Andrew Seested is a partner at Vintage Financial. Vintage Financial aims to provide trusted advisors to individuals and businesses seeking independent, collaborative and transparent advice.
Prior to joining Vintage Financial Partners, Andrew was a Senior Vice President and Wealth Advisor for the wealth management division within one of the largest banks in the country, where he helped high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth clients protect, manage, and transition their wealth. Andrew started his career as an equity partner in a Fintech in Silicon Valley. This early exposure to being on the ground floor of building and growing a business affords Andrew with a unique appreciation and understanding of entrepreneurship.
Over the course of his career, Andrew has worked for some of the most prestigious Private Banking and Wealth Management institutions in the industry. This experience at large, publicly traded financial institutions provides Andrew with a unique perspective. Andrew recognized the need for a more transparent model for advising his clients. One that is independent of the large banks and financial institutions who manage first and foremost their corporate fiduciary shareholder responsibility; a culture that is independent of proprietary products, sales incentives, and conflicts of interest; one that provides advice under a fiduciary framework, where there is a legal standard to put clients’ interests first. The LPL advisors of Vintage Financial Partners believe their strategic alliance with LPL, the #1 Independent Broker/Dealer1 and #3 Registered Investment Advisor Custodian2 in the United States, is that model.
Andrew leads his personal and professional life on the principle of giving his time and efforts to support those in need in his local community and beyond. Andrew serves on the board of Hearts & Homes for Youth, a nonprofit organization that empowers youth to make positive life choices and build brighter futures.
Andrew lives in Rockville, MD, with his wife and two daughters. Away from the office, Andrew enjoys the outdoors and spending time with his family in Bethany Beach. On the weekends during Lacrosse season, Andrew can be found on the sidelines cheering on his youngest daughter.
