Dr. Stephen Benold, CFP®

In 2005, I founded Benold Financial Planning to provide clients with objective, goal-based investment advice.  However, I was not always a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™.  Before becoming a CFP®, I followed in the footsteps of my father and became a family physician.  After 30 years as a family physician, I decided to pursue my other passion, financial planning.

I come from a family lineage of physicians.  Both of my grandfathers, uncle, and father are physicians.  However, I realized my true passion and became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and a Registered Investment Advisor.
