Thomas Duffy is a Member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors

The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is a leading professional association of Fee-Only financial advisors - highly trained professionals who are committed to working in the best interests of those they serve.

NAPFA members live by three important values:

  • To be the beacon for independent, objective financial advice for individuals and families.
  • To be the champion of financial services delivered in the public interest.
  • To be the standard bearer for the emerging profession of financial planning

Because of the unpredictability of life and the complexity of financial markets, it is essential to work with a financial advisor who can help you to achieve your life goals.

However, you will want to select someone who is exceptional, someone who will go beyond the traditional client/advisor relationship and seek to truly understand your needs, concerns, and aspirations.

As you focus on defining and designing your unique version of “quality of life,” it will be important for you to choose a financial professional who is “life-centered.” That means he or she is dedicated to understanding your unique history, circumstances, life transitions, values, and priorities in order to make the most appropriate financial planning recommendations.

Fortunately, there is a small, but growing cadre of advisors who are turning to this more holistic approach to client services. These forward thinking professionals are pioneers in a trend of integrating financial planning and life planning.

Rather than the traditional financial conversation focused on “more is better,” these unconventional financial planners will demonstrate a genuine interest in helping you to achieve your life goals.
Thomas J Duffy, CFP is one of these advisors where you, your family, your story is vastly more important than your money.
