As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to help you achieve your life goals. - J. David Principe, CFP®

We are experienced professionals helping other professionals unclutter their financial affairs, and get on with their lives and their careers

J. David Principe is a Farmington, CT fee-only financial planner. SageBroadview Financial Planning 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, J. David Principe is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
With financial planning representing both a humanistic art as well as an analytic science, David Principe strikes the happy medium in his role as SageBroadview’s Senior Advisor. Joining us in 2007, David works closely with many of our clients, building personal relationships during their financial life planning. He also assists with technical support, data and analytical research, and overall practice management.

Before joining us, David’s global experiences took him from two years of teaching English with the Peace Corps in Guinea, West Africa, to retail management with Sears, Roebuck, & Co. in Maine, to seven years as a “jack of all trades” at a North Carolina software company … back to his family home in Vermont, to provide his father with end-of-life care. While serving as executor and trustee for two small family trusts during this period, David saw first-hand the importance of objective financial and estate planning, discovering his own affinity for assisting others facing similar challenges within their families.

After completing the rigorous program and field work required, he obtained his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification in 2010. In addition to his credentials and professional experience, David is a member and proponent of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA). He holds a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Colorado at Boulder. He and his wife Karla live in Connecticut with their two children, Erin and Zack, and their beagles Rosie and Brady.
