Michael Foguth

President + Founder

Michael Foguth guides his clients through retirement planning process with concepts designed to withstand whatever the road ahead may hold. Family is what drives Michael to continue his passion in the retirement planning arena. Having seen firsthand what improper preparation and market volatility can do to one’s retirement, he makes it a point to educate others on what they can do to ensure history does not repeat itself.

Raised in Mid-Michigan by his parents Michael and Marie, Michael Foguth was taught that faith and family are the foundation to a successful journey through life. Family is of the utmost importance to him; his father being one of 13 and his mother one of 6, they emphasized the importance of strong family bonds. Michael and his wife Brooke support this belief with the five children they have together.

Michael’s passion led him to specialize in working with retirees and those nearing retirement who desire to protect their hard earned money and ensure that it is there when they need it. Educating today’s retirees plays a key role in this process. Michael and his team at Foguth Financial Group pride themselves on the long lasting relationships they have developed with their clients and their families. Michael’s clientele turn to him when they are faced with tough decisions that come up during their pre- and post-retirement journeys.
