About Me

Hi, I’m Benjamin Hooper, CFP®, owner of Comal Wealth Management. I specialize in holistic financial planning and investment strategies for those nearing or in retirement. I founded Comal Wealth Management to help you save time, reduce taxes, invest smarter, maximize income, and enjoy retirement!

Prior to Comal Wealth Management, I spent 11 years working for USAA as a financial advisor and wealth manager. In 2013, I was one of the youngest advisors promoted to Wealth Manager in the company and was tasked with moving to El Paso, TX to lead our Wealth Management offering in the local community. After 3 years in El Paso, I joined the Austin, TX Wealth Management team to serve the Central Texas community.

Previously, I earned my undergraduate degree in Personal Financial Planning from Texas Tech University, which is widely considered the top program in the country. In addition, I earned my MBA from Colorado State University.

On a personal note, I'm a born-and-raised Texan and have called New Braunfels, TX home since 2018. My wife Brooke and I love animals. We like to joke that we were normal three cats ago. Wizard, Loki and Bella certainly bring us a lot of joy.

On the weekend you'll find us training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, watching the UFC with friends, and in the evening, we like to put on a Lord of the Rings movie and order a pizza from our favorite local Italian restaurant, Gennaro's.

Outside our normal weeks, we love to travel, preferably somewhere with beaches and palm trees. I enjoy trading travel stories with clients and hearing how our various adventures helped us gain perspective and joy in life.
