Ward Halleron Group

We serve our corporate and private clients with objectivity, integrity, and trust at the core of our business

The Ward Halleron Group was founded by C. Russell Ward, CFP®, AIF®, CRPS® and J. Thomas Halleron, CFP®, CRPS®. As leading consultants in the Baltimore-Washington area, we have over twenty years of experience managing corporate retirement plans as well as providing private financial planning for multi-generational client families.

Who We Serve:

  • 3(21) and 3(38) Fiduciary Services

When you enlist the services of a 401(k) Advisor, you gain a valuable ally and time-saving resource who will help you develop and maintain a solid strategy for your retirement plan.

You will receive personalized attention by focusing on your needs, continually meeting your expectations, and making you an advocate of our valuable 401(k) advisory services. As an employer and sponsor of a 401(k) plan, your company shoulders a major responsibility. You must listen to the needs of your employees and then select the appropriate service provider(s) at a reasonable cost, determine the optimal plan design provisions, choose and monitor investments, keep up with legislative changes, ensure your plan is administered properly, and educate and inform plan participants. All of this hopefully results in a plan that inspires employees to reach their retirement dreams, while helping you recruit and retain valuable associates.
