Tim Plachta, CFP®

Tim Plachta, CFP® is the president and founder of Reliant Wealth Management, LLC. His background is in business management, economics and education. Those who know him best say that he is committed, well-calculated and a dynamic thinker.

Reliant Wealth Management was conceptualized after Tim’s second daughter, Ruby, was unexpectedly born with Down syndrome. The realization that he may have to help support her into adulthood made him realize he was financially unprepared. Through personal exploration of his own finances, Tim became equally passionate about helping others achieve their financial goals.

As a result, Tim opened the doors of Reliant Wealth Management in Austin, Texas and now works with clients to navigate the many financial challenges they face in their lives.
