Reginald D. Clark, CFP® is a Certified Financial Planner™ Practitioner. He is also the CEO of P3 Financial Group, P3 Wealth Management and P3 Insurance Group. His mission is to enhance the lives of his clients by helping them PLAN, PROTECT & PROSPER™. (P3)
Reginald was born and raised in Jackson Tennessee. His mother tells a story that even as a small child Reginald was fascinated with the financial news as the stock market ticker would go across the bottom of the screen. She says that after the financial news would go off, he’d go back to playing.
After graduating with Honors from Jackson Central Merry High School, he headed one hour south to Memphis Tennessee to attend what was then Memphis State University. While at The University of Memphis, Reginald majored in Finance and landed an internship with Prudential in the financial services department. This was the beginning of his love for helping people manage their finances. In 1997, he received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Finance. He also went on to obtain an Executive Certificate in Financial Planning from Christian Brothers University. After college, Reginald began his career with MetLife but dreamed of having his own financial planning firm.
In 2002, his dream came true. Reginald Clark founded P3 Wealth Management. Having his own firm meant having the independence and freedom to base recommendations on the best interest of his clients and not products mandated by another company.
Today, Reginald and his team operates three separate entities. P3 Insurance Group is an independent property and casualty company offering insurance protection for businesses, homes and automobiles. P3 Financial Group is a full-service financial services and accounting firm offering financial products and services for individuals and businesses. P3 Wealth Management is now an independent fee-only Registered Investment Advisory firm offering investment services and financial planning for individuals, retirees, business owners and corporations. Being an independently owned and operated Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firm means that P3 is not beholden to any large corporation.
Reginald’s calling to do what is best for his clients pushed him to obtain the highest designation in the financial planning industry. In 2004, Reginald passed a rigorous 2-day, 10-hour exam to receive the marks of Certified Financial Planner™ Practitioner. In Reginald’s quest to educate his clients and the community, he continues to hold financial seminars and has authored two books.
According to Clark, one of the greatest aspects of his job is seeing the immediate positive impact his work can have on a family. “My profession allows me to be compensated for helping people make wise decisions with their money and other assets. That’s a good feeling.” Reginald’s care for others doesn’t stop there. He is a devoted member of his church serving as Elder and Board Member. He also serves on the board of three non-profit organizations and is the former President of the Alumni chapter of his fraternity. He cherishes the time he spends with his wife, three daughters, grandson and extended family. He enjoys reading, movies, and most of all traveling.
