Life and Career
Rich Groff II began his career in the financial industry while still in college, though his interest in money matters goes back even further. Since the tender age of eight, Rich has been investing and learned early that, “It’s not necessarily what you know but what you don’t know that can cost you even more.” He carries this wisdom with him to this day and has a steadfast mission to help each of his clients uncover the potentially harmful unknowns about their unique financial situation.
In 1991, Rich earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Finance from Central Michigan University, and in 1994, he studied to become a Certified Financial Planner® at the College for Financial Planning in Colorado. Rich was also one of the founding stockholders of The Planners Network, Inc., an organization seeking to enhance financial advisors’ expertise through on-going networking with other investment professionals across the country.
He has been married to his wife Jackie for over 25 years and is the father of twins, Jackson and Kelsey. In his spare time, Rich enjoys boating, waterskiing, fishing, hunting with his bow, and staying fit, as well as keeping up with the Arizona Cardinals, Central Michigan Chippewas football teams, and the University of Montana Grizzlies sports teams where his children are attending.
