(323) 942-9881

Fee-Only Financial Planner located in Greater Los Angeles Area, CA and serving clients across the country via virtual meeting.

Jiyao Xu is a fee-only financial planner. X and Y Advisors, Inc. 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, Jiyao Xu is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

Jiyao Xu is a fee-only financial planner. He established X and Y Advisors, Inc. to make high-quality financial planning services available and affordable to young Chinese professionals living in the United States. 

After one year of experience with KPMG China, Jiyao realized that corporate finance is not his interest. In 2012, he came to Los Angeles to join his beloved wife, Vivianna, and study Personal Financial Planning. While taking different courses at UCLA, Jiyao managed to pass the CFP® exam and all three levels of CFA programs. He also went through the real estate broker education program and then worked for a local wealth management firm for several years. With what he has gone through, he understands the needs and concern of the young professionals living in the U.S. 

From his professional experience serving high-net-worth individuals, Jiyao realizes that there are so many financial planning strategies that could be applied and may even create relatively more value to young professionals. Therefore, he decided to establish X and Y Advisors, Inc. and share his knowledge to help more people and families.
