As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to solve your financial problems and help you achieve your life goals. - Deva Panambur, CFA®, CFP®

Fee-Only financial planner located in New York, NY, and West New York, NJ serving clients locally, across the country and overseas

Deva Panambur is a New York, NY fee-only financial planner. Sarsi, LLC provides comprehensive and objective financial planning and investment management to help clients organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Deva Panambur is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

Deva Panambur, CFA®, CFP® is the Founder of Sarsi, LLC located in New York, NY.

I am passionate about using my 20+ year experience in investment management and financial planning to help my clients navigate through life’s transitions. I have the deep desire to make a difference in my client's lives and I am available at every point to help them make optimal decisions. Having grown up and lived in several countries in the East and the West, I bring the best of both worlds in my relationships with my clients.

Our clients are busy professionals, business owners, divorcees, retirees and pre-retirees, who look to us to simplify their complex situation. We unravel the complexity and build a financial plan in a reliable manner that allows our clients to focus on the things that are important to them. We put in the effort to educate our clients because we want them to understand what we are doing for them and work with them in a collaborative manner. As a fee-only advisor our interests are aligned with those of our clients and we are a fiduciary to them. We do not sell products, we solve problems.

Prior to founding Sarsi, LLC in 2010, I helped families preserve, protect, and grow their wealth and well-being at Executive Monetary Management, a multi-family office at Neuberger Berman.

Previously, I worked for several years in investments and risk management at Merrill Lynch Investment Managers, Chesapeake Capital Corporation and Deutsche Bank Asset Management. Earlier in my career I worked in international project finance for a shipping company in various countries and at a Steel Plant in operations.

I have a Bachelor of Technology from the Indian Institute of Technology, India, a Master in International Management from the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade, India, and an MBA from Thunderbird School of Global Management, Glendale, AZ. I have been awarded the Chartered Financial Analyst ® and the Certified Financial Planner ™ designations.

I am an Adjunct Professor at Montclair State University where I teach a course that builds a sound foundation in personal finance to help students succeed and lead a rich life while at school and beyond and another course that trains future financial planners. I am a member of the National Board of Directors of NAPFA, the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors and a Trustee of the NAPFA Consumer Education Foundation.

I keep fit by running and practicing Iyengar yoga. I enjoy playing golf, traveling to places of historical importance, reading biographies and good food.
