What Differentiates Nielsen Financial Management

What differentiates me (John Nielsen) is the fact that I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®), which not only means I adhere to a higher standard, but also that I have made a commitment – and taken the time to achieve my industry's most coveted professional certification. I am firmly committed to the ethics and values of the higher fiduciary standard. This, I believe, goes hand in hand with my independence. I take pride in the fact that I am an independent financial advisor.

My personality differentiates me as well. You might say I am both type A and an introvert. This particular combination offers my clients a distinct advantage.

Type A: I'm very structured. I like to be organized, and complete tasks accordingly. I get things done in a timely fashion. I'm a driver.

Introvert: I won't hog the spotlight. I won't dominate a conversation. I give more attention to my clients than I take from them. I participate.

As a result, I'm a good listener, and empathetic to my clients' needs – and I always follow through with my services.

My core beliefs can be summed up as follows:

Retain integrity

Uphold morality

Promote honesty

Support fairness

Maintain professionalism

Through retaining my services, you can rest assured that I am putting your best interests ahead of my own, whether I'm managing your money, or providing you with comprehensive financial advice. As Alan Greenspan (former Chairman of the Federal Reserve) once said: “I have found no greater satisfaction than achieving success through honest dealing and strict adherence to the view that, for you to gain, those you deal with should gain as well.”
