About Michael Cook:
Michael Cook has spent more than two decades in financial services as an entrepreneur in San Antonio. He started his own insurance agency 25 years ago, and has been independent for the last 15 years. “We chose to become independent because that allows us to work for the client instead of the insurance company. It gives us a better approach in terms of what product fits best for each individual, instead of a one-size-fits all from just one company’s product line,” Mike says.
Mike’s firm, NGB Financial, has a history of working with large and small business owners and employers with group plans including health care, and they still design employee benefit programs. But they have migrated more toward retirement planning and college planning for individual families in the last decade or so, as they saw the need increasing. “We like to help take the confusion out of planning for retirement, and help make a college education possible for our clients’ kids,” he says.
Mike received his business degree in economics from Sam Houston State University (SHSU). He married his high school sweetheart, Karan, 31 years ago and they have two daughters—one just graduated from Texas Tech University, and the other is working on her PhD in psychology in Palo Alto, California. Mike loves golfing as well as exploring the great hiking trails around the San Antonio area with Karan.
