Our reputation in the community is evidenced by the many loyal, longtime clients who have entrusted their lifesavings with us!

Our History

Riviera Wealth Management debuted in 2015 - the same year we formed an alliance with Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network.  Our firm is the culmination of 20+ years of develping a wealth management firm -- Retirement Protection Group (RPG).  Founded by Thomas A. Gray, MBA and Christina Jesperson, MA in 1995, RPG grew and developed into a well-known and respected financial advisory firm. Throughout the years, we assembled a competent team of professionals including portfolio managers offering proprietary strategies for discretionary investment accounts.

After 20 years of growth and development, we decided that a "re-branding" of our firm was in order.  Since the term "wealth management" is now synonomous with high level investment management, we decided to incorporate that term in the company name.  Hence - we now have "Riviera Wealth Management"

We feel that we have incorporated the best attributes of RPG, and now with our affliliation with Wells Fargo Financial Network, -- the  best is yet to come!
