Working with Ohio University staff & faculty

We do not work for any large financial or investment company. Instead, we work directly for our clients and then leverage multiple larger custodians to hold their actual accounts. At Ohio University, the most suitable custodian is TIAA CREF. We directly manage our clients' investment accounts through deep discount custodians and then build retirement plans that coordinate their OPERS, STRS, SS benefits, etc. when they're ready.

What rebel Financial can do for you

and how were different from the competitors

Independent and transparent:

  • Fee-only & a Fiduciary

    Fee-only means that we only accept compensation from our clients and do not accept compensation from 3rd parties and, as a fiduciary, we always represent our clients’ best interests 1st.

  • Transparent pricing

    We are open and transparent in our pricing. We even produce a quarterly statement of all your fees so you know how much you pay and can quantify our value to you.

    1) View all client service models.
    2) View all flat-fee planning models.

  • Reduced cost & committment

    Because we don’t take commissions or work for a large financial firm we can drive down costs and remove restrictive contract terms. We always work at your discretion, no strings attached.

Knowledgeable and specialized:

  • Experienced advisors that know your retirement

    We specialize in working with public employees that have OPERS, STRS, or SERS. Furthermore, we have many clients at OU and know your particular benefits/opportunities as well.

  • Professional excellence

    Our financial advisors are all Certified Financial Planners (CFP), who have at least a BA/BS, and we require that they complete at least 60 hours of continuing education per year.

  • Dedication and continuity

    Whether you’re just starting your career, contemplating retirement, or are already retired we we can help you with your retirement planning. Furthermore, we’ve been serving staff & faculty for over 12yrs and plan to continue for decades to come.
