Retirement Benefits Group, a financial advisory firm headquartered in San Diego, has expanded into Hawaii.

Honolulu-based advisor Asa Kajihiro recently joined the team of advisors after 12 years with Edward Jones, RBG said in a statement. Kajihiro is a graduate of the University of Hawaii West Oahu.

The firm, which has 15 affiliate offices nationwide, has been “actively pursuing a presence in the Aloha State” and Kajihiro’s addition to the firm will help “build our retirement plan business in Hawaii,” said Dave Utter, a principal with RBG.
