Raymond J. Shreder, CWM®, MFP®
Personal Retirement Advocate



I am an experienced and credentialled "no-sales" Personal Retirement Advocate dedicated to helping you make the correct financial decisions necessary to achieve, enhance, and protect your desired retirement lifestyle.

But unlike sales-based financial professionals, I do not receive commissions or ongoing fees for selling you financial products.

Instead, I'm compensated solely for helping you make informed and correct decisions with your retirement monies. I figuratively "sit on the same side of the table" as you and I'm not beholden to any financial services companies or professionals - I'm accountable only to you.

My unique no-sales compensation structure provides you with a trusted relationship that eliminates the inherent conflict-of-interest issues found with financial professionals who are paid commissions or fees for selling the products or services that they recommend. Sales-based financial professionals, including fiduciaries like Bernie Madoff, may be enticed to recommend and sell products or services with the highest commissions or fees, which may be hidden or not fully disclosed, or material information may knowingly or unknowingly be omitted that could result in unacceptable performance or catastrophic, and oftentimes irreversible consequences.

My Personal Retirement Advocacy includes:

• Financial Decision Guidance
You will obtain expert help in making your critical retirement decisions correctly

• Educational Product Reviews, Evaluations & Second Opinions
You will know if your current or planned financial products are appropriate

• Financial Professional Evaluations
You will know if your current or potential financial professional is qualified 

• Conference Calls with Existing Financial Professionals
You'll have a better understanding of any recommendations discussed during phone calls with your current or potential financial professionals 

Subject areas include:

Annuities • Insurance • Investments • Medicare • Retirement Accounts • Social Security • Taxes

With my education-based decision support, personalized guidance, and holistic oversight, you will enjoy peace of mind knowing that you are not alone in making the critical financial decisions that will ultimately determine your retirement lifestyle.

Personal Retirement Advocacy consultations are available in person wherever possible or by phone or video call.

Pricing is results-driven and based on your individual needs.
