LOUISVILLE, Ky. (June 19, 2018) — ARGI, a Louisville-based personal and business financial advisory firm, has announced that Ron Beaton, of Ron Beaton’s Money Matters, has joined the company, extending its reach to Paducah and the western Kentucky market.
In addition to the headquarters in Louisville, other locations include Bowling Green, Ky.; Elizabethtown, Ky.; Cincinnati, Ohio; Indianapolis, Ind.; Grand Rapids, Mich.; Norwalk, Conn.; and most recently Lexington, Ky.
As a native of Paducah, Beaton graduated from Lone Oak High School, Murray State University, and the College for Financial Planning. Throughout his first career, Beaton spent over 25 years as a local news anchor at WPSD-TV, the NBC affiliate in Paducah. While at the news station, he earned the certified financial planner designation, and began his own practice, Ron Beaton’s Money Matters, in 1997. He grew the firm in his after-work hours until 2004, when he left the station to run the company full-time.
With over 20 years of personal financial planning experience, Beaton will serve as an additional resource for high net worth individuals seeking personal comprehensive financial planning.
“After spending my second career growing and operating Ron Beaton’s Money Matters, I don’t make this move lightly,” says Beaton. “I’ve been impressed with ARGI’s culture, people, growth, and services for quite some time now. Just like Ron Beaton’s Money Matters, ARGI is an independent, fiduciary firm, so I believe this will be a great fit. ARGI’s team focuses solely on what their clients need, which I believe is the right way to treat people. I am excited about the strength and comprehensive financial services we can supply to families and businesses in our part of the country.”
“Ron is a respected resource for personal financial advisory services in the western Kentucky region,” says Joe Reeves, CFP, and CEO of ARGI. “We are excited to have him join the ARGI team and expand our reach into this new market for our company. Our growth mindset has driven us to continually seek opportunities that can help broaden our impact across the region, and we look forward to growing our presence in the greater Paducah area.”
