Understanding Today’s Financial Environment

Welcome, I’m John FitzPatrick a financial professional in Morris Plains, NJ. My philosophy in serving my clients is to embrace all major aspects of their financial lives and as a result provide them comprehensive guidance to assist them in planning their financial futures.

I have found over time that many people are unclear about the difference between financial planning and investment planning.  The major difference is that a disciplined financial planning approach addresses the several areas theat we have found to be critically important to our clients lives - investment planning is just one of these. 

Through my years of experience, I have found that the best way to help those clients who place their trust in me is not only to coordinate these complex and confusing parts of their financial lives, but also to help them on an ongoing basis in implementing and monitoring the solutions that I recommend to them. I can help you address your needs of today and for many years to come. I look forward to working with you through all stages of your life, please call (973) 267-7900.
