Darrell Ruchotzke

Financial Advisor

As the founder of R Financial Group, Darrell's primary role is to advise clients on how to navigate financial planning, tax, and investment decisions. Darrell focuses on providing clients with unbiased advice in order to help them clarify their goals and objectives. This often includes building a plan that takes into consideration investments, estate planning, tax strategies, wealth protection, and preservation. All mutual funds are sold through Portfolio Strategies Corporation, and all other products and services are offered through R Financial Group Inc.

Darrell is married to Susan and has four adult children. Outside of analyzing numbers, Darrell can be found outdoors. During the summer, the lake is the place to be, and during the winter months, downhill and cross-country skiing continues to be his lifelong passion. His long-term goal is to ski past 70 years of age because that's when lift tickets are free.
