About our Firm

John Lynch founded Lynch Financial Group in 1989 to provide a high level of comprehensive wealth management services to clients. He chose to operate using a fee-only model — which was unique at that time — realizing the importance of providing unbiased advice to clients and always acting in their best interest. John’s son, Doug, joined the firm at its inception, fresh out of college.

We ultimately decide to focus on a specific niche: helping retirees and surviving spouses develop an appropriate game plan, minimize taxes, and make financial decisions that are best for their specific situation. Using the LFG Retirement Wealth Management System, we have helped many clients over the years, emphasizing the value of experience, credentials, and integrity.

There are many reasons why retirees and surviving spouses continue to choose to work with us to help achieve their financial goals and have us serve as their wealth manager, including these:

✅ Depth of expertise — In addition to having more than 30 years of experience, our advisors are CFP®s, CFAs, and CPAs. The latter designation, which is not very common among wealth managers, means we can provide the added value of expert tax advice.

✅ Niche focus — Instead of trying to be all things to all people, we concentrate on working with retirees and surviving spouses, and have honed our expertise to serve those demographics’ unique needs.

✅ Comprehensive approach — The LFG Retirement Wealth Management System is a tried and true financial planning method that encompasses a broad range of services and has benefited many clients over past three decades.

✅ Fiduciary standard — As fiduciaries, we always provide advice that is in the best interest of our clients. A fee-only firm since the beginning, we never accept commissions in exchange for recommending products.
