A modern wealth planning relationship means personalized attention as your financial picture becomes more complex. As new opportunities arise, we're able to help evaluate them and guide you to help maximize your financial potential.

We’re trusted by millions of investors, and each one has unique goals. Working with us means having the support of your planner and a team of in-house experts who will help understand your individual needs to guide you today and into the future.

Retirement isn't about a number; it's about how you want to live. Accessing the services that are in support of your vision is the foundation of the relationship with your planner.

You may not be working, but you’re still earning. Even if the plan you envisioned is in place, and you’ve built your wealth, you still need to take steps to help grow, protect and preserve it.

From charitable giving to planning your estate, help make sure that all you've worked for continues to make an impact for years to come.

Vision meets innovation

Edelman Financial Engines was founded with a core mission - to give everyone the opportunity to move their financial life forward. Our founders set the tone - Nobel Prize-winning economist Dr. William F. Sharpe gave individual investors access to sophisticated investment modeling tools that were previously available only to institutional investors, and Ric Edelman established his advisory firm with the belief that everyone should have a trusted financial advocate. Our planners carry that mission forward every day with every client.

Our Leadership Team

Bringing your financial vision to life - that's what drives our team of leaders. Our leadership team is composed of some of the brightest minds in the industry, with deep experience in financial services and fintech.


Awards are simply the result of our passion for helping our clients. As a fiduciary, we're dedicated to applying that passion with personal and objective financial planning and investment management services that put our clients and their best interests first, always.
