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.
Abundant Advisors was founded in 2020 by Leo Marte. We strive to make wealth more than money by combining biblical wisdom with the best of the financial planning profession. We exist to empower our clients to live abundantly. To accomplish this, we offer ongoing comprehensive financial planning and investment management services. As a fee-only registered investment advisory (RIA) firm, we are only compensated by our clients directly and never through commissions. We are legally bound to act in our clients' best interests as fiduciaries at all times.
We are located north of the City of Charlotte, North Carolina, in Huntersville, serving clients locally and across the country virtually. We are not bounded by geography and use the latest videoconferencing, messaging, and planning technologies to help clients regardless of location. We work with them to identify opportunities, manage risk, minimize taxes, optimize spending, and successfully grow and transfer wealth.
