About Andrew Novick, CFP®, JD
I founded The Investment Connection in 2014 in order to provide customized financial planning and investment management services to individuals and families regardless of their net worth, income, or investable assets. My focus is on helping young, growing families and others seeking the right financial path to meet their specific goals.
I have worked with college graduates, newlyweds, first-time parents, parents with school-age children, business owners, corporate executives, professionals, as well as divorcees, retirees, and widows. I care about my clients and try to give them the best planning and investment advice possible, along with a high quality experience.
While many firms say they offer customized services, what they actually provide are one-size fits all model portfolios or financial plans from pre-packaged software. My services are truly customized to my clients’ needs. This can include incorporating socially responsible investments or alternatives into client portfolios. Performance of your accounts is also a top priority, and having a strong relationship is critically important to achieving that goal. Building this relationship depends on the give and take of conversation and communication. I am an advisor who listens, solicits your input, shares my thinking, and tests ideas against what you are willing and able to do, so we can develop a lasting and beneficial relationship. If you are too busy with your job, your children, or other responsibilities to address your finances or manage your portfolio, give me a call!
I am a Certified Financial Planner™ professional with a law degree and have been providing fee-only investment management and financial planning services for more than 20 years. Over the years, I’ve been named a NJ Five Star Wealth Manager (Five Star Professional), Best Financial Advisor for Doctors (Medical Economics), and Best Financial Advisor for Dentists (Dental Practice). I am a member of the American Bar Association and long-standing board member of my local Estate Planning Council. Importantly, I am a member of National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), the country’s leading professional association of Fee-Only financial advisors, and am proud to be one of 30 founding members of the XY Planning Network.
My commitment to you means more than any certificate on a wall. I give my clients award-winning financial service through a personal, hands-on approach.
In mid-April I picked my 15-year-old daughter and her friend up from school and took them to Barnes & Noble. The friend found out that I “do stocks” for a living and immediately asked me about crypto. What cryptocurrency should I buy, she asked. I’ll tell you about the advice I gave her in a bit. But not long after I got three calls in one day from my wife’s side of the family—from my sister-in-law (a pharmacist) and my wife’s cousins (both are barbers). They were all asking me about crypto.

When you think back on this spring, you may fondly recall a substantial deposit made to your bank account by the federal government (if you were eligible). Economic Impact Payments were a focal point of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), signed into law in March, and the payments were even larger for parents with dependent children. Keep reading to find out 2 other ARPA provisions that can really benefit parents.
We usually associate spring cleaning with clearing out old items in your house that are unnecessary to make room for the new. This is also an amazing time to take care of your financial house and clean out unnecessary expenses in your budget. Keep reading for a few tips to get started putting some expenses in the trash.
