About Our Firm
For over 15 years, Shawn Durand has been assisting high net worth individuals, professionals and business owners to more secure retirement outcomes. “I believe most retirement systems aren’t necessarily set up to achieve a reliable income stream,” says Shawn.
Certified Financial Planner™, John Chluski, has joined Shawn as part of Assurance Financial Group. It has proven to be a perfect fit for these professionals and for their clients. “People are trying to educate themselves on their retirement options,” explains Shawn, “and that’s where John and I come in. We provide education and a customized retirement income plan that the client clearly understands.”
“Our mission,” says John, “is to help people realize the need to be protected from the unexpected.” Shawn agrees, adding, “We work to help people avoid losing money in the biggest casino called ‘Wall Street’ and instead build their wealth safely and securely. Creating an income stream our clients CAN’T outlive is the most important thing.”
Shawn’s 35 year career spans from 11 years with Minnesota Department of Revenue to President, CFO and Director of public companies. He is a committed Lion’s Club member and co-founded the Lions Foundation of Northeast Minneapolis.
