Ronald A. Gestiehr
Over the course of his nearly 20-year career in the finance industry, Ronald A. Gestiehr has seen firsthand what works and what doesn’t. As director of wealth management at Luttner Financial Group, he brings this valuable wisdom to every person he serves. He’s a 5-Star Wealth Manager and financial advisor and strategist who specializes in macro-planning for high-net-worth individuals and helping clients with exit and transition planning in the business space. Headquartered in Pittsburgh, the privately held firm works as more of a family CFO, helping people organize every financial decision. Their guiding motto, “bringing your entire picture together, one piece at a time” reflects this approach and their unwavering belief that no financial instrument should be placed without a comprehensive strategy. “Everything we do starts with a blueprint,” Ronald shares. “From there, we create a full-scale plan.”
With special emphasis in the areas of macro and holistic planning, as well as premium life insurance and risk management strategies, Luttner Financial Group also offers advanced tax planning strategies and investment management services. In the last three years alone, the company has grown substantially, a clear testament to the success of both their innovative approach and the trust from a growing number of individuals who rely on them. “Our process is unique in that we look at every aspect for our clients, from assets to liabilities, cash flows, and protections,” he states. “We then work together as a team, which allows for a thorough, comprehensive review.”
Prior to joining Luttner Financial Group, Ronald spent seven years with Wells Fargo before transitioning into the private sector. “Leaving corporate America and creating a business model where we don’t report to shareholders, but instead report to our clients has been our greatest accomplishment,” he shares. “But being able to make them aware of things they don’t know—good or bad—and working through everything to help achieve their objectives is really what I enjoy most.”
Ronald has also authored a book on financial truths and myths. He attended business school at Penn State, where he majored in finance and minored in economics, and holds a Certified Exit Planner designation.
