WHY CHOOSE BTG?
At BTG we choose to work with a smaller select group of clients so that we can provide as much value to each relationship as possible. We partner together as a team so that every client relationship has two CFP®s working with them. We are true fiduciaries that don't sell products and only get paid on our advice. We are retirement specialists and we know our stuff.
