Our company, Cavanaugh Financial Group, was started by Joseph Cavanaugh in 1966 and is now owned and managed by his son, John Cavanaugh. Being a second-generation business, we know the importance of family and we understand that financial planning is more than just managing an IRA.  Together, we create value in early and thoughtful planning.  Let our family help yours.  

John Cavanaugh, CFP  , CRPC


John is an Independent Financial Advisor and holds himself to a fiduciary standard.  He strives to act as a fiduciary with clients' best interests in mind.

John began with Cavanaugh Financial Group after graduating from the University of St. Thomas with a degree in Business Entrepreneurship.  Shortly after joining the family business, John took an interest in helping others plan for retirement.  He now holds two professional designations specializing in retirement planning, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER    (CFP   ) and

Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor    (CRPC   ). 

John grew up in Plymouth near his family's financial planning business.  Investments, retirement plans, and life insurance were often topics at the family dinner table; therefore, discussing finances with other families has been a natural fit for John.  In his free time, John enjoys spending time with his wife and children.  His hobbies include chasing another hole-in-one on the golf course, dreaming about his next marathon, and drinking coffee at all hours.
