Brian S. Dumont, EdM
Founder, Principal of Dumont Wealth
Brian comes from a college background in both the liberal arts (B.A., Psychology, Saint Anselm College), and the teaching arts (Ed.M., Master in Education, Boston University). As a result, his approach to working with families is both from the psychological, “how to help us make better financial decisions” and the educational, “here’s how all the pieces of your economic life work together”. In short, Brian’s style is a little like educational therapy for your money.
Brian is a Circle of Wealth Master Mentor, which is a niche within the financial planning world that operates from the assumption that putting clients in control of their money is a central strategy for financial success. He is also a financial and estate planner, wealth advisor, wealth transfer specialist, college planner and resident of New York City. He is licensed in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, Florida, Maryland and Texas for securities, life, accident and health. Currently, he is the private financial and estate planner for a highly select group of approximately fifty families.

What does the initial consultation involve?
The purpose of the initial consultation is typically twofold: first, to talk about your current situation, including your goals and beliefs; second, to talk about what we believe and how we work. At the conclusion of this, you and your advisor can usually decide if there is a match and if further consultations are worthwhile.
What is the cost of the initial consultation?
Generally, there is no fee charged for the initial consultation, unless specifically agreed to beforehand by both the advisor and client. In short, there is no obligation at the initial consultation, as it is intended as an exchange of information between advisor and client.
What do I need to bring to the initial consultation?
At the initial consultation, no documentation is required, as generally speaking, work on your “numbers” will not begin until the second meeting, unless agreed to beforehand by the advisor and client. If, however, you would like to have documents available for your reference (not for the advisor to collect), a list of documents can be found on the LAST page of the Dumont Wealth Confidential Questionnaire. Also, if at making the appointment it is decided that you will likely begin looking at your numbers, the advisor will forward the Dumont Wealth Confidential Questionnaire to you with instructions on what is required.
How can I make, change or cancel a meeting?
It is suggested that to make an initial appointment, please call Dumont Financial directly. By calling, you and an advisor will be able to clarify expectations and discuss potential dates. Once a time is chosen, an email confirmation and/or Calendar invitation will be sent. Please “Accept” the meeting so it is officially confirmed on both calendars. To change or cancel, please use the Calendar invitation. Our policy is a 48 hour change/cancellation notice (except for emergencies) to give you and the advisor time to reschedule. Thanks for your assistance with this policy.
Is there a list of Dumont Wealth clients that I could speak with?
If you are looking for firsthand experience from a Dumont Wealth client on how we have helped them achieve financial peace of mind through comprehensive planning and full disclosure, please request a referral from your advisor. Referrals are available on an individual requested basis.
Where is the office located?
The office is located at One Rockefeller Plaza, 11th Floor. Please bring a picture ID with you for the security desk.
