Ben Weiner, CIMA®, CFP®

Director, WPWG Financial Advisor, RJFS |

A founder and Director of the Winter Park Wealth Group, Ben has provided sound investment and financial advice since 1984. Ben spent more than 23 years working alongside his father, Richard, who enjoyed a 47-year career beginning in 1962. Today, Ben’s many areas of specialization include financial planning, estate planning, portfolio management and college planning. He has been recognized by Shook Research/Forbes in the Best in State Wealth Advisors rankings every year from 2019 - 2023.

Ben’s mission is to help his clients plan for and achieve the financial goals that are important to them – and to do so by taking the least amount of risk, while providing the highest probability of success. He has seen clients go through the accumulation phase of wealth during their working years, as well as the distribution phase in retirement. As a result, Ben has developed insightful, yet distinct, strategies for addressing both important stages of life.

Ben cares deeply for his clients, and throughout his long career, has always reminded himself that trust and integrity must be earned each day.

The Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. This ranking is based upon the period from 6/30/2021 to 6/30/2022 and was released on 4/04/2023. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of seven years experience, and the algorithm weights factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Out of approximately 39,007 nominations, 7,321 advisors received the award. The ranking is not indicative of an advisor’s future performance, is not an endorsement, and may not be representative of individual client’s experience. Neither Raymond James nor any of its financial advisors or RIA firms pay a fee in exchange for this award/rating. Raymond James is not affiliated with Forbes or Shook Research, LLC.
