Loren Merkle

At Weiss-Merkle Financial, our sole focus is YOU.

Loren Merkle, CFP®

As a child, Loren received a $5 monthly allowance if he completed his daily chores. It didn’t take him long to understand the need for self-discipline and attention to detail. He also learned it didn’t take long to spend $5, and that if he wanted real buying power, he would have to budget and save with intention.

Today, Loren is a Certified Financial Planning™ practitioner with over 20 years of experience. He is passionate about mentoring others toward financial freedom and co-founded Weiss-Merkle Financial to give him a bigger platform to help those who could benefit from his guidance. He also shares his knowledge through teaching adult education classes in the Des Moines community and co-hosting  “The Weiss-Merkle Financial Show” that airs on ABC5 Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m.
