Brian Dumont

Brian S Dumont, EdM

Managing Partner, Dumont Financial, LLC

Brian S. Dumont, EdM, is the Managing Partner of Dumont Financial, LLC, and has been in financial services since 2004. It is his passion to teach his clients how their money works and what their options are so that together they can construct an effective, highly customized financial strategy for themselves and their families.

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.

One of Brian’s core beliefs about money is that clients have more to gain by preventing losses than by simply trying to chase the highest rate of return. This is a very conservative approach to wealth management that helps families build a foundation for their financial future. At the same time, it positions them with the ability to capitalize on opportunities as they come about.

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.

Kevin has a background in the liberal arts (Bachelor of Science, University of New England), as well as in the management of a small business (Window World), and 25 years of study as a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do.

As a Certified Bank on Yourself Advisor, Kevin teaches his clients about alternative ways to pay for major capital purchases using the Bank on Yourself method. He also helps clients understand the discipline and technical expertise it takes when developing a successful protection program.

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 Financial 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 Financial 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 Financial clients that I could speak with?

If you are looking for firsthand experience from a Dumont Financial 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.

What safeguards are in place at Dumont Financial to protect my investments from Madoff-type and other scams?

First, Dumont Financial uses only registered investment products. This means that third party regulatory agencies (FINRA, SIPC and the MSRB) supervise all products where your money is placed through Dumont Financial.

In addition, Cambridge Investment Research is a member of FINRA and SIPC. For more information on how FINRA, SIPC and the MSRB protect you as an investor, please see their websites

How can I view my account online?

First, contact your advisor to confirm that your account is viewable online and where it is best to be viewed. In general, your account can be viewed as follows:

Brokerage accounts, directly held accounts and most annuities – first, contact your advisor and confirm that your account is active. Once it is, to view your account online, contact Dumont Financial for the temporary password and then go to www.cirstatements.com. Fill out the information as required and submit your request. As an added layer of protection for you, WEBSITE ACCESS APPROVAL IS NOT AUTOMATED. To complete the approval, send an email/call your advisor, who will then be able to approve your request. If you have any difficulties, please contact someone at Dumont Financial.

Insurance accounts including life, disability, long term care and health – some carriers allow you to view your account live. Many do not. Please contact your advisor for your specific policy viewing options.
