About Us

With millions of baby boomers leaving the workforce each year, it’s no surprise that you’re hearing more and more investment advisors promising that they can help you plan for retirement. Who can blame them? Following the market makes good business sense. And yet, almost without exception, retirement planning is just of several services these advisors offer.

At Kowal Investment Group, we’re different.

Nearly three decades ago, we decided to focus exclusively on helping our clients plan and build the retirement they’d been working for – and dreaming of – their whole lives. We didn’t do it to fill a “niche”. We did it because something as important as your quality of life after work deserves a focused and dedicated team.

It’s a decision we’ve never once regretted. For along the way, something truly gratifying happened. Our family business got a little bigger. Not just because our clients came to see us as an honorable, responsive, and forward-thinking partner. But because the families we’ve helped have become a part of ours. We’d like to think we’ve become a part theirs, as well. Our clients come first-it’s always been that way. That’s the Kowal way.
