We are a nationwide cooperative of financial professionals with a passion for educating pre-retirees and those in retirement.
The Retirement Wealth Academy was established by seasoned veterans in the industry and exclusively welcomes like-minded educators who share our values: to teach a disciplined approach to financial planning, to provide an objective outlook on retirement investing, and to empower students with a comprehensive understanding of complex financial topics.Meet our founders
Jason began his career on Wall Street as one of the youngest advisors at Morgan Stanley. After seeing first-hand how broken the financial industry had become, he founded his own financial advisory firm in 2005.
He pioneered the use of algorithms based on proven academic formulas to build investment portfolios. This approach offered previously exclusive portfolio strategies to a broader range of investors.
These proved so popular that Jason founded his own investment firm, FormulaFolios. Ranked among the 500 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S.A. by Inc Magazine for each of the past three years, FormulaFolios now oversees the management of over $3.2 billion in assets.
At the end of the day, what most people want is not just to accumulate as much money as possible—but to enjoy a great life, and make as big an impact in the lives of people and causes that are important to them with the money they do have.”
—Jason Wenk, Founder
