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.
The IRS is giving Americans an extra three months to file their taxes for year 2019 as the country largely remains on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. Instead of an April 15th due date, tax returns are now due on July 15th. Taxpayers that owe money can also defer federal tax payments, interest free and penalty free until July 15. Additionally, the deadline for making contributions to IRAs and Health Savings Accounts was similarly extended to July 15th. Note that you can still request an automatic extension to file your tax return to October 15th, but the extension does change the deadline to pay any taxes or make IRA or HSA contributions.
COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc on the world’s peoples and economies. In the United States, as businesses shut down or pare back, millions of workers have already been laid off, leaving many to wonder how they’ll pay their bills. The federal government just enacted the biggest economic rescue package in modern American history. The package grants households relief in the form of stimulus checks sent directly to most Americans, expanded unemployment benefits, paid sick leave, temporary student debt relief and more.
