21-year retirement income industry veteran joins team to lead southeast development.
GenWealth Financial Advisors, an Arkansas registered investment advisory firm, has announced an expansion of its operation into the southeast United States. The firm says that expansion will begin near Nashville, Tennessee and will be headed by Christian von Allmen, a 21-year veteran of the retirement income planning industry.
“This month, we will open an office at 5115 Maryland Way, Ste. 212 Brentwood, Tennessee, and we are excited to welcome Christian to the team to lead our growth there,” said GenWealth co-owner John Shrewsbury. von Allmen’s experience in investment product development, management, and leadership will expand GenWealth’s current depth of financial planning expertise.
Previously, von Allmen was instrumental in several key areas of growth for Jackson National Life, a leading retirement income-product provider. GenWealth co-owner Janet Walker says, “The combination of von Allmen’s experience and GenWealth’s trademarked Ready to Retire Process will further enhance our clients’ experience as they seek to enjoy life after work.”
The expansion into the southeast is designed to follow demographic trends of growth in that region. “The country is certainly migrating to the south and east,” Shrewsbury said, “and according to real estate experts, there are 80 families a day relocating to the Nashville area. Many of those families need personalized financial advice, and that’s what GenWealth has been doing for 16 years.”
Walker added, “Christian will bring a level of expertise that will enhance our process which has already proven to be successful through the thousands of families we serve as clients. His skill set as a leader will enable us to take the GenWealth experience into growing areas like greater Nashville and beyond.”
von Allmen commented that “GenWealth has the right formula and a tremendous team that is dedicated to helping our clients. I believe our brand of planning and insight is being sought after by people who need serious advice as they transition from work to retirement.”
The Brentwood expansion will represent the seventh location of GenWealth Financial Advisors, which currently has locations in Arkansas, including Little Rock, Bryant, Conway, Hot Springs, and El Dorado, along with Bossier City, Louisiana. The firm currently serves over 3,600 clients and looks forward to serving the new market with their trademarked Ready to Retire Process.
