Read Andrew’s Bio
Ever since Andrew was a kid, he had a knack for saving money and small businesses. He started from humble beginnings selling paperweights made from rocks and lemonade in his front yard. His passion for business grew into a lawnmowing service and his entrepreneurial spirit grew from there. Given his knack for business, Andrew also became a good saver at a young age, influenced by his father Joe who owned a financial planning business. As Andrew moved through life, his drive to be a business owner coupled with the habits he learned around money at a young age catapulted him into the financial planning business, and the rest is history.
Andrew started his practice in 2012 in Boston MA after working in the tax department at Liberty Mutual. Andrew’s practice quickly grew, and so did his family. In 2014 he married his wife Jenn, and they moved to New Hampshire where they settled on the Seacoast and now have 3 children, James, Claire and Owen. At that time, Andrew and his father Joe combined forces and branded The Guyton Group.
Andrew enjoys sharing with his clients not just what financial planning options are out there, but most importantly how they can be part of a larger strategy to put his clients in a position of strength so they can work through whatever life throws their way. Andrew works to deliver a cohesive strategy across many disciplines in the financial planning space so that his clients feel confident that they are protected and taking advantage of opportunities.
Andrew earned his BS in finance from Providence College and is an alumnus of Governor Dummer Academy. He was named 4 under 40 by the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors in 2018 and also recognized as a qualifying member of the Guardian Leaders Club, Executive Club, Presidents Council, and Centurion club.
