Welcome to Tenon Financial

We help you plan and live your best possible retirement

We're a financial advisory firm that focuses on TERP...Tax-Efficient Retirement Planning

We believe your retirement should be filled with the freedom to spend your time how you choose without having to worry about your sources of income, investments or taxes. We spend our time focusing on those things so you don't have to!

As seen in:

What we do

We provide tax-conscious retirement planning and investment management

How we do it

We tailor our services to your retirement planning needs by providing three different service offerings:

  1. Creation of a comprehensive retirement-focused financial plan
  2. Ongoing retirement financial planning & investment management
  3. Hourly advice for your specific retirement planning areas of interest 

Why we're different

We proudly differentiate ourselves from typical financial advisors:

We specialize in retirement planning

A lot of advisors try to be all things to all people - we don't. Our expertise is specifically in helping you make the most of your finances before and during retirement

We're independent

We're a standalone company not affiliated with any brokerages, insurance companies or banks. This allows us to offer truly comprehensive advice without restriction or pressure to make certain recommendations

Our fees are clear and fair

We're "fee-only," which means we don't sell products for commission and don't receive any form of compensation from anyone other than you. For our ongoing planning & investment management service, we charge a flat annual fee that is based on the complexity of your financial life...our fee is not a percentage of your investable assets

We're fiduciaries

Unlike many advisors or financial salespeople, we're regulated solely as fiduciaries.  This means we're ALWAYS required to act in YOUR best interest

We understand Social Security

We have in-depth knowledge of how to maximize Social Security benefits, which are likely to be a critical part of the foundation of your retirement

We do tax planning

Most advisors know only the basics of taxation and many shy away from giving tax advice. We incorporate careful tax minimization planning into all aspects of our services. We can also coordinate the preparation and filing of your tax returns through Tenon Tax Preparation, a separate company that's under common ownership with Tenon Financial

We're credentialed

In addition to having relevant education, professional and academic experience, our founder and planner, Andy Panko, has obtained a combination of industry designations focused on tax-efficient retirement planning:

  • RICP® - Retirement Income Certified Professional®
  • EA - IRS Enrolled Agent

We can work virtually

Our physical presence is in New Jersey but we can provide our full suite of services virtually thanks to our use of best-in-class systems and software
