Greg Griffingreg
President, Griffin Advisory Services
Investment Advisor Representative*
Ed Slott Master Elite IRA Advisor
Registered Financial Consultant

25+ years of EXPERIENCE




Greg has always been a very astute student. He graduated High School a semester early and still finished his B.S. degree from Southern Indiana University in 1980 in only 3 years. In 1982, He received his MPA in Management from Indiana University. He entered into military service and was received his wings of gold as a Naval Aviator in 1984. He left the military after 11 years of service, during which he was awarded the Navy Achievement Medal for exemplary performance.

Greg began his career in the insurance industry in 1993 as an agent with the Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company. In his second year there, he was promoted to District Sales Manager and managed the business of up to 15 agents. Greg moved to the Equitable as an Agent / Registered Representative (series 6 / 63) in 1998. After several years as a captive agent, Greg left to become an Independent Agent and eventually formed Griffin Advisory Services with his wife April in 2009.

Today, as an Investment Advisor Representative (series 65) and Insurance Agent, he has focused all his skills and knowledge to working primarily with the Senior market. He understands the big picture of retirement planning — from income planning and investment management to long-term legacy planning. He is also one of the small group of advisors who have attained the status as a Master Elite IRA Specialist mentored by Ed Slott, the Wall Street Journals Qualified Money / IRA Expert.


The INTEGRITY to tell it like it is

Greg is an Independent Advisor, not an affiliated broker. As a fiduciary, he is required to make recommendations that he believes are strictly in the best interest of his clients. He works only for you. He will not simply sell you a product; instead, he will devise a competent solution that will help meet your financial and retirement goals.

In fact, you might have heard about Greg through a CPA, an estate planning attorney or one of his educational workshops.


The KNOWLEDGE to plan for your vision

Greg can help you create a comprehensive retirement plan, including review of your IAR accounts. These plans can incorporate tax reduction, market investments and / or insurance strategies. All of them are individually tailored. He works with you to build an income plan personalized around you and your needs, rather than trying to fit you into a pre-conceived plan.

Why not retire with personal care and guidance with an advisor you can trust? Why retire with anything less? Don’t settle for the status quo. 

Do you have an exit strategy?
