Michael Tarantino

Michael began his investment career in 2003. Born and raised in Loveland, Colorado, he graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Finance. He provides a foundation for clients across the United States working towards economic independence.

Receiving his CFP®, Michael has shown that he is dedicated to helping individuals, families, and businesses achieve their financial goals. CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professionals are trained to analyze all areas of a person’s financial life. This broad-based approach is what distinguishes financial planners from accountants, insurance agents, stock-brokers or attorneys who may only focus on one area of a person’s finances.

Michael will ask you for detailed information regarding your financial goals, income and savings, and then provide a comprehensive, personalized financial plan which can be used to help you reach your goals. Periodic review of your financial goals is essential to keep your plans on course. The CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional is trained to spot changes in the market and in the status of your portfolio which may affect your goals. www.letsmakeaplan.org
