Manisha Thakor, CFA®, MBA

I help clients achieve financial confidence by simplifying the complexity in their financial lives.

At MoneyZen Wealth Management we help women and families with $3 million+ in assets achieve a financially calm and confident state that I call "MoneyZen". 

My firm does this in three steps:

(1) We help clients clarify what they need & want in their lives
(2) We raise their consciousness around their current financial realities
(3) We help clients navigate the core decisions that ultimately lead to enlightened financial lives.

The financial tools we use to accomplish this include: 

(1) Cash Flow / Monte Carlo Analysis: Identifying optimal levels of savings, spending, and sustainable withdrawal rates.

(2) Portfolio Management: Investing client assets in a mix of low cost, globally diversified evidenced-based stock and bond funds (as well as individual laddered bond portfolios where appropriate) to support those saving & spending goals.

(3) Financial Planning: Clarifying the additional questions to be asked of other members of your financial team (accountant, estate planner, etc.), other family members, those you are involved with philanthropically, and yourself.

Our end goal it to help each client achieve a state of "MoneyZen," our word for a state of financial enlightenment where you feel reassured and safe about your ability to enjoy both today and be prepared for whatever may come tomorrow. This happens when clients are clearly focused on the intersection of what is important to them and what they can control — and take conscious, mindful financial action steps that reflect this reality.
