About Agrandar Associates Inc.
Agrandar Associates is dedicated to working closely with employers and employees of the companies we service long after the plan has been put in place. In many cases, there is a diminishing level of service after the sale has been made. This is what sets us apart from other financial services firms.
At Agrandar, we believe that the work really begins after the plan is put in place. We are dedicated to meeting one on one with every employee to develop their goals and objectives. Understanding the individual needs of your company and its employees is the most critical step in a successful retirement plan.

"Toby started as the financial planner for my employer’s 401K. Shortly after I had started my 401k with my company, there were a couple of major events is our financial situation. My husband was retired, unwillingly, after 15 years with a company, and my father passed away leaving us a modest inheritance to administer. Toby has been instrumental in placing funds and helping preparing us for our early retirement. He has listened to our plan/goals and has found ways to make it work. Thank you Toby."

"I own two small businesses in the Phoenix area. I met Anthony Blair approximately five years ago and had him set up a 401(k) and Defined Benefits plan for my companies. Anthony walked me through the process, made recommendations about the financial products that we should offer, and was a great help in implementing the plans for the business and my employees. With so many choices and decisions to make, it was great having someone available to take all of the guess work out of the process and make it really easy to implement the programs. The financial products that Anthony recommended have produces incredible results, despite the economic calamities during this time period. The products provide a great mix of upside potential while minimizing the risk. I would recommend Anthony Blair and Agrandar Associates to anyone seeking financial advice and service products. Keep up the great work!"
