Plan Intentionally. Live Generously.

These two simple phrases have guided CEOs and Wealth Advisors Zac Larson and Corey Schmidt for nearly 40 combined years, both with their clients and in their personal lives. It has been the cornerstone of their practice and now it’s the inspiration for their new name – IntentGen Financial Partners.

As an independent practice of Thrivent Financial, IntentGen Financial Partners retains the best that Thrivent offers, but can now offer new ways to serve their clients and their community in ways even greater than before. By empowering people to make wise financial decisions, IntentGen Financial Partners helps clients plan intentionally and live generously in order to maximize the impact on their families and their communities.

Our Mission

Empower people to make intentional financial decisions to live with greater purpose.

Our Vision

To be servant leaders by putting our values into play each day. We envision a world where people feel unrivaled confidence and positivity about their financial decisions as they make an intentional difference - for their family, future generations, the community, and those less fortunate.
