Hi, I’m Blake D. Hempel.
My goal is to double the amount of money the median American has when they retire. Encouraged by friends and colleagues, I founded Hempel Wealth Management LLC, an independent registered investment advisor in 2017 that uses proprietary financial technology.
I immediately fell in love with the ability to connect with clients and to play a meaningful role in improving their lives. My passion for finance led me to work on Wall Street and as a consultant for many of America’s largest and most prestigious banks including JP Morgan Chase, Deutsche Bank, Wells Fargo, GMAC, and Northern Trust.
Beyond helping clients, I am pursuing a CFP® certification at Northwestern University. The Certified Financial Planner credentials is considered by many to be the “gold standard” of financial planning profession. The CFP® certification focuses on insurance planning, income tax planning, investment planning, retirement planning, employee benefits, education planning and estate planning.
Simultaneously, I am pursuing a CFA charter. The Chartered Financial Analyst is regarded as the highest distinction in the Investment Management profession, especially in the areas of ethics, quantitative methods, economics, corporate finance, financial analysis and portfolio management.
In my spare time, I enjoy boating on the beautiful Lake Michigan, competing in triathlons and spending time with my wife, Dr. Samia Rageb Hempel, and our dog Lulu.
