Value Monitoring Inc.

Value Monitoring Inc (VMI) is a family run financial planning and investment management firm. Dave and Mark Levenson are the company's owners and principal financial advisors. VMI was started by their father in the 80's, and they have worked together as a family since the early 2000s. Over the years, VMI has developed a broad range of financial products and strategies for use in investment portfolio construction, tax planning, and retirement and estate plan designs. Dave is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™. Mark has a series 7 and is licensed to sell insurance, though VMI only consults on insurance products, we do not sell them. VMI works closely with clients to generate customized financial plans and to help find or create the right investment vehicles, insurance products, and other financial tools to fulfill those plans. At VMI we are not money managers who do financial planning, we are financial planners who manage money. Figuring out how to make our clients' lives better, smoother, and easier is at the center of everything we do.
