About James Sweeney, CFP®, CFA

I founded Switchpoint to provide holistic, unbiased advice to working professionals – a group that until recently has been either ignored or taken advantage of by Wall Street.

I have years of experience helping young couples and families reach financial independence by structuring a savings plan that works with their lifestyle and then using my investing expertise as a CFA charterholder to grow their nest egg.

If you want to get the most out of every paycheck and every investment account, but you just don’t seem to have the time or the inclination to make sure it’s done right…

If terms like 401k, IRA, ETF, mutual fund, 1099, APR, stocks and bonds are stressing you out…

If you have ambitious goals, but no idea if you are on track to reach them..

Let’s chat. I can help.
