Troy Stine

Financial Professional and President of Stine Financial Group

Troy Stine left his family’s Stine Lumber Co. in 1998 to start his career as a financial advisor. With more than 17 years of experience, Troy has developed a specialization in retirement income and tax-efficient distribution planning. In 2007, Troy started Stine Financial because of his passion for working with pre-retirees, retirees, and small-business owners by educating and advising them to ensure a secure retirement. He does this through a holistic approach by helping families with a customized plan that aligns investments, insurance, taxes and estate planning that will take them through their retirement years and generations to come.

As a member of the Financial Educator’s Network, Troy believes that education is a major facet in securing financial independence. Troy has conducted nearly 100 educational workshops spanning the past ten years. His topics are as varied as tax reform, estate preservation, and asset protection. In addition to these topics, Troy’s educational workshops have also included simple lessons on how to file and organize important documents as well as on reducing expenses. This has established him as a leader in educating his community on tax and retirement issues.

Through Troy’s education endeavors, he has worked with many organizations, private and public corporations, professional associations, civic groups, and universities to educate and promote sound financial planning information. He was awarded the professional designation of registered financial consultant by the International Association of Registered Financial Consultants, a non-profit educational and professional organization established in 1984.

Troy is committed to aligning himself with some of the most prominent financial professionals in the country. These professionals include nationally known Harvard-trained economic forecaster Harry Dent, top distribution planner Paul Grangaurd, and nationally renowned CPA, Ed Slott. Troy is also a member of the Elite Advisors Group, an exclusive organization for financial advisors dedicated to being leaders in the IRA industry. This support allows him to keep up with ever-changing economic and tax laws to provide sound advice to the clients and friends that he serves.

Troy resides in Lake Charles, LA with his wife Angie and their four boys, ages 5, 9, 13, and 15. Troy and Angie married in 1998 and spend their free time hunting and fishing as well as attending their children’s sporting and academic activities. Troy is also active in his church, Lake Charles’ Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, where he serves on its service and missionary board.
