AAFCPAs Wealth Management Invests in Team and Processes in 2016

AAFCPAs Wealth Management is pleased to share the investments we have made in our team and processes in 2016, designed to enhance your client experience:

AAFCPAs Wealth Management Team

  • Carmen Grinkis, PhD, CLTC, CFP® has joined our team as a Senior Wealth Advisor and Director of Wealth Management.  Carmen is a licensed investment adviser, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®), and holds a Certification in Long-Term Care (CLTC).  In addition, Carmen has a PhD in Clinical Psychology and fifteen years’ experience as a practicing psychologist.  This perspective will benefit our clients because so much of financial planning is life planning.
  • Jonathan Bloom, CFP® joined our team as a Wealth Advisor.  Jonathan is a licensed investment adviser, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®), and holds Life & Health Insurance licenses in MA.  He joined AAFCPAs Wealth Management after 10 years in financial services because of the firm’s reputation for honest, timely and objective financial advice.  He believes that honest investment advice must be selfless, comprehensive, thoughtfully prepared, and fully customized.
  • Cheryl Melendy joined the team as Executive Assistant & Client Support Specialist.  She will assist in scheduling, outreach and communications and we feel fortunate to have her join our Wealth Management team.
  • This year, we moved to a more formalized team approach to client service, ensuring you have access to a broad talent base and multiple team members familiar with your life goals and investments. There will be new names and faces in your corner to give you the best support and client experience possible.
  • We continue to invest in the industry’s leading technologies to positively influence the experience we offer to our clients.  You may be familiar with MorningStar, which is a secure portal available to you to access your Quarterly Reports and aggregated investment performance information. In 2016, we invested in eMoney, which features a secure electronic document storage vault, and an intuitive organizer with a consolidated view into all of your accounts giving you a complete financial picture, updated in real-time.

AAFCPAs Wealth Management is firmly dedicated to servicing our clients and enhancing your financial wellbeing. Ultimately, we believe it is our 1) diversity of talent from our team, 2) four decades of tax & estate planning expertise, 3) independence, 4) ethics, and 5) personalization for each client that makes us an exceptional value wealth management solution.

About the Author

Joel Aronson, CPA, PFS
At the end of 2019, Joel Aronson retired from AAFCPAs after a distinguished 45-year career as Partner, Wealth Advisor, & Founder of AAFCPAs Wealth Management. Joel is nationally recognized for the impact of his work with nonprofit organizations. Throughout his career, Joel inspired many nonprofits to act and operate like for-profits. “I wish the term ‘nonprofit’ never came into existence,” said Joel. “I prefer the term ‘tax-exempt organization’ and believe it would influence the mind-set of management teams to expect and insist on driving profitable programs.” Joel co-developed and taught highly acclaimed courses in budget and financial management systems and participated in industry-wide forums as a highly-coveted trainer, lecturer and advisor. He will continue to contribute his financial management expertise as a Board member and advisor for organizations whose missions inspire him.
