Our team members at Starkey Financial Partners include:
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.
Tim began his career as a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch and then Morgan Stanley, where he developed a reputation for excellence in financial planning. 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 has been on the Alumni Leadership Council, Planned Giving Committee, Bell Society, and Investment Committee 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.
