TONY JURADO, CFP®

FINANCIAL ADVISOR | PRINCIPAL

Tony was captivated by finance at the age of 9 when his father, an economist, gave him 100 shares of his first stock as an introduction to the stock market.

Tony later graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in Psychology and started his career in financial services. His background in finance and psychology give him a unique ability to integrate wealth management expertise with an understanding of the emotional and psychological effects of money. Passionate about learning, Tony continues to research and study financial planning concepts and portfolio management techniques. He believes that while there are time-tested financial principals that must be adhered to, wealth management strategies should remain flexible to adjust to ever-changing tax laws, economic conditions, and demographic trends.
