Meet Jeff Metz
Jeff Metz is a Senior Financial Planner at RTD Financial. He finds inspiration in helping clients discover what provides real meaning and works empathically to encourage couples to identify their differences and support each other’s aspirations. Jeff is thrilled to have the opportunity to offer a decision-making environment fostering positive and measurable financial progress.
Jeff graduated from Case Western Reserve University with a degree in Chemical Engineering and began his career at Diamond Shamrock in Dallas, TX. While in Dallas, he became interested in using principles of corporate finance in personal financial planning. Jeff moved to the Philadelphia area where he started his own financial planning firm, joining RTD in 2016 as a shareholder.
Jeff found intellectual challenge in obtaining the Master’s in Taxation degree from Villanova Law School, with a special certificate in estate planning. This sparked his desire to humanize the technical aspects of estate distribution planning and make it understandable for clients while partnering effectively with estate and tax attorneys. Jeff has also taken classes in real estate finance and public charities accounting.
Jeff is a member of the Financial Therapy Association and has completed a Mediation Intensive Training program through the Center for Understanding in Conflict. Jeff continues training to use discovery as a means of addressing complex money dynamics between couples and within families.

Jeff reads a broad array of periodicals each month including the New York Times, Financial Times, Scientific American, Popular Science, The Atlantic, Fast Company, Wired, Forbes, Chronicle of Philanthropy, and Biblical Archaeology Review.
Jeff is the author of “Get Client’s IRA Custodian to Follow Recommended Beneficiary Designation” published in Trusts & Estates magazine November 2017.
Jeff has lived in Lower Merion Township outside of Philadelphia with his wife and three children since 1995. Jeff enjoys cycling, swimming and attending Center City and New York theatre productions with his wife Amy.
