When you begin investing, the amount of information on a typical brokerage statement can be overwhelming as can your online account. For this reason, Wentz Financial Group offers statement and online access classes so that clients can understand their monthly brokerage statement. We provide everyone in the class a copy of their most recent brokerage statement, and then go page by page, giving a complete analysis of the statement as a whole.

An important part of financial planning is preparing for your family when you are no longer here. Wentz Financial Group partners with local attorneys to highlight the basics of estate planning to help you make an informed decision on what happens to your assets after you pass. This non-sales discussion will help you and your family prepare for the future.

Our Investments 101 basics class is the keystone of our educational series. This class is usually done in small class sizes to allow for plenty of questions to be answered in a low pressure atmosphere. Our advisors provide a basic understanding of how the markets and the economy work. This class is great for people who are looking to gain a base understanding before they begin investing.

From time to time, Wentz Financial Group has the opportunity to host nationally recognized financial analysts, local celebrities and non-financial-related speakers in our state-of-the-art auditorium.
