About MeMichael Raimondi holds financial wellness at the core of his practice. He believes that harnessing the energy of money to help folks achieve their goals requires not only knowledge of the financial industry, but an understanding of each person's unique wants and needs.
As a former educator and coach, Michael focuses on increasing financial literacy and guiding clients to make informed financial decisions. Michael began his financial services career at New York Life where he earned the Career Life Success Award. When he saw the need to provide clients with truly holistic financial planning, he immediately earned the Series 7 and 65 designations, expanding his practice beyond insurance and annuities to include all aspects of wealth management and advising.
Originally from Southern California, New York City became home for Michael as he pursued a career in theatre and film. Always an entrepreneur, he simultaneously grew with the New York City franchise of the nation's largest supplemental education provider, beginning as a teacher and ending as their VP of Growth & Operations.
Michael recently resided in Seattle, WA for three years where he established a social justice focused non-profit theatre organization. Since returning to the New York City area, he serves on the board of TMI Project as well as volunteering with a local animal rescue.
Michael is a Certified Wellness Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, holds his BFA from Chapman University, and his MFA from The New School. He lives in Jersey City with his partner and his rescue dog, Touché.

A smart move for us.
Neither my wife nor I are particularly skilled at financial matters so we would ask family and friends for advice. It worked out ok but we needed to do better. Our recent retirements and the way the world is going caused us concern for our future (financial) well-being.
Our daughters and their husbands have been working with Michael and have spoken very highly of him. They encouraged us to speak to him ourselves, find out how he could benefit us with his expertise, and consider him as our financial advisor. We had a great conversation with him and became clients soon after. We’re very glad we did.
Michael explained a number of things to us that we needed a better understanding of. He made good, timely, recommendations. He also worked hard to help us out with a concerning situation regarding my wife’s former retirement account that had her very worried and upset. It’s in a safe place now and she’s so relived.
Michael has proven to be accessible, patient, knowledgeable, and wonderful to work with. We feel a lot better about our financial future now than we did before engaging with Michael. We are comfortable and confident in recommending him to anyone seeking a first-rate financial adviser.
Best Financial Planner!
A good friend of mine referred me to Michael, and I’m so glad that she did. I don’t really have a lot of interest in financial planning, and certainly not much experience. I think this combination made me nervous to get started- thankfully, I met Michael who got me on a program! He is great at breaking things down and explaining anything that I don’t know about. I’m feel super confident having Michael manage my money. I’ll be life long client.
We Want Your Voice to be Heard
Wealthtender exists to help people discover the most trusted and authentic professionals and educators in the finance community.
Your honest reviews of the providers featured in our directories help people decide which providers may be best suited to their individual needs.
The majority of people trust reviews as much as personal recommendations, so what you write in your review should reflect your own opinion and experience with the provider.
Tips for Writing a Helpful Review
Be descriptive. Instead of just saying that you like or dislike a provider, share why. What have you enjoyed most or least about your experience with the provider? Have they helped you overcome a difficult financial challenge or strengthened your knowledge about particular money matters? The more details, the better!
Be honest. Your rating and review should reflect your real experience with the provider.
Stay relevant. Help ensure your review is useful to others by avoiding off-topic discussions or personal opinions not relevant to your direct experience with the provider.
Be objective. Try to highlight both positives and negatives in your review, even if your experience skews heavily in one direction.
Make your review easy to read. Reviews should be readable for others. Use proper grammar, avoid excessive capitalization or punctuation, and be sure to check your spelling.
Be yourself. Don’t post as, or pretend to be, someone else, and do not say you’re associated with a person or organization with which you are not.
Be nice. Don’t write abusive, hateful, threatening, or harrassing content. Avoid personal threats, hate speech, obscentities, or inflammatory language.
Respect the privacy of others. Don’t post information that can be used to identity another individual or compromise their privacy.
