Dennis R. Spangler, CFP®

Investment Adviser Representative

Dennis began his career in financial services in 1991, during a time of significant change in the industry. With tax code reform and the adoption of individual retirement accounts and the 401(k) plan, the way people looked at investing, estate planning, retirement planning, and tax planning was changing. As an undergraduate at Grove City College, Dennis studied the emerging holistic methods, crafting financial case studies as part of his coursework. He enjoyed the gratification of building paths toward financial security, and determined that it was not only numbers that influenced sound financial choices, but also people and their unique circumstances.

After graduating with his Bachelor of Arts degree in Finance, Dennis joined Cigna Financial Advisors; unusual at that time, the firm’s practice was based on holistic financial planning and provided Dennis with continued education and the opportunity to build long-term relationships with his clients. Keeping pace with the evolving field of finance, Dennis added the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER TM (CFP®) Designation to his credentials to better serve clients’ needs. Dennis works extensively with retiring teachers and administrators who are participants in the Pennsylvania State Employees Retirement System (PSERS).

Financial planning today has become less associated with any specific product or investment and far more associated with individual investor goals and strategies. As co-owner and founding partner of DSF Wealth Management Group, LLC, Dennis has built a team of financial and support professionals who share his belief in educating people to make well-informed financial decisions. Regardless of short-term market performance or volatility, it is an evaluation of client needs, identification of client goals, and implementation of customized strategies that shapes his planning process.

Throughout his career, Dennis’ practice has been motivated by his passion to help people. He works with a wide variety of individuals in every walk and era of life each with the desire to utilize earnings and wealth as a means to build a better life for themselves and their families. Dennis’ primary goal is to build lasting relationships to help individuals define and work towards securing their future, whatever life may bring.

Dennis and his wife, Michele, are longtime residents of Moon Township, Pennsylvania, and they attend St. James Church in Sewickley. Their daughter, Natalie, pursues her degree in physical therapy at Saint Francis University. Matthew, their son, attends Moon Township High School and will soon graduate and start college. The Spanglers are actively involved in soccer with both Natalie and Matthew playing, and the whole family has traveled the U.S. extensively for college and cup team matches. Despite his family’s hectic schedule, Dennis makes time for regular pick-up games and events with other fathers of Moon students, and he enjoys golfing and going hunting each year.
