In 2009, Laura Barron co-founded Barron Financial Group, LLC with her husband and business partner, Keith Barron. Their firm’s mission is to guide clients to and through retirement, utilizing income and investment planning, legacy and estate planning, and tax-efficient strategies. They're also skilled in navigating the complexities of Medicare and help clients plan for long-term care (LTC).
Barron Financial Group’s mission is to make a positive, life-giving difference in the lives of their clients and their loved ones by helping them envision their dreams and create a comprehensive plan to grow, protect, and transfer their wealth; delivered with the highest level of personal service and professional integrity.
Laura graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Upon graduation, she was employed at an insurance company in Greensboro, NC. Years later, Laura and Keith moved to Washington, DC., where she worked for one of the largest broker-dealers in the country at that time. There, she worked closely with traders in her office and Wall Street brokers on a daily basis.
After taking a few years off to be with her young children, Laura and her husband moved to Columbia, SC in 1994, where she became the manager of senior services for a local insurance agency. During this time, she helped clients at or near retirement solve the many problems they face, including the challenges of healthcare and the risk of outliving their retirement savings.
Three years later, Laura formed her own company to help retirees navigate those same complex retirement issues, and set out to show her clients what she’s always done—offer proven ways to protect their assets and provide a lifetime of economic security.
Thanks to her honesty, integrity, and commitment to client satisfaction, Laura has been recognized as a top producer for several insurance companies, but believes she better serves her clients by being an independent producer.
Laura has been a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) for many years and has served on the board of her local association in various roles. She’s also a member of the National Ethics Association (NEA), and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Laura has also earned several designations, including the Certification for Long-Term Care (CLTC), National Social Security Association (NSSA) and the Life and Annuity Certified Professional (LACP).
Laura and Keith have been married since 1979, and have three children and four grandchildren who all live in Columbia. In her free time, she enjoys exercising, exploring the outdoors, hiking, canoeing, reading, traveling, and spending time with family.
