As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to help you achieve your life goals. - Matthew McDaniel

Fee-Only Financial Planner serving the Knoxville, TN area.

Matthew McDaniel is a Knoxville, TN fee-only financial planner. Vision Financial Consulting provides comprehensive and objective financial planning to help clients organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Matthew McDaniel is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

I’m the founder of Vision Financial Consulting. A firm created to help young professionals and families, like my own, understand their financial lives and position themselves to reach their fullest potential. I do this work because I love it. I love to take the complex issues of money and financing and help my clients understand them (and use them!).

I live in Knoxville, Tennessee with my wife, Annie, and our son, Benjamin. When I’m not serving my clients, you can find me spending time with my family, hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains, or enjoying fellowship with friends.

Matthew McDaniel is a Member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors

The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is the country’s leading professional association of Fee-Only financial advisors - highly trained professionals who are committed to working in the best interests of those they serve.

NAPFA members live by three important values:

  • To be the beacon for independent, objective financial advice for individuals and families.
  • To be the champion of financial services delivered in the public interest.
  • To be the standard bearer for the emerging profession of financial planning

I started VFC with a deep passion for helping busy individuals who are juggling a family, job, and many other personal responsibilities. There is not enough time in the day to take care of it all. There is a tremendous amount of noise in the financial planning space. Many articles starting with “buy this,” “sell that,” and “everybody is doing it". I created VFC to be your beacon and financial sherpa in a complex world!
