Dr. Stephen Benold

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 graduated from Rice University, where I double-majored in Economics and Biology.  During this time, I opened my first brokerage account and invested money for other students.

I am a CFP® and a Registered Investment Advisor.  Also, I am an active member of First United Methodist Church Georgetown, where I sing in the choir and have taught a Sunday School class since 1988.  I served as Medical Director of Williamson County EMS for 32 years, leading the continuing medical education course for the paramedics.  My community involvement continues with being a long-term member of the Rotary Club and serving on multiple community organizations, including the Georgetown School Board.  I keep my medical license active and see a few patients at a government facility each week.

My wife, Nancy, and I reside in Georgetown, TX, with our schnauzer, Lotti.  We have two adult children and five grandchildren.  I enjoy gardening, reading, and playing on my Bobcat at my family’s ranch outside the office.
