It all started in 1983 when Len Fischer, an ERISA attorney, figured out that retirement funds could be used as business funding, and the first Rainmaker Plan® was created.  He took this unique concept to the franchise industry - and they loved it.

Since then, Benetrends Financial has grown by leaps and bounds.  As the authority in franchise funding, and a preferred partner of the IFA, more than 30,000 entrepreneurs have opened the doors to their own business, using their own retirement funds, tax-deferred and penalty-free.
