We begin by listening to your priorities and aspirations. Then, we build an investment strategy to achieve your goals. We limit your risk, favor low cost solutions, and consider taxes in managing your account. Your questions are always welcome and answered in clear and uncomplicated language.

As a registered investment adviser (RIA) and a fiduciary, Fintegrity only works in your best interest and does not accept commissions from brokerage firms, banks, insurance companies or anyone else. Although we manage your investments, we never take possession of them. Your assets are always held in your name by a leading independent custodian who will issue statements confirming your assets and investment activity.

Fintegrity was founded and is managed by Jeffrey Barnett. His career spans 30 years developing major investment experience. Prior to forming Fintegrity, Jeffrey spent a decade at TIAA, the trillion-dollar asset manager, where he led the product management of a $40 billion portfolio. Also, he directed strategy and product management at J.P. Morgan and M&T Bank.

Mr. Barnett graduated Harvard Business School with a master’s degree in Business Administration and earned a bachelor’s degree, summa cum laude, at the University at Albany.

Jeffrey feels his personal and business life intercede. As a result, he volunteers at nonprofits, such as Ariva, an organization (founded 2003) in New York City that helps low income South Bronx residents file their income taxes and provides financial counseling. Barnett helped Ariva grow by increasing community awareness and streamlining operations.
