Andrew M. Brown, CFP ®

The Informal Version

I have five children, whom I love, and some of the time make me want to use a cattle prod.  My wife, Amy, and I have been married for 25 years.  We are high school sweethearts, and I’ve always said I would rather be lucky than good because I was definitely lucky with her.  With four of our five children playing soccer, most of our free time is spent watching them play or as their personal soccer taxi.  I also enjoy playing the game myself.  My sense of humor has occasionally made for some interesting moments, especially for my children.

My journey into financial planning began when I lost my father, Grant Brown, in 1994.  He had been remarried for 13 months when he crashed his plane.  He didn’t have a will, had recently sold his business and changed his residence to Florida.  Thus began a rather unconventional education in estate planning (or lack there of), taxation, insurance and how Wall Street delivers investment advice.   The costs of not having proper financial planning was substantial, not to mention the issues it created.

I love what I do because I enjoy solving problems and partnering with clients as their quarterback, so to speak.  Because no two clients are alike and financial planning involves so many moving parts, I’m constantly learning.  Many of my clients are entreprenuers who come with a different set of challenges.  As you can imagine, I’m a bit of a stickler for estate planning.
