About Us CLN Financial is a full-service consulting firm located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. With over 30 years experience in financial services, our team offers incredible insight into all areas of planning, and focuses on retirement strategies for members of the telecom industry. Family-owned and operated, CLN Financial is the result of a joint venture between Chad E. Tallman and his brother-in-law, Corey L. Nigg. After suffering a traumatic brain injury from a wake-boarding accident, Corey had no choice but to end his financial advising career early and focus on recovery. Just six months before his accident, Corey obtained disability insurance — a decision that ended up saving his family from a lifetime of financial hardship. To continue Corey’s passion and namesake, Chad acquired CLN Financial and merged it with his own insurance practice. Today, the firm stands as a symbolic reminder of the critical importance insurance plays in holistic financial planning. As an independent, family-owned consulting firm, we help individuals and families plan for long-term financial well-being, peace of mind and confidence — regardless of age, gender or net worth. Call today to learn how we can help you plan for a brighter, more secure financial future.
