Jarrod Rutledge is a founding partner of Provident Wealth Management Group as well as a Certified Financial Planner™ Certificant. Jarrod started his career at a major financial services company in 2004 where he worked as a financial advisor and advisor coach. However, he had a vision of a financial planning practice that was independent and free of conflicts of interest, but he did not want to lose out on the “big company” feel and support of a major financial institution like he had grown accustomed to.
So, in 2010, he decided to co-found Provident Wealth Management Group and open a completely independent financial planning firm in partnership with LPL Financial and Independent Financial Partners. Because LPL Financial does not offer any investment products of its own, Jarrod was able to fulfill his desire to keep the big company feel and support of a major financial services company without having to jeopardize the independent and objective nature of his advice and recommendations.
Now, with over a decade of experience helping individuals and small business owners plan for their financial goals, Jarrod feels confident in his ability to be able to provide top notch financial advice while still being backed by the largest independent broker dealer in the US*. He thoroughly enjoys the meaningful relationships that he has developed with his clients over the years and educating them on their important financial decisions.
Jarrod received a Bachelor of Science in Business Economics from the University of South Florida. After many years of working towards attaining the designation of Certified Financial Planner™, Jarrod is proud to have achieved one of the most well respected designations in his field. Jarrod and his wife Sarah are the proud parents of their 7 year old son Peyton, and their 5 year old daughter Kailey. They are also excited to be expecting a new baby girl soon. When he is not working, Jarrod enjoys playing golf and coaching his son’s baseball team.
