Tamarind Financial Planning is proud to be a member of the following organizations. We confidently adhere to their standards of professional excellence and integrity.

XY Planning Network

XY Planning Network is the leading organization of fee-only financial advisors who specialize in helping members of Gen X and Gen Y. Our advisors stand out from the rest of the financial planning industry because of the way they put their clients first:

  • They offer virtual services so you can connect with your ideal advisor, regardless of physical location.
  • They provide a fee structure that makes sense for most members of Gen X and Gen Y. Our advisors offer a flat (and affordable) monthly fee just like any other bill. They do not charge commissions.
  • They’re all sworn fiduciaries who uphold a fiduciary oath to always work in their clients’ best interests.

XY Planning Network advisors are also financial-planning focused, meaning all our members offer comprehensive financial planning services for consumers. We go far beyond just investment management.

We’re not your parents’ financial advisors. But we are here to help you live your great life.
