About Neil Krishnaswamy

At Krishna Wealth Planning, I work mostly with technology and medical professionals, many of whom are nearing retirement and want to know if they can be financially independent. As a former tech professional, I bring a unique process-based approach to managing the complexity of their lives. I opened Krishna Wealth Planning in 2019 to help my clients achieve a delicate balance between living an abundant life now and building a secure foundation for the future.

My clients receive a custom-designed investment portfolio based on empirical research and sound principles. I also ensure their investments are carefully integrated into their financial and retirement income plans. Additionally, I write practical pieces on my firm's blog and seek to educate the broader public through writing and media interactions.

I hold several professional designations, including being a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER professional since 2014, and a Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP) since 2016. I am also an IRS Enrolled Agent (EA), which enables me to provide in-depth tax planning as a part of your plan. I earned a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University.

On a personal note, I live in McKinney, Texas (North Dallas area) with my wife of almost twenty years, Pavi. I enjoy spending time with my daughter Veda, who is 13 years old, and my two-year-old German Shepherd, Mocha. I am a member of the Financial Planning Association (FPA), the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), and the XY Planning Network.

Financial Advice & Consulting

I believe people want to live the best life possible from the resources they have. Care and diligence is needed by the advisor to ensure clients are taking enough precaution to avoid dangerous outcomes but also ensuring that their money is serving them and frugality is not taken to an extreme. For people to take action, they need to clearly see how taking that action will improve their outlook or remove a large risk. By never losing sight on what's important to my clients, I believe that sound advice and creative solutions can emerge.

Portfolio Management

A disciplined trading approach can help you take advantage of the opportunities our markets provide. We use a tolerance band technique to capture competing objectives, such as minimizing trading costs and capturing momentum.

Retirement Planning

As a Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP), we help families establish sustainable spending strategies, build detailed cash flow analyses, and evaluate Social Security and pension decisions. We also help ensure your retirement income plan is tax-efficient.

401K Rollovers

We help our clients work through the decision and implementation process for 401k rollovers. A summary can be found in our blog piece: https://krishnawealth.com/awaking-a-sleeping-lion-what-to-do-with-your-dormant-401k-plan/

Insurance Planning

A great investment plan can get disrupted if proper risk protections are not in place. Among other things, we strive to make your plan robust against emergencies, premature death, illness, disability and long-term care.

Estate Planning & Trusts

An often-overlooked part of a comprehensive plan is how your family and other important individuals and institutions will fair in the event of your death or incapacitation. We help you build and execute an estate plan to improve peace of mind for all involved.

Tax Advice and Services

As an IRS Enrolled Agent (EA), we deeply understand your family's tax situation. We develop detailed projections to help you spot opportunities, avoid surprises, and build long-term strategies. It is not just what we earn or grow. It is what we keep after taxes that impacts our lifestyle. We build savings and withdrawal plans with a focus on both short-term and long-term tax efficiency.

Education Funding and Planning

Rising college costs and student loan burdens make education planning more important now than ever. We help you design funding strategies with the goal of helping your children receive quality educations while keeping your own financial independence on track.

Investment Advice & Management

By understanding your goals, your ability to tolerate risk and what type of productivity you need from your financial plan, we design a custom investment solution for your family.

Risk Management

A great investment plan can get disrupted if proper risk protections are not in place. Among other things, we strive to make your plan robust against emergencies, premature death, illness, disability and long-term care.

Money Management

We use Schwab, one of the nation's largest and most recognized custodians for your investments. We also seek to keep your investment costs minimized by using fund families such as Dimensional Fund Advisors, Vanguard, and iShares (Blackrock).

Financial Planning for Businesses

As a Certified Exit Planner (CEPA®), we work with owners of privately held companies to align their business, personal and financial goals. We build plans to de-risk, grow and eventually exit their businesses.

Financial Planning for Individuals

As a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®), we believe planning should be holistic. Your plan integrates cash flow, tax, investments, retirement, education, debt, risk management, and legacy goals.


We're a fee-only firm and do not directly sell annuity products to our clients. However, we help you evaluate whether annuities or the annuitization of existing investments makes sense for you and your family.

Wealth Management

As a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®), we believe planning should be holistic. Your plan integrates cash flow, tax, investments, retirement, education, debt, risk management, and legacy goals.


Do you have a customer satisfaction or refund policy?

No. However, we do not require our clients to work with us for any pre-determined amount of time. You are always free to terminate services with a reasonable notice period shown in your client agreement.

What are your qualifications? What is your education background?

Please see our bio and work experience sections of the WiserAdvisor profile.

How are you compensated? How will I pay for your services?

We are a fee-only financial planning firm. No commissions. Most of our clients compensate us based on their investment assets under management.

If you are going to manage my account, will you obtain my permission every time you buy or sell something?

No. You would be granting my firm a limited power of attorney to manage your investment accounts on your behalf.

How many clients do you currently manage?

31 Households as of 9/30/2023



WiserAdvisor provides referrals to financial professionals. WiserAdvisor is not a current client of advisor or advisory services. Financial professionals pay cash compensation for these referrals, which creates the incentive for WiserAdvisor to make these referrals, resulting in a conflict of interest.
