Our History

Saving for retirement, nearing retirement and living in retirement are stages of life that we specialize in, and have been for over four decades. What began as a focus on education and non-profit markets has grown to encompass a multifaceted financial services firm for a comprehensive clientele. Throughout a successful career in the financial services industry, John DeLiso was at the forefront of developing strategies to help educators save for retirement through specialized, tax advantaged retirement plans. In time, John and his partners grew this vision to include New Jersey public school systems around the state and, in the year 2000, nationally.

Known as the Retirement Benefits Group (RBG), a division of AXA Advisors LLC, it became one of the nation's leading providers of retirement plans for educators. The RBG continues to flourish with its genesis in New Jersey, servicing over 85,000 clients in over 580 public schools who are saving for retirement and expanding into full financial strategies. We are proud that our clients have accumulated over 4.1 billion in retirement assets[1].

In 2015 John combined this professional experience and his personal dream to create the FourFront Group along with three founding partners – all who encompass the same dedication and foresight with which the RBG was developed.  Rooted in the four principles of strategic financial planning, John’s vision for his clients and for FourFront remains the same as his career success with AXA: Service; Knowledge; Commitment; Growth.

With over 6,000 clients nearing or living at retirement, the FourFront Group is comprised of industry leaders who take a multifaceted approach to financial planning to further service their clients’ individual needs.

We are a dedicated group of leading advisors whose unique talents specialize in the extended financial planning needs of educators, school employees, non-profit organizations, families, business professionals, hospitals, higher education, and government employees.  Our members concentrate in: Asset Management; Estate Planning; Wealth Accumulation; Retirement Planning; Education Funding and Business Succession planning services for all our clients' financial needs.

We remain committed to maintaining the highest standards of integrity and professionalism in our relationship with you. We define our success by our clients' success.
