What is "Fee Only Financial Planning," and why is it important?
I am a CFP® or Certified Financial Planner™ and President of Guide Tower Financial Planning, LLC. I am a fee-only Independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) that can work in person or virtually. I believe in the power of the markets and the financial planning process. In previous roles I have worked in Philadelphia for an insurance agency, in New Jersey for a wealth management firm specializing in high net worth clients, a financial consultant for a top 20 bank and most recently as a senior wealth manager for a regional firm. My mission is to use this experience to help guide Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, Young Professionals, Retirees and Working Families.
After my time in more traditional roles I believe that working as a fee-only adviser is the most un-biased and efficient way to provide financial planning services. This means I have taken a fiduciary oath to act in my clients best interest and to not receive compensation from any outside source besides what I receive directly from my clients.
I believe in keeping investment costs low with the use of ETFs (exchange traded funds) and individual stocks. I strive to focus on the most productive areas for my clients such as career development, education, taxes, retirement, starting a business or finding funding for a new venture.
I was born and raised in New Jersey but settled into beautiful Western New York with my amazing wife, four year old daughter and two year old son. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Economics from Houghton College and a Certified Financial Planner (™) designation from the College for Financial Planning.
