Glenn is the founder of GA Bishop and Associates, LLC, a financial planning and Registered Investment Advisory firm. Located in Old Downtown Carrollton, Texas, and serving the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex, the firm specializes in three areas:

  • Providing fee-only financial planning services and investment advice to small businesses and people from all walks of life
  • Helping people near and in retirement transition from the money accumulation phase of their lives into the spend-down phase in a way that balances the maximization of standard of living against the risk of outliving one's money
  • Providing divorcing parties with specific financial analysis.

Because the firm is Fee-Only, no third-party compensation is received, minimizing potential conflicts of interest regarding compensation.
