Chad S. Baker, CFP®, ChFC®

Financial Adviser

He continued his education by earning his CFP® (Certified Financial Planner) and ChFC® (Chartered Financial Consultant) designations. He also holds the FINRA series 6, 63, 65 and 7 licenses.

Chad’s financial planning philosophy is that of building financial plans that stand the test of time through prudent strategies, sound recommendations, proper asset allocation and diversification. He believes that too often advisors confuse planning with just selling their clients products. A properly written financial plan adds clarity and purpose to the financial aspects of your life. Areas of focus need to include investing properly, asset protection, retirement income planning and estate planning.

Chad is deeply committed to his community having served on several community organizations and boards including the Upper Sandusky Chamber of Commerce, The Fairhaven Capital Campaign Committee, Rotary and Wyandot County Pheasants Forever. He also enjoys mentoring young advisors and has spoken numerous times to business classes at the Ohio Northern University on the topic of financial planning.
