Tim Starkey, Founder and Managing Partner of Starkey Financial Partners, understands the value of personal relationships. Throughout his 20-plus-year career as a financial planner, Tim has drawn inspiration from his formative experience within small independent schools. As a student, Tim benefited from teachers who provided him superb individualized support. That focus on developing one-on-one relationships has formed the bedrock of Tim’s practice with each and every client.

In 2019, Tim founded Starkey Financial Partners to fulfill his passion for delivering individualized service to clients striving to become financially resilient.
Tim earned a B.S. in Business & Economics from Lehigh University and is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®). He serves on the Board of Trustees at The Peddie School and is a former Trustee at Chapin School—the very places that inspired his passion for earning clients’ trust and developing personalized relationships.
