We're here to help plan your retirement with confidence

Our Mission

Ashton & Associates assists pre-retirees and retirees alike in preparing and executing their vision of a successful retirement. Our clients are confident, educated, and excited for the best next chapter of their lives. Confidence in retirement comes with financial awareness. We continue educating our clients throughout their retirement because life happens, and we believe that knowledge is power. Our clients are excited because understanding their finances means that they can focus on the truly important things in retirement, and it’s not money!

Abe Ashton

Owner/Insurance Agent

The founder of Ashton & Associates, Abe Ashton is a seasoned and skilled professional with more than 20 years of experience helping thousands of individuals and families in Utah, Nevada, and across the country secure their retirements.

With a background in retirement strategizing, Abe now focuses on working with seniors and retirees, connecting clients with the right financial tools so they can enjoy their golden years. In 1998, he first founded One for the Money Financial, where he helped find strategies to safeguard his clients from volatile financial vehicles while also helping them grow their retirement income.

“I have the best job in the world! Each day I get to sit down with incredible people who
have lived such unique lives. I benefit from learning from individuals who have had
vastly different life experiences than my own. I hear about their military service,
marriage(s), travel, professional lives and families (especially their grandchildren). I
learn about the first chapters of their lives to help them plan the remaining chapters and
I love reading the entire book. Ultimately, I am grateful for the trust my clients place in us
and for allowing us the privilege of serving them as they enjoy their own unique version
of a happy retirement."

The most important thing to him, though, is his wife, Kimberly, and their six children.They love to be together and you can often find them traveling.
