FA Center: Would you hire a 24-year-old financial adviser?

The average age of a financial planner in the U.S. is nearly 51. With 43% over age 55, it’s hardly a youthful profession.

Then there’s Andrew Damcevski.

Damcevski, 24, is among the youngest planners in America with a CFP designation. He became a certified financial planner in March 2017 and co-founded a fee-only practice the following month.

As you might guess, Damcevski got an early start. As a University of Cincinnati sophomore in 2012, he listened raptly when a financial adviser addressed his finance class.

“He explained what he did every day, and I thought, ‘That’s what I want to do,’” Damcevski recalled.
