About Scott Weiss, CFP®, RICP®, AAMS®, APMA®, CMFC®

I help pre-retirees and early retirees who need assistance making their money last in order to secure the retirement lifestyle they envision.

By using a combination of comprehensive financial planning and investment management services I help my clients think through difficult financial tradeoffs and come up with solutions that provide peace of mind.

If you are looking for someone you can trust to explain complicated financial issues in a clear way and want to delegate your investment program to a financial advisor, you’ve come to the right place.

★ WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT

I was previously an art director at Money Magazine and Mutual Funds Magazine where I worked for nearly 12 years helping readers better understand personal finance topics. I am adept at making complex financial issues easy to understand, love solving problems, and skilled at keeping people on task to accomplish their goals.

As a career changer and father of two young children, I know what it takes to care for a family while simultaneously working toward achieving personal goals. I truly enjoy collaborating with my clients and helping them live their best financial life.
