Tony’s understanding of the importance of a comprehensive approach to financial planning was further developed when his father passed away and he witnessed and assisted his own family trying to put the pieces together. His personal experiences fueled his passion, sincerity, and desire to help people achieve their life and legacy goals. This, coupled with his professional experience, culminated into Tony establishing his own Wealth Management and Financial Planning firm, Fidato Wealth.
Tony has met the rigorous experience, education, and ethical requirements to have earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER ™ designation. He is also widely recognized in wealth management and has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, Barron’s, WealthManagement.com, Financial Advisor Magazine, AARP, as well as featured on Fox 8’s “New Day Cleveland” and other national and local venues.
One of Tony’s cornerstone beliefs is that education provides people with an opportunity to make more informed decisions which can then lead to improved financial well-being. He teaches a Retirement Planning class for a local college and hosts a podcast entitled “Wealth and Life”, which covers the latest in comprehensive retirement planning, planning for business owners and family wealth management. Also, Tony has been asked to speak at employee and staff development events at local companies and conducts executive benefit education for corporations.
In his spare time, Tony enjoys outdoor activities such as golf, running and bicycling. He enjoys listening to podcasts and is an avid reader. However, Tony’s biggest joy comes from spending time with his family. Tony, his wife Amy, and their son Anthony enjoy traveling together, outdoor hobbies and being close to family and friends in Northeastern Ohio.
