John R. Bubello, Financial Advisor, CFP®, CRPS® 

I specialize in Retirement Planning & Investment Management and I want you to:


Worry less about financial matters


Avoid mistakes so many others have made before you


Have confidence in your plans


Maximize what your money can do for you


Have more free time to enjoy what matters most to you


Don’t let anyone over-complicate it.   I mean it.  Sure, decisions around retirement income planning, investments, social security, 401(k)s, IRAs, taxes, insurance, and estate planning can be complicated.  But, like working with an experienced home builder, professional guidance can keep complicated endeavors from being costly and confusing.  

I rarely talk about myself but I’d like to share where I came from.  The youngest of three, I had a modest upbringing in central Connecticut. Hands on from a young age, my father taught me to fix what’s broken and my mother taught me how to “play well” with others.  My brother, always challenging me to out save him, planted the seed with the gift of a mutual fund at age 15, providing my first exposure to investing.

On the weekend you’ll find me coaching my daughter’s soccer team, biking the Connecticut shoreline, skiing in VT(though out West is best!), or boating to a favorite location – Newport, Block Island, or Long Island.  Non-fiction, self-help, & business improvement books are a favorite and I have penchant for World War II history. I love podcasts, getting rid of unnecessary stuff and organizing the disorganized. I continuously work toward perfection both in my personal and professional life, while quietly recognizing it’s an elusive goal.

Make no assumptions. Instead “Think Again”.
