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

Jan Pevzner is a New York, NY fee-only financial planner. Gotham Block, LLC provides comprehensive and objective financial planning, tax planning and investment advice to help busy professionals, entrepreneurs, corporate executives and novice investors organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Jan Pevzner is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

Jan Pevzner is a fee only financial advisor and Principal at Gotham Block, LLC located in New York, NY.

My career began in 1995 on Salomon Brothers’ trading floor. While at Salomon, and later Citi, I worked as an equity derivatives trader and a quant witnessing the global structured products market’s early years.

After seven fascinating years at Salomon and a quick stint at a prop-trading firm launched by colleagues, I joined Deutsche Bank. At Deutsche, I headed an equity derivatives desk overseeing options market-making on the International Stock Exchange, now Nasdaq ISE, and participated in expanding the US electronic options markets.

Around 2006, Deutsche withdrew from the ISE, and I decided to focus on systematic trading and founded Greenbox Capital. My work at Greenbox led to a greater understanding of quantitative approaches to investment management and behavioral finance.

Today, I’m fortunate to work with experts in many fields – finance, law, taxation, psychology, and technology. My mission at Gotham Block is to help our clients manage financial uncertainty and to deliver customized investment strategies to individual and institutional investors.

I hold a double-major BS in Mathematics and Computer Science from University at Buffalo, an MS in Scientific Computing from UB, and a certificate in Financial Planning from NYU. I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, and an Enrolled Agent admitted to represent clients before the IRS.
