About Tyler Reeves, CFP®
Hi, I’m Tyler Reeves, CFP® and I’m the founder of Plimsoll Financial Planning.
As the son of two educators, it’s always been my preference to have things explained, or taught, instead of sold to me. It was that mentality that led me to create Plimsoll Financial Planning as a fee-only firm dedicated to serving clients who want to take control of their financial lives.
I began my career in the financial services industry in 2009 immediately following the Great Recession. Not exactly the most booming time to enter this profession. Looking back though, I think I learned a lot about the industry that I would have missed if not for those turbulent times. Probably the most valuable lesson was the first hand experience of seeing how human emotion and behavior can have a far greater impact on financial planning than investment returns and asset allocation.
I started Plimsoll because I’m passionate about helping people make better financial decisions. In order to do that, we take a unique, collaborative approach to wealth management that places the client’s best interest directly at the center of each decision.
On a personal note, my wife, Laura, and I live in Birmingham, Alabama, with our family of three rescue pets. In our spare time, we love to travel, cook, and stay outside as much as possible.
Jason Zweig of the The Wall Street Journal recently published a list of 19 questions that you should ask any financial planner before you hire them. I answered all of his questions in this blog post.
