After much due diligence and with the primary goal to serve clients better, Jesse and his team partnered with Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network. This independent association allows Jesse and his team to focus even more on the unbiased planning and investment needs of his multi-generational long-term client base, including their second-generation (2G) and third generations (3G).

Rodriquez Wealth Management continues to grow and thrive through new introductions from satisfied clients and through professional intermediaries, typically accountants and attorneys.
