Meet Mark Sanders

Mark Sanders has been providing financial planning services in the greater Sacramento area since 1979. His 30 plus years of experience has laid the foundation to serve the growing needs of his clients and their families.

Mark believes that the American Dream is still alive and well and counts it an honor to help his clients achieve it.

The American dream is being able to devote the last third of your life to those things you never had time for during your working years. Retirement, if properly planned, can provide the time and resources that allow you to give meaning to your life, free from the stress and obligations of an everyday job. This is certainly possible for the average American, but it is not going to happen by chance alone. The life that you live in retirement is going to be governed by the choices you make today – choices that are critical to shaping your future.

Financial planning is one of the most important vehicles you have for working towards your retirement. The earlier that you plot a course, create a viable plan, carefully execute that plan and diligently monitor its progress, the better the outcome should be. I know how hard Americans work to achieve a better life, and I want to work with you, to help you create a retirement that you've been working towards.

An income that will last a lifetime, affordable health care and long-term care, protection from misfortune and liability, and a plan for the efficient distribution of your legacy are the keys to many people's financial goals. Companies are assuming less responsibility for their workers retirement, and meaningful Social Security benefits are in question, so it is more important than ever for individuals to take the actions necessary to ensure that their retirement needs will be met.

Mark has been a Senior Financial Services Representative with Principal Financial Group® since 2009 and carries the designations of RFC, ChFC® and CLU®. He is a member of the Association of Financial Educators, NAIFA, FSP& IARFC.

Mark is married to his wife Pennie of 37 years and they have five children and seven grandchildren. Away from the business he enjoys golf, racquetball, maintaining his property, swimming and spending time with family and friends.
