Financial Advisor Websites With Blogs

July 27, 2009

Financial advisor websites are often little more than an online brochure explaining the qualifications and services of the financial planners that run them.  Of course these advisors are busy watching over the personal finances of their clients so it makes sense that they don’t have a lot of extra time to write articles for their website about investing, retirement, cash flow, etc.

However, there are a growing number of financial planners and advisors that are sharing their thoughts on personal finance on their websites, often in the form of a blog.  Not only does it help potential clients get to know a little more about them and their financial philosophies, it’s also useful for the rest of us since they sometimes share some valuable personal finance insights.

I’ve put together a list of the financial advisor blogs that I’ve run across over the past few years online.  When you have a few minutes check out the financial topics they’re discussing on their blogs:

You can also catch up with some of them on Twitter:

  • Cathy Curtis – @curtisfinancial
  • Jeff Rose – @jeffrosecfp
  • Jean Keener – @JeanKeener
  • Jim Blankenship – @BlankenshipFP
  • Michael Zhuang @ @mzhuang
  • Neal Frankle @NealFrankle
  • Neil Vannoy @neilvannoy
  • Rich Feight – @RFeight
  • Rick Kahler – @RickKahler
  • Russ Thornton – @russthornton

If I’ve left anyone off the list, feel free to let me know.  You can contact me or twitter me.

    @Mike thanks for pointing out Neal Frankle’s blog, I added it.

    @Carl, I think Financial Tales is a great concept, teaching through stories can be much more interesting and really resonates with some people.
