Our Team

The Helm Group has been working with individuals and families since 2000, building the business on a basis of comprehensive financial planning.

Dennis L. Helm, FLMI, CMFC, RTRP

The President, Dennis L. Helm, became a Fellow in the Life Management Institute (FLMI) in 1984, specializing in Information Systems.  He was licensed as an agent in the life and health insurance industry that year.

Following a 20-year career in computer systems in banking and insurance, Mr. Helm made the decision to do what he does best.    That is to help others in financial management.

Toward that end, Mr. Helm completed FINRA Series 7 and 66 examinations to become a securities Registered Representative and Investment Advisor Representative.  He also regained his life and health insurance licensing.

After referring dozens of clients' incorrect tax returns to others, Dennis began preparing income tax returns for others in 2003.  This integral piece of financial services continues to benefit his clients.  Today he holds the designation of Registered Tax Return Preparer (RTRP) and keeps current through the Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP).

In 2006 he became a Chartered Mutual Fund Counselor (CMFC) and began courses through the College for Financial Planning.

Seeing the needs of the many couples going through divorce, Dennis completed studies in 2006 to become a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA).

Continuing Education in all of these areas rounds out what is truly a lifelong learning process.
