Daniel Frankel is a Fee Only Financial planner in Bellevue, WA. Daniel Frankel is a NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisor.

I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® with 10 years of experience helping professionals make smart, lasting financial decisions. I am passionate about bringing a transparent, authentic and personal experience to my clients.

As Founding Principal of WealthCollab, I collaborate with clients to develop and implement an individualized framework for making prudent decisions in all areas of finance. Ultimately, my goals are pretty straightforward, I want clients to meet their financial objectives and have confidence along the way. To that end, I help clients manage cash flows, budgets, investments, real estate, taxes, debt and any other areas that effect their financial situation.

As a child, I had an interest in finance and read way too many self-help financial books (yes, I was that dorky). Some of the books definitely had some great advice, however, I immediately noticed how difficult it was to apply these concepts to an individual situation. For that reason, I dedicated my professional life to helping others navigate the financial landscape and digest the myriad of best practices, quick tips, and blog posts.

I have been fortunate to have a varied career in wealth management, I have worked for a couple large firms and helped to start a smaller firm serving technology executives in Portland, OR.  Recently, my wife and I got married and decided that it made sense to move closer to family and relocate to the Greater Seattle Area.

I graduated from Denison University with a degree in Math and Economics.  As I value ongoing education, I am currently pursuing an MBA at the Foster School of Business at University of Washington.

The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is a 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.

WealthCollab was created to help analytically minded business owners and technology professionals achieve and maintain financial independence.

As a boutique firm, we take a uniquely personal and transparent approach to understanding and advising on your fundamental financial priorities. While making smart investment decisions is critical to success, a focus on other areas of your finances like taxes, budgeting, insurance needs, retirement contributions, savings targets and business/real estate interests can be just as important.

For this reason, our focus is to provide a comprehensive framework for aligning ALL your financial decisions with your objectives.

Unlike traditional firms, WealthCollab charges a fixed fee rather than a percentage of assets or commission schedule. In most cases, this better aligns our interests and saves clients money.
