Ben Taatjes


Ben Taatjes is the founder and CEO of Taatjes Financial Group—a leading retirement planning firm with two offices in west-central Minnesota.

Ben opened Taatjes Financial’s doors in 2006, and did so with the belief that money alone doesn’t make us happy. Since then, he’s built a team upon that foundation.

Ben’s passion is helping people move their financial assets from numbers on a page into real life. This means assets are converted to match people’s “true wealth.” From folks on the cusp of retirement to those just getting started, helping clients achieve their goals is what makes Ben tick. Ultimately, this means building lasting relationships with everyone who walks through his doors.

When he isn’t in the office, you can usually find Ben on an outdoor adventure, making memories with his family, or on an annual trip to Haiti to see how the rest of the world lives. Ben lives with his wife, Megan, and daughters, Lauren and Addilyn, in west-central Minnesota.
