Andrew Sivertsen is a fee-only financial planner at The Planning Center located in Moline, IL.
I enjoy helping others live a great life. I meet with small business owners, young professionals, and pre-retirees one-on-one and guide them through life’s transitions as it relates to financial planning. Some of the areas in which I lead our team are in setting up company retirement plans, Social Security & Pension Analysis, and Investment Research. Every day I get to thoughtfully serve others and witness the process of improving lives by diffusing conflicts and achieving positive solutions.
I excel at financial problem solving, which is why I pursued a degree in Finance from the University of Illinois. From there I went on to work for non-profit firms because my heart was in serving others and I could interact directly with people. During that time I found that a career in financial planning aligns perfectly with my skills in financial analysis and my passion for working with people. I joined The Planning Center in 2007 and obtained my CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification in 2012.
