We know planning the future of your finances can be stressful.
the Financial Chef
That's why David Ortiz, CFP® (CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER), uses his 22 years of experience as a financial advisor and his training from the Culinary Institute of America to make organizing your finances as comfortable as possible: by having each meeting over a home-cooked meal.
Food and finance are two vital pillars of nourishment and stability. At the Financial Chef, we pride ourselves on our personal, empathetic practices by always catering to your culinary and financial tastes. We will work with you to customize a menu ripe with recipes for your financial success.
We focus on solving retirement income problems
whether you are building towards retirement (the accumulation phase) or if you are already in retirement and working to maximize your spendable income (the distribution phase).
We also take lots of care to help you through the 5 years before and after retirement, known as the "retirement danger zone", when your assets are most vulnerable to the markets. It is critical to pause and restrategize during this time (the preservation phase) to ensure that your retirement income is safe and long-lasting.
At the Financial Chef, we prioritize education-- so you always have agency in understanding everything regarding your assets and financial longevity.
We have many resources available on our YouTube channel and other social media!
