Brian Raleigh

Founder & President

After working over a decade as an agent for a Fortune 500 company, Brian took a leap of faith and started TruWealth Strategies. TruWealth became Raleigh Wealth Solutions in 2015. Since 1995, Brian has brought safer income strategies and effective tax and legacy planning to his clients. This holistic approach helps clients get closer to achieving their desired retirement.

Throughout the years, Brian has seen countless individuals forced to extend their work life due to poor planning or market losses. For that reason, he tells his clients to hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

He also is always looking for new strategies and ways to save on taxes to help preserve and potentially increase retirement income. Brian is continually learning so he can provide the most up-to-date and sound investment strategies for his clients.

Born and raised in Swanton, Vermont. Brian graduated from the University of Vermont with a Bachelor of Science in education. He earned his master’s degree from Western Carolina University and obtained his LUTCF in 1999, with a focus on estate and business planning.

Brian and Raleigh Wealth Solutions are members of the Better Business Bureau and the National Ethics Bureau. When Brian is not working to create financial independence for his clients, he enjoys coaching his son’s hockey team and is very active in the hockey community. He devotes his time to helping others learn the game and continues to compete in the local men’s league. Outside of hockey, Brian enjoys hiking, biking, and canoeing. Brian and his wife, Jill, have four children, ages 22, 20, 17, and 11.

Here in Raleigh, Brian is known as “Raleigh’s Retirement Coach.” To hear his show, tune into WTKK 106.1 on Saturday from 10–10:30 a.m. or 1-2 p.m. and then again on Sunday from 12–1 p.m.
