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 member of the American Bar Association and long-standing board member of my local Estate Planning Council.

The dreaded “Kiddie Tax” is undergoing some changes in 2018, both good and bad. For those familiar with the Kiddie Tax, rates on dependent’s investment income will no longer be subject to the parent’s marginal tax rate. For some this is welcomed news and for others there is a catch. This article will breakdown the Kiddie Tax changes for 2017 and how exactly it will impact taxpayers in 2018 and beyond …2025 if the changes aren’t extended.

Have you ever wondered what happens to your email account when you die? What about your Facebook account? Typically, access to digital accounts - email accounts, blogs, social media accounts, virtual currency, online financial accounts, websites, etc. - is denied. Before his term expired, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed into law the Uniform Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets Act ("Act") that addresses who can manage a person’s digital assets when they die or become legally incapacitated and should definitely help.
