Money Insights is founded on the principle that “off-the-shelf” products and solutions often do not meet the needs of high income earners. Our clients have a unique set of opportunities and challenges. As a strategic planning firm, we work collaboratively as a team to design customized financial solutions that will leave a lasting impact for each of our clients.

At Money Insights, we make building wealth a little bit easier!

Money Insights Christian Allen

Christian Allen

Christian brings the vision, drive and focus to Money Insights! He started in the financial services industry in 2004 working as an advisor with Beneficial Financial Group. Since that time, he’s held a variety of industry leadership and management positions including sales manager, regional marketing director, and associate partner before starting Money Insights, an alternative wealth planning firm for high income earners, in 2014.

Christian started Money Insights because traditional financial planning is broken, plain and simple! This is especially true for high-income earners. After spending the first 6 years of his career managing stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, Christian realized that he wasn’t having the impact on people’s lives that he intended. He also noticed a glaring trend as he met with clients. The great majority of his wealthy clients were doing more than just putting money in their 401k’s or IRA’s and hoping the market would do the rest. These highly successful individuals were active investors in the alternative space and had set out to find better ways to build wealth. Christian made the commitment to focus on only the most innovative, effective strategies for helping clients build their net worth. This is the driving force behind the strategic wealth building firm, Money Insights.

Christian’s team specializes in helping clients understand and implement alternative wealth-building strategies. These are powerful strategies designed for the high income and/or high net worth individual and business. He and the Money Insights team work collaboratively to design customized, high impact solutions to help clients go from high income to high net worth!

Brenyn started at a finance firm in Salt Lake City and quickly built his own practice with the same ideals and strategies that Money Insights believes in. Naturally, this led to a great fit between Brenyn and the Money Insights team. Brenyn joined the Money Insights team in 2020 and helps facilitate the education, implementation, and ongoing strategic review efforts with both the Investment Optimizer and Retirement Accelerator strategies.
