D. Christopher Benfer, CFP®, ChFC®, AIF®


Having worked in financial services since 1994, Chris has learned a lot about what really matters to his clients – trust.  Chris has worked hard, using integrity, authenticity and knowledge to earn the trust of his clients through the years.  Many of Chris’ clients have worked with him for 25 years.

Chris, and his partner Matt MacNeal, have worked together since 2004 to create a financial planning practice that delivers the best experience possible for their clients.  Their focus on client relationships and customized planning has worked well for their boutique planning approach.  The Private Wealth Management division of Blue Rock Avenue 1 Advisors, has grown to be one of the biggest in the Delaware Valley.

Since 2012, Chris has worked with Cortney Milner to expand their retirement plan practice into a regional presence.  With today’s increasingly complex regulatory environment, it is imperative that plan fiduciaries work with firms, like Blue Rock Retirement Plan Services, that specialize in the retirement plan business.  Cortney and Chris have worked together to develop a practice that has the expertise, systems, and technology necessary to deliver the best in class experience to their retirement plan clients.


Chris graduated from Wilmington Friends School and has a B.A. in Economics from Bucknell University.
