You’re saving lives. We’re saving livelihoods.

“I founded Radden Education Institute to honor my father’s and Uncle’s lifelong dedication to the medical community.”

– Timothy Radden,
Founder, Presenter ChFC®, AEP®, CLU®

Timothy Radden founded Radden Education Institute, in part, because he had three physicians in the family growing up — two of whom died broke.

He says, “To work and dedicate your whole life to caring for others and be plagued with lifelong financial stresses and have no generational wealth to pass along to your loved ones is a completely avoidable tragedy.”


Financial peace of mind.

The desire to help others create financial peace of mind led Radden to develop a no-cost financial literacy curriculum over a 46-year career in financial services — one especially focused on serving medical community members. During short, focused presentations, board-certified financial professionals provide tools to help them begin their own financial planning and cover topics of interest, including:

  • Debt management solutions

  • Student loan strategies

  • Tax efficiency

  • Income protection

  • Home ownership & large purchases

  • Cash flow & budgeting

  • Understanding lifestyle creep

  • What in the world is a fiduciary?

  • retirement planning
