Celebrating 40 Years


Potomac Financial Consultants is proud to announce the celebration of our 40th year in business - a remarkable milestone that we are honored to share.

In 1983, Jim Ruth founded Potomac Financial Group, a full-service financial planning firm located in Rockville Maryland. In 1993, the office moved to Montgomery Village Maryland.

Michelle Bender was handed the company reins in 2014, when Jim decided to retire. At this time, our name changed to Potomac Financial Consultants & we relocated to our current office in Germantown, Maryland. In 2017, Advisors Financial Group merged with our firm, allowing us to further expand our services throughout the United States.   

We want to thank our wonderful clients, friends, and family that have been with us through cycles, trends, and changing times. We owe our success to the loyalty and trust you have placed in us. You have made us top of mind regarding your investments and your financial future, and we are thankful to be a part of your family. 

Our anniversary is not just about celebrating the past; it is about embracing the future with optimism and determination. We are as committed as ever in offering you the best service and guidance in helping you plan for your financial future! 

Cheers to 40 years of excellence and to many more years of shared success and mutual growth!
