About John Krehbiel, CFP®

Your finances are a highly personal puzzle that can be sorted out, solved and optimized for your life. My goal is to help you get comfortable with your financial decisions by giving you smart, honest advice that aligns with your goals and values.

After getting my engineering degree from CalTech and a Masters in Management from M.I.T., I was a financial do-it-yourselfer for over 25 years.
One day on the radio, I heard Dave Ramsey say, “You want a financial advisor who has the heart of a teacher”, and I thought, “That’s me! I have a passion for understanding and explaining finances to people.”

I founded Krehbiel Financial after 15 years in marketing, engineering and executive management at Harris and Intersil, and 11 years teaching physics at West Shore Jr./Sr. High School in Melbourne, FL. Throughout my careers, problem-solving, interpersonal skills, and teaching have been keys to my success in working with people.

I specialize in working with tech professionals and busy couples who realize that their time is better spent focusing on their careers and their families, not the intricacies of financial planning.

When I am not helping people accomplish their goals with their money, I enjoy road biking, bike tourism, traveling, meals with friends, and being a member of Church in the Wild, in Melbourne, FL.

Investments that make me go Hmmmm…

August 31, 2021

I consistently advocate for investing in a diversified set of low cost, index-based mutual funds or ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) that matches the time horizon for when you will need the money and your risk tolerance.  Academic research has shown that this is the most reliable way to achieve good risk-adjusted returns over time.
