The Personal Version
I have been fascinated by all things related to finance since high school, from preparing my siblings tax returns to following the stock market. I would save money from working in the family business and marvel at how bank interest compounded over time.
After graduating from college, I worked for several years in investment accounting, eventually deciding that working directly with clients was my true calling. This led me to become a traditional financial advisor, selling investments for a commission. While this provided valuable experience, I came to realize that the sales-oriented culture did not align with my clients’ best interests.
During a stint at IBM, I launched Hoyt Wealth Management with the goal of helping clients achieve financial peace of mind. When it was time to go full-time with financial planning, I joined a local firm, where I advised clients for 2 ½ years until deciding to go solo.
I live in Westford, Massachusetts with my wife, three teenagers and our dog. When I’m not working, I enjoy playing tennis, running, and learning new things.
