Meet The Team
Levi Sanchez, CFP®, CPWA®, BFA™
Founder, Financial Planner
Levi is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER®, CERTIFIED PRIVATE WEALTH ADVISOR® and BEHAVIORAL FINANCIAL ADVISOR™ professional.
CFP® professionals are held to strict ethical standards to ensure financial planning recommendations are in your best interest. What’s more, a CFP® professional must acquire several years of experience related to delivering financial planning services to clients and pass the comprehensive CFP® Certification Exam before they can use the CFP® designation.
The CPWA® certification is an advanced professional education and certification for advisors who provide the breadth of specialized skills required to meet the needs of high-net-worth clients. This certification requires advisors to develop advanced knowledge and skills to address the wide range of complex issues faced by wealthy individuals and families, including portfolio strategies, wealth transfer, family dynamics, risk management, asset protection, closely-held business ownership, charitable giving, estate planning, retirement planning, and more. Fewer than 1% of financial advisors have achieved the CPWA® certification.

Yes, we’re able to work with anyone inside the United States. We use technology and virtual meeting software to help us accomplish working with people across the nation.
Most people will hire a CPA for tax advice, an attorney for legal advice, and a doctor for health advice. A financial planner is no different. We’re professionals who help our clients manage the emotional aspects of investing, which through numerous studies has shown to be one of the most detrimental problems to investors’ long-term success.
Beyond helping improve behaviors around saving, investing, and spending for our clients, we also take a comprehensive look at your finances. Helping you maximize your financial decisions and collaborating on a financial plan that considers short-term and long-term goals.
Millennial Wealth believes in passive investment management. Young professionals all have time on their side to take full advantage of the power of compounding.
We believe in keeping investment costs low, tax efficiency, understanding mindsets around risk, and rebalancing portfolios when appropriate. We focus on maintaining oversight of what we as investors can actually control (not the market!), such as savings, spending, investing, taking advantage of tax-advantaged accounts, maximizing employee benefits, and ensuring your family is taken care of in the case of unfortunate events.
Warren Buffett said it best, “successful investing takes time, discipline and patience. No matter how great the talent or effort, some things just take time”.

Yes! We designed our fee structure and service model to allow us to work primarily with younger professionals who may or may not have the assets that traditional advisory firms require in order to work with them.
