Frequentely Asked Questions

How can a financial advisor benefit you?

A financial advisor offers personalized guidance tailored to your financial goals, helping you navigate complex concepts, create a strategic plan, manage investments, and optimize taxes. They provide expertise in retirement planning, risk management, and estate planning, ensuring your financial well-being. By offering informed advice, behavior management, and ongoing monitoring, advisors bring peace of mind and help you make confident financial decisions while saving time and reducing stress.

Are you a fiduciary?

Yes, at Gariano Wealth Management we take the fiduciary standard very seriously. Being a fiduciary means that the financial advisor is legally required to act in the best interests of their clients when offering advice or managing their investments.

Are you currently accepting new clients?

What can I expect from a communication standpoint once I become a client?

Our goal is to have an in-person or virtual review/future planning meeting at least annually, but some prefer semi-annually. In addition, our team will be reaching out quarterly as a “check in” to see if there is anything we can assist with. Lastly, the lines of communication are always wide open. Please call or email at any time to schedule some time to chat about anything on your mind.

How do I get started as a new client?

Feel free to send an email to or call 973-661-5041 to schedule your complimentary intro meeting.
