We do this first so we can help you a) set clear goals to help you feel confident and motivated to achieve the life of your dreams, b) organize your finances to take the stress out of not knowing what you have, where it is, or what it's worth, making financial planning a lot more fun, and c) create an action plan so you have clear steps to get from where you are right now to where you want to go. Our team of Financial Guides have absolutely zero conflicts of interest, we don't charge you outrageous fees, and we help add clarity to your financial picture. ​And yes, if we're a good fit and you see the value of our advice and how much money we will save you over your lifetime, we would love to work together.

Eric and the team at Abundo are incredible. The monthly fee business model they have set up really builds trust and transparency into the relationship.

I mainly made the intro for my partner, but soon realized I needed his help too 😅. We’ve already happily introduced them to 5 of our friends which is the biggest testament to good service. I wish I found these people years ago! Thanks, Eric. Looking forward to working with you for years to come.

My wife and I have been Abundo clients for a few months now. Andrew is our advisor and he is professional and a joy to work with. Abundo’s subscription based flat fees are a tremendous value, especially compared to a traditional 1% AUM advisor(rip off)! We are so grateful we discovered this company.

We’ve worked with the Abundo team since the company’s founding and feel 100% confident that these folks are passionate about our financial journey. We’ve got the tools and communication we need to manage our money well and work smarter, not just harder. The apps, tailored investment strategy, and regular check ins feel like financial planning as it should be.

Abundo Wealth has been our financial planner over a year. They have helped us with every financial question possible. They are a super cool group of people who legitimately want you to succeed. But one of the coolest things as an avid traveler is that they will also make sure you are getting the most perks from your flight deals, credit card points, and anything that involves traveling expenses. They don’t only answer your questions whenever you reach out to them. They proactively inform you about changes, rates, etc as they see fit with your financial goals and plans. AND they have a reasonable monthly rate with no hidden fees. They deserve all the stars!

I was never very involved in our finance, my wife was. Now, with the coaching and simplifications from Eric and Nathan, I have gained a sense of understanding and control. I have been more invested and actually excited about our investments. The guidance we received from Eric’s team has helped tremendously in the last 3 or 4 years. I feel I can trust the advice as being genuine because there aren’t ulterior motives or sale behind it. Eric’s team advice and tools are all there to help, even protect my investments down to the details. It is a great place to be and a great partnership to have. One that I am very grateful for.

An innovative approach

✅ Wealthtender Certified Advisor Review™
Rated 5 out of 5
February 9, 2022

Andrew and Eric take an innovative approach to charging for their services. The flat rate charge is much less expensive than other financial planners we checked – and good luck actually getting a straight answer on charges from other financial planners. Another thing I really like is the fact that you don’t “shove all your chips” to their firm. They help guide you in your current investments. The tools they provide are very interactive and provides a clear picture of your financial future. You can be as “hands on” as you choose to be with these tools. I’ve been working with them for a little over a year and they’ve provided wise financial advice and I feel they take a personal interest in my future.

Eric, Andrew and the Abundo Team are amazing. They did an amazing job first determining my goals, creating a plan to help me manage some big time financial questions, guided me through some other questions and challenges and overall are easy to work with. Their online work portal for managing is sweet and they do a great job of empowering you to look at your goals holistically or in detail.

Abundo changed the way I understood and managed my finances, in a very significant way. I had been with many of the big shops and had to put so much trust in them(and $) because I was confused with the guidance and direction they provided. Eric and his team break things down to a point that you really feel in charge of your finances and future. But they also set tough(and achievable) goals that keep you on track.

This team is down to earth, brilliant in what they do, very accesible and a game changer in this industry. HIGHLY recommend

Top-notch firm and amazing group of people at Abundo. What I like about them?

1. Knowledgeable

2. Responsive

3. They always come to the meetings prepared

4. I am not just a client to them. They really do know me

5. They take their fiduciary duty seriously

6. Above and beyond effort. When my mother-in-law needed help, Andrew stayed on the phone with her, talking to the different financial institutions until the issue was resolved.

Glad to have such a trusted partner as part of my financial journey.

I cannot say enough good things about Eric and his team; I am so glad I found Abundo when I did! I was able to get my financial goals and priorities straightened out and work on executing the plan we set at the beginning. The routine touch bases has been helpful and the team is responsive when I have questions or items I need to discuss outside of our routine review meetings. I highly recommend Abundo Wealth to anyone who is looking for a team who cares about you, your financial goals, and living your best life – anyone can do it if you have the right team beside you!

Eric and Ethan helped us create long-term goals (which aligned with our values) and have given us accountability and practical wisdom to be on a solid path to reach these goals. We are so grateful that family introduced us to the Abundo team. Highly recommend!

Eric, Andrew and Ethan are PHENOMENAL – so responsive. So helpful. So personable. So smart. The amount of money they have already helped us save in the 9 or so months we’ve been with them is insane – looking forward to many more savings and solid financial decisions in the years to come! I wouldn’t recommend ANYONE ELSE for financial guidance!!!

To borrow a phrase, Abundo is “simply the best”! If you want personal attention from people who actually care about you and your finances, and who care about charging a reasonable rate for the work they do, then there’s no reason to look elsewhere! Their subscription system is far more affordable than the percentage method that so many large banks/financial planners use. Call off the search, you’ve found what you’re looking for!

Eric is available and willing to assist with both large financial decisions and every-day, small decisions alike. Eric is exceptionally knowledgeable, yet able to simplify complex financial concepts. He makes the process user-friendly and convenient for very busy clients. Highest recommendation for Abundo Wealth!

Abundo crushes it!!! If you are using any other company for your financial advice you definitely need to chat with the Abundo crew ASAP!! Number one, they are turning the financial services industry upside down! Number two, they have fair and transparent fees unlike other advisors that charge you on a percentage of your assets which is NOT cool. the bottom line is that Abundo totally cares about their clients and are a true fiduciary at a fair fee! Do yourself a favor and reach out to them ASAP to learn more!
