Experience

Tom Cymer, a Certified Financial Planner, is the founder and owner of Opulen Financial Group, LLC since 2009. Having double majored in economics and psychology at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Tom is particularly well suited to crunch the numbers but also address the behavioral side of personal finance. Tom joined the nation's largest financial planning firm and achieved numerous awards including 1st Year and 2nd Year Top Achiever, Mercury Award, and the Centurion Award. He later went on to become a mentor and trainer of new recruits as a P1 Certified Advisor Coach while maintaining his own practice. During his tenure there he achieved the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor™ designation.

Tom defines true financial planning as a comprehensive, ongoing approach to managing all areas of his client's financial life that takes into consideration their income, expenses, investments, and debt. He focuses on their short-term and long-term goals such as paying for college or retiring comfortably. He provides management of his client's taxes and financial risks such as disability, death, and—finally—ensuring that they leave a legacy.

Tom brings a comprehensive approach to his planning, which starts with goal development and progresses through every nook and cranny of his client's financial picture. Once a personal plan has been created and implemented, Tom provides regular quarterly review meetings that keeps his clients on track and progressing toward their goals.

Tom is a member of the Financial Services Institute, past president of the Arlington Jaycees, and active with various chambers of commerce in the Metro DC area. Tom is a strong believer in continuing his education and as such has since gone on to obtain a certificate in financial planning from Boston University as well as obtain his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation.
