The Horner Group, LTD, is a financial advisory firm assisting individuals and businesses with financial and retirement planning. Located in Rolling Meadows, IL, this company serves the northwest suburbs of Chicago, including Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Prospect Heights, Des Plaines, Schaumburg, Barrington, Palatine, Deerfield, Wheeling, Downers Grove, and Mt Prospect. The company was founded in 2005 by Randy Horner, who has an MBA from the Keller Graduate School of Management.

This company offers a Three Step Review of their clients' finances before making financial decisions. The first step is a review of the client's tax review to uncover issues such as phantom income taxation, incorrect usage of taxable and tax-deferred strategies and missed opportunities for offsetting gains and losses. This step is meant to lower taxes and provide more income which can be invested. The next step is an income analysis to determine whether the client is using his or her income properly and whether there is a more tax-efficient method to use income. This step determines whether the client will have enough income to meet future needs based on inflation. The third step is a risk analysis to ensure that the investment risk exposure is one that the client is comfortable with and is suitable for the investment allocation strategies used.

Services available from this company include retirement planning, financial planning, investment planning, asset protection, tax planning, estate planning, IRA legacy planning, trusts, life and long term care insurance, tax preparation, charitable giving, and IRA and 401(k) rollovers.
