ALLEN NEUENSCHWANDER, CPA, CFP®

FOUNDER & PRINCIPAL OWNER

A devastating family tragedy brought Allen into the world of financial planning and investment management. After picking up the pieces, Allen began a crusade to help others avoid the financial calamity his family endured. He has been dedicated to that work ever since.

Allen is on a mission to empower and educate investors and small business owners to build a better future and make more informed financial decisions. Focused on strategic retirement income planning, he founded Outlook Wealth Advisors and has over 25 years of experience serving clients in the Greater Houston area. Allen’s specialty is discovering each client’s unique needs and goals and then helping them construct their own customized retirement income plan. He is an experienced educator, radio talk show host, and author who has written for Forbes and Kiplinger’s magazine, and he is co-author of  “Mistake Free Retirement” and  “Retire Abundantly.”

After completing his education, Allen began a career as an auditor with a “Big 5” multinational accounting firm. This career was interrupted by his military service as a U.S. Army Finance Officer, where he was promoted to First Lieutenant prior to an honorable discharge. In addition to the rigorous requirements to become a CPA, he also completed the extensive training program to become a Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®). This unique background and training give him a perspective few advisors possess.

Married to his college sweetheart, Stephanie, they have three grown sons and eight grandchildren. They are very proud that all three sons are small business owners and making an impact in their respective careers and communities. The couple enjoys spending time with their family, especially their grandchildren.
