Founder, Cornerstone Retirement Group
Christopher Abts, founder of Cornerstone Retirement Group in Reno, Nevada, has dedicated nearly two decades to educating and assisting retirees and pre-retirees in how to plan for and protect their financial futures. An advocate for comprehensive financial and retirement planning, Abts ensures that all components of a client’s financial affairs work in collaboration, producing the best possible outcome.
Developer of a proprietary three-step review process, Abts utilizes this straightforward approach for assessing the impact of any major financial decisions, most specifically in the areas of tax, risk exposure and income. With this information he can successfully counsel on strategy and develop a comprehensive plan for a client’s worry-free retirement.

“People want help. They want a plan, but our industry hasn’t been telling them what they need to do to achieve their goals. They’ve been talking to salesmen rather than someone who really cares about them.”
Abts specializes in identifying potential loopholes in financial, accounting, and estate plans. He tries to detect where money is “falling through the cracks.” Abts instills in his clients and community a true understanding of the disadvantages of an unplanned retirement and the costly mistakes that can arise from lack of preparation and attention to detail.
