. Even so, we don’t gauge our success solely on these numbers — we evaluate our effectiveness both quantitatively and qualitatively, and encourage those who work with us to do the same.
