about your financial advisor
My name is Guillaume Decalf (pronounced gui as in geek)
I started my career in France in 2003, after receiving my MBA. For 7 years, I worked as a consultant specialized in Business Process Management. Since moving to the US in 2010, I worked for a few different tech companies including Amazon and Fitbit.
I also discovered this new world where health insurance, retirement, and education is not managed by the government. I had to teach myself what insurance I need, how much I should save for retirement, how and where to invest. I ended up loving it so much that I decided to deepen my knowledge in financial planning and investment through classes, books, and internet.
A few years ago, I started to have casual conversations with friends and colleagues answering various financial questions, helping them create budgets to save for retirements, pay off their debts, and so on. After successfully investing and saving enough money myself, I decided to run my own financial planning and investing business full-time to help people manage their money.
After I passed my license (Series 65), I became a registered investment advisor in California in 2018.
