WAUKESHA — Jannsen Wealth Management and R& R Insurance Services Inc. announced Monday that as of Jan. 1, Jannsen Wealth Management became R& R Wealth Management LLC.

R& R Insurance Services Inc. still exists in addition to R& R Wealth Management LLC, which is also owned by the Riesch family. The Jannsen and Riesch families have maintained both a business and personal relationship over the last 40 years that makes them confident that combining their strengths will help them better serve the community.

“We are incredibly excited about the partnership with R& R and the Riesch family,” said Terry Jannsen, president of Jannsen Wealth Management. “Together we plan

to grow our services and continue serving clients throughout Southeast Wisconsin and beyond.“ Michael Franz, chief operating officer for R& R Insurance Services, explained that as part of that growth, R& R Wealth Management LLC will aim to widen the portfolio of professional services offered to clients, and create a synergy between the two firms.

“This acquisition is something fairly recent,” said Franz. “R& R Insurance Services is owned by the Riesch family and we feel there is an opportunity to bring wealth management services to the R& R insurance family. Now, we have the opportunity to not only offer personal and commercial benefits and life insurance, but we now have the opportunity to offer our clients’ wealth management services.”

Franz explained that the common theme between the two firms is that they are family owned and both businesses will be involved within the community, as giving back is a major focus.

“This is an exciting opportunity for both firms to showcase our complementary strengths while also expanding our service offerings,” said Jack Riesch, one of the family owners of R& R Insurance Services.

Terry Jannsen is a University of Wisconsin-Whitewater graduate with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Accounting degree. For 25 years, he has provided both tax and wealth management services to the Waukesha County community. Jack Riesch is a Marquette University graduate who has served Waukesha County since 1975. Both men have worked with the Justin J. Watt Foundation, the Boy Scout of America and the YMCA of Greater Waukesha County, among other organizations.
