68: The Ultimate Guide to Finding a Financial Advisor with Matt Kweller (Part 1 of 2‪)‬ Artistic Finance

    • Performing Arts

CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional Matt Kweller discusses what a financial planner is and does, how to determine if and when you should enlist one, and what you can do to prepare yourself for meeting with an advisor. We also discuss what a financial plan is, as well as what the fees and minimums are to work with a planner long term or meeting with them one time to create a custom financial plan. Part 1 of 2.


 


The goal with this two-part series is to create the best resource available for anyone wondering if they should get a financial planner. This can be a guide you can refer back to time and time again. I’ve already re-listened to this interview twice and I’ll likely refer back to it many times.


 


Matt and I chatted for over two hours. Instead of having one long two-hour episode, I decided to make it a two-part series.


 


Matt Kweller is a Senior Private Client Advisor at People’s United Advisors, formerly Gerstein Fisher in Midtown Manhattan. After graduating Penn State University, he spent four years at Vanguard working to launch their hybrid digital advice solution, Personal Advisor Services. Matt is an active volunteer with Family Reach, providing pro bono financial planning services to Cancer Patients and a member of the Financial Planning Association of New York metro chapter.
