About Peter J. Passalacqua, CFP
Peter has over 25 years of financial planning experience. After six years working as a personal advisor for one of the largest financial firms in the world, Peter became frustrated with the influence of corporate sales pressure on the advisory process. Peter left his employer and created Frontier Financial Planning & Capital Management, Inc. so that he could be free to make financial recommendations based solely on the clients’ needs, rather than his employer demands. Frontier’s recommendations are completely free from the influence of corporate sales quotas and pressure.
Peter brings to his own private firm extensive experience working with a broad base of customers with diverse financial goals. Whatever the financial circumstances of your life, Peter has the experience, resources, and knowledge to help you plan your journey.
Peter’s commitment to excellence led him to attain his CFP (Certified Financial Professional) designation. To earn his CFP credentials, Peter was required to pass rigorous testing requirements covering retirement, investments, insurance, and estate planning. CFP professionals must also pledge to abide by the CFP Board of Ethics. Peter’s designation is your assurance that you are dealing with a committed, knowledgeable professional. He also holds a certificate in financial planning from the College of Financial Planning in Denver, Colorado. In addition, Peter is licensed in Insurance and Real-Estate. He is also a member of The National Association of Christian Financial Consultants (NACFC).
Peter’s undergraduate work was completed at Rutgers College, New Brunswick, New Jersey, where he earned a Bachelors of Science degree from the School of Business. Peter resides in Hillsborough, NJ with his wife and three children. He is very active in his local community and is a current member and past-president of the Hillsborough Rotary Club.
