Leo began his career in the financial services industry in 2008. Before founding Abundant Advisors, he was an Advisor Manager in the high net worth advice practice at Vanguard. Leo holds an MBA in Strategic Management and International Business from Villanova University and a B.A. in Computer Science from Gettysburg College. He is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER. Leo often saw inadequate communication, fear of spending, and poorly executed wealth transfers become obstacles for clients to enjoy their life to the fullest. He was motivated to start Abundant Advisors to combine two of his main passions in life - his faith and sound financial advice. He wanted to offer advice infused with biblical wisdom to help clients change their family tree. Leo is an avid reader of news, history, personal finance, science, and the Bible in his free time. He enjoys spending time with his wife and kids. They live in Huntersville, NC, and are actively involved in their local church.

Our methods are focused on achieving your goals because that's the only benchmark that matters.

About Blue Financial

We work for our CLIENTS not a company. Blue Financial is built upon developing a stable, independent retirement for you. It's not just our job--it's our passion. Putting clients first and setting ourselves apart from industry norms is our number one priority. We take a look at one aspect most advisors rarely do: taxes. At Blue, we take a distinctly unique approach to investment management and financial planning centered on strategies for creating potentially tax-free investments and efficient distribution of income in retirement. This specialized focus puts us in the position to work with and advise individuals, even those who already have an advisor without affecting their current relationship. If a majority of your money is in retirement plans like 401(k)s or IRAs then your income at retirement is taxable. Our attention to critical tax strategies helps our clients prepare to have tax free assets at retirement thus further protecting their life's work and savings. Our methods are focused on achieving your goals because that's the only benchmark that matters!
