Russ Wood joins the MFG Family following a pivot from nearly two decades as a wholesaler and Regional Vice President at Jackson National Life Distributors. Russ possesses special skills making complex financial products easy to understand. Considering his genuine likeability, sense of humor and passion for people, Russ’s transition to financial planning was an easy one. He’s known to point out that everyone has two ears but only one mouth, so you should listen twice as much as you talk. When it comes to investment and asset management, Russ wants people to know what they have and why they have it – for Russ, it’s essential to provide straightforward strategies that fit each client’s financial plan.
Russ holds his series 7 and 63 with LPL Financial and is registered as an Investment Advisor Representative with IFG Advisory, LLC.
Outside the office, Russ’s hobby is family. He stays active and connected coaching youth sports, being the Assistant Den Leader to his son’s Cub Scout Pack, skiing, and golfing when he has the chance. He lives in Maine with his wife, Lindsay, and children, Conner and Ellie, but makes regular trips to the southeast to work at Magnolia Financial Group’s offices in Roswell, Georgia. Russ is a New England sports teams’ fan and has been known to cheer for the Georgia Bulldogs.
