Since 2004, when the company was founded, AAG has been helping older Americans leverage their home equity as a responsible and sustainable option for achieving additional financial security and a better retirement.

Fueling this mission is the fact that about 10,000 baby boomers are turning 65 every day, many of whom are worried that the traditional retirement model of Social Security, savings/investments and a retirement plan, such as a pension or 401(k) plan, will no longer be enough to retire securely and comfortably.*

“So, we set out to find options that could greatly improve their lives by removing financial hardship,” said Reza Jahangiri, AAG’s founder and chief executive officer.

And that work continues today with even more passion and purpose. Not only has AAG’s highly-trained and compassionate workforce made AAG the nation’s No. 1 reverse mortgage lender, but it is providing older seniors with an expanded range of home equity options personalized to their unique retirement needs and goals.

From the start, AAG has been a Caring, Driven and Ethical company:

  • Caring for the people we serve by helping them retire comfortably, securely and with dignity.
  • Driven to educate older homeowners about the range of home equity options available to help them achieve a better retirement.
  • Ethical and principled leadership that always places the interests and needs of our customers first.

AAG has made retirement better for thousands of seniors, and now we look forward to the opportunity to serve and help you achieve your better retirement.
