Peter R. Wechsler



Since co-founding Franklin Retirement Solutions nearly 15 years ago, Peter Wechsler has strived to protect his clients’ financial assets, calibrate inflation adjusted income planning and ensure a comprehensive and coordinated approach to retirement planning.  As Your Retirement Quarterback®, Peter has built one of the premier financial planning firms in the Delaware Valley – being named a Five Star Wealth Manager* for Overall Client Satisfaction in the Philadelphia area for over seven consecutive years.

A contributing factor to the satisfaction of Franklin Retirement’s clients is that under one roof, Peter has assembled a team of experts in all disciplines of retirement planning.  This includes a Medicare and long term specialist, a life insurance expert, a tax planner, an estate planning attorney, and of course, a registered investment advisor (RIA) dually certified as a licensed insurance professional – Your Retirement Quarterback®, Peter Wechsler.


Peter’s Quotes Worth Requoting


As an RIA, Peter is held to a higher standard than stock brokers and has a fiduciary obligation to act only in his clients’ best interest.  Peter takes pride in building long term relationships with his clients.  His primary goal is to continually improve his clients’ financial positions while protecting their assets.  Using Franklin Retirement’s proprietary review process, a comprehensive retirement plan is reviewed and developed.  This process looks at areas of concerns in retirement such as:  income planning, tax savings, investment strategies, estate planning and health care.

Peter was born and raised in the West Oak Lane/Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia and now resides in Bala Cynwyd.  He is a past president of the Jewish Federation of Bucks County, past vice-president of Junior Achievement of Delaware Valley and has been a foster dad for many years.  He works closely with his son, Jeremy, the Estate Planning Attorney for Franklin Retirement Solutions.  Father and son can both be heard on the radio where they banter back and forth on retirement and estate planning issues.

In 1971, at the age of nineteen, Peter founded Vend-Rite Service Corporation and sold it in 1997 after having grown the organization to become the largest independently owned vending and food service company in the Philadelphia area.  Peter has since enjoyed a great second career in the financial services industry.
