Additional Information


My name is Vid Ponnapalli. I am the owner of Unique Financial Advisors. I provide customized financial planning, investment management, and tax planning services for busy, mid-career professionals. Here is my story:

Flashback: I was 40. My wife and I were busy with our careers and three children. Our financial accounts were scattered. We were paying a lot in income taxes. We had conflicting financial goals: Spend on the car we like, spend on family vacations, save for our dream home, save for our kids’ education or save for retirement. We needed help organizing our financial life; We needed financial advice, so we could achieve our goals! We looked around but could not find an unbiased financial advisor who would put our interest before his/hers.

Fast forward: Five years later, I approached a financial advisor for help with Investment Management. His firm insisted that I need a minimum of $1million to become a client. I was not ready to commit that much money to start a new advisory relationship. Again, I could not find the financial advisor I was looking for!

That is when I realized that busy, mid-career professionals are under-served by traditional financial planning methods. I wanted to contribute and change this paradigm. The result: I launched Unique Financial Advisors in 2014 with a commitment to provide fee-only financial advice with no asset or income minimums. 

If this fits your vision, too, please visit my website to learn more. 

On a personal note – my beautiful wife, Maha and I live in Holmdel, New Jersey. Our three young boys are on their path to settling down in life. When I am not working, I enjoy hiking, skiing, and spending time with family.
