The Top Austin Financial Advisors for 2022 Have Been Named by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance

Finance & Investing is pleased to announce our Financial Advisors of Austin for 2022. The city of Austin has earned a reputation as a technology hub, most recently attracting billionaire Elon Musk, who built Tesla’s latest gigafactory in the city. Austin is already famous for companies like Dell and Oracle, each of which is headquartered here and scored spots on last year’s Fortune 500 list. Not surprisingly, Austin ranked as the second-fastest growing city in the United States this year with a 4.3% increase in GDP in the first nine months of 2022, surpassed only by San Francisco, according to a report by the American Growth Project, an initiative by UNC’s Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise. As Austin’s economy continues to flourish, this year’s advisors have played an important role in assisting its individuals and families across a variety of financial matters.

Among them, we would like to recognize Monica Beller, Vice President and Financial Consultant with Charles Schwab, who as a former member of the high-net-worth group, uses her experience and knowledge to create modern plans to enable the financial health and habits of her clients. Jonathan Dayton, Senior Vice President, Financial Advisor, and Senior Portfolio Management Director at Morgan Stanley, utilizes a broad range of planning techniques and investment solutions to implement a plan to help grow and preserve his client’s wealth. Also featured is Susan Palombo, a Financial Advisor and Senior Vice President at Baird, who in addition to a career in financial services is making a difference in her community by serving at Impact Austin, an organization that funds nonprofits in Central Texas.

Please join us in celebrating the accomplishments of Finance & Investing’s Financial Advisors of Austin for 2022.
