The Finance Buff

About: Hello, and thank you for visiting my blog. I’m a mid-career professional in late 30’s with an MBA in finance. In previous jobs, I worked for an investment advisory firm and in the employee benefits department of a multi-national manufacturing company where I earned my Certified Employee Benefits Specialist credential. I write on this blog about spending, saving, investing, taxes, banking, mortgage, insurance, and other personal finance related topics.
