Dan Mahoney, CFP®
Founder and President
I founded True Square Financial in 2017. After more than 15 years in the financial services industry, I know that fee-only financial advice, delivered by an expert, can meaningfully improve most families’ lives. Unfortunately, this kind of high quality, individualized advice has historically been restricted to only the wealthiest families. I built True Square Financial around the idea that technology now makes it possible to deliver highly customized financial advice to a larger number of families at a reasonable cost.
I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. I am also the proud father of triplets (two girls and a boy) who started kindergarten in 2016. When I’m not wrangling children or nerding out on personal finance and investments, I can be found playing squash, smoking meat on the Big Green Egg, or doing something outdoors. My wife, Tucker, is a coastal engineer at FEMA who helps coastal communities assess and mitigate the risk of flooding. We live in Atlanta, Georgia.
I advise my clients across all areas of their financial lives:
- Tax minimization
- Real estate
- Insurance and annuities
- Education planning and funding (college and private school)
- Student loans
- Retirement planning
- Estate planning and trusts
- Credit bureaus and credit scoring models
- Banking and credit cards
I earned an A.B. in economics from Dartmouth College and an M.B.A. from the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia. I am a member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) and the Financial Planning Association (FPA).
