About Me

Connolly Financial Advisors, LLC Brochure September 2017

I’m Tom Connolly, founder of Connolly Financial Advisors.

I possess a rich and diverse background that includes 30 years of personal investing experience. By utilizing years of research and a disciplined money mangement approach I serve as an Investment Adviser for a select group of clients.  My company, Connolly Financial Advisors, LLC, is registered through the Securities & Exchange Commission with New York State as a Registered Investment Advisory firm.  I have also been a senior financial executive at Sony, and a Regional Managing Partner and Global Industry Leader with Ernst and Young.   I have advised many companies on some of the largest acquisitions and dispositions in the Media and Entertainment industry, including clients such as Comcast, Citibank, Sony, Disney, Time Warner, Dalian Wanda and Publicis. I am a Registered Investment Adviser in New York State and a Certified Public Accountant with a Masters Degree in Finance from Columbia University..  My skills are further accompanied by a personal passion for the study of economic trends and evolving market dynamics.

So why am I writing and posting my thoughts here? For the experienced and knowledgeable investor, the analyses that I share will provide a perspective that may help improve your returns.  However, the more important reason for me doing this is the intrinsic value I get from helping the person or family that does not have depth of experience in taking on the risk of investments through the purchase of equities. I remember starting my journey as a stock investor and I was afraid, made my share of mistakes, and learned along the way how to start and to grow in comfort in one of the most fundamental ways of creating a sound financial future: adding stock investing to my more established saving tools. It also is fun to do research and to find value that others may have overlooked. So, if I am able to bring a better understanding of the markets and less fear in choosing to make investment decisions, then I will feel a tremendous sense of giving that will make my life richer. Please feel free to ask any questions on the things that may seem confusing or are in need of clarification. I will be happy to teach and explain as best as I can.

Wishing you tremendous success!

Tom
