Founded in 1999, Capital Planning Group grew out of a partnership between a property and casualty insurance agency, Seitlin & Co., and accounting firm, Mallah Furman & Co. Both Mallah Furman and Seitlin successfully offered clients in their respective fields the highest degree of prefessional expertise and advice and unparelled customer experience. The goal in creating Captial Planning Group was to establish a financial planning firm with these same high service standards.

The outcome was CApital Planning Group, which actively began recruiting Certified Financial Planners TM based on areas of specialization that would allow virtually every aspect of a client’s financial plan to be handled in- house.
