    Meet The Eischen Team

    Mike Eischen, MSFS, RFC, ChFC, CFS

    A graduate of The Ohio State University, Mike has completed extensive postgraduate studies in the fields of financial strategies and retirement planning and has instructed thousands of individuals through his personal finance and retirement courses.  Mike currently holds his master’s degree in financial services, the Registered and Chartered Financial Consultant designations, and the Chartered Life Underwriter and Certified Fund Specialist professional designations.  He has been providing financial advice since 1985 and is the president/CEO of The Eischen Group, whose mission is to help working Americans:

    1. Create and gain wealth
    2. Develop an exit strategy with retirement assets
    3. Protect and preserve life savings
    4. Plan for a life legacy

    His practice primarily works in advanced financial strategies and retirement and estate planning analysis from a biblical perspective and a net perspective, helping clients consider inflation and tax strategies to improve their financial future.

    From a Biblical perspective in that, “What does God say in the Bible about your stewardship of His money?” From a NET perspective in that, what tax strategies can I implement with each client to reduce their tax liability both today and in the future? From a NET perspective in that, how can we reduce costs inside your investment and diminish the impact of inflation to increase your purchasing power during your retirement years.

    Mike has presented personal finance seminars at colleges, businesses and churches that focus on the achievement of lifelong financial security.

    Mike can be heard: 
    Mike can be heard 2:30 to 3 p.m. and 6 to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday on am880 WRFD.
