About Us

Let's make your dream retirement a reality.

Foguth Financial Group was established in 2009 by Michael Foguth with the mission to remove barriers to maximize retirement dollars and reduce the financial pressures of those nearing or in retirement.

Michael started with in-home client appointments, before opening our first office in 2011 in Howell, Michigan. In 2016, after many years of rapid growth, Foguth Financial Group moved to its current headquarters in Brighton, Michigan. In 2019, Foguth Financial Group opened its first satellite office in Northville, Michigan. Since then, Michael has been able to expand his advisory and support staff across eight office locations to conveniently service clients in-person. From simple beginnings, Foguth Financial Group has expanded to meet the needs of its clientele. Today, Michael and his team are dedicated to educating their clients so they can make informed financial decisions.
