Kelsey Brennan is a fee-only financial advisor at Perrennial Advisors Group located in Westford, MA.
I joined Perennial in 2015 and I obtained my CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification in 2019. My goal is to help our clients feel confident about their financial decisions and to provide peace of mind when it comes to their investments.
Prior to joining Perennial, I attended Bentley University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Managerial Economics. I also completed an integrated double major in Global Perspectives. During that time I interned at two different Investment Advisory Firms. My experience in those positions granted me a first look into the investment world, and they were what drew me to the financial planning profession.
Outside of work I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family & friends. On a normal day you might find me out for a jog, cooking up a new recipe, or enjoying a good book.

At Perennial Advisors Group, our goal is to help clients align their financial lives with what is most important to them.
When we began in the late 90’s, the term “fee-only” was fairly new, as was the financial planning industry itself.
We saw the need to help people without the sales pressure often found in the broker-dealer world, where “advisors” are selling financial products for a commission. Our fee-only philosophy seeks to minimize these conflicts of interest. Our mission is to be our client’s go-to resource for all aspects of their financial lives; to help them identify and reach their goals, and to provide them with a positive investment experience. We take great pride in the fact that the majority of our growth as a firm has been due to referrals from our clients.
Perennial Advisors Group was founded with a desire to build lasting relationships with clients and to truly make a difference in their lives. We strive to provide a personal experience with financial planning advice that is tailored to each individual, couple, or family’s specific situation and life goals.
What is fee-only? Fee-only means our only form of compensation are the fees paid directly to us from clients. We do not sell products, earn commissions, or accept referral fees of any kind. Being fee-only advisors reduces potential conflicts of interest, and allows us to provide objective advice.
What is a fiduciary? As registered investment advisors, we are legally required to act in your best interest. Unlike broker-dealers and some bank representatives who are compensated by selling products, and are not fiduciaries, we always put your interests first when making investment recommendations.
