Renaissance Financial

Renaissance Financial logoOver 20 years ago, a diverse group of individuals came together with a shared vision of creating a successful and dynamic financial firm. Their mission: to use creative business and personal planning to help clients achieve financial freedom…one relationship at a time. And so Renaissance Financial was born. Since then, Renaissance has flourished, expanding from 14 founding members into a team of well over 130 driven, talented and experienced professionals.

On the first day that Renaissance opened its doors you would have seen many of the same faces you see in our offices today. And it is from that deep-rooted environment of commitment and family that we cultivate a personal approach built on developing solid, trusting and long-lasting relationships. What we do is not just a job – It is a passion. Renaissance has assembled experts in all areas of the financial services field, creating a unique culture of entrepreneurial financial advisors who believe that many minds working together are greater than one.

From our humble beginnings, Renaissance has experienced rapid growth, developing a solid presence in the Midwest and Southwest regions in St. Louis, Omaha, Kansas City and Phoenix. We have joined with substantial and well-established financial institutions, enabling us to offer our partners’ sophisticated and robust resources while embracing the enterprising spirit of a boutique financial firm. As we continue to move forward, navigating a new path, we invite you to grow along with us and let us help guide you on a journey unlike no other.
