Michael P. Palmer

Founder & President | Registered Representative

I partnered with my father to form Palmer Financial, LLC because I believe in the power of financial planning to change my clients’ lives for the better. I enjoy working with clients who have questions about their finances and are actively working toward creating a better future for themselves and their families.

I love what I do because I see myself as a teacher and coach as much as a financial professional. I enjoy educating my clients and making the complex simple to understand. Digging into my clients’ situations and making sense of the whole picture is also a satisfying challenge. After more than a decade helping clients manage money, I understand that we cannot predict markets with any certainty. However, by understanding our clients’ needs, carefully managing risk, and paying close attention to details, we can help our clients achieve their goals in uncertain times.

Financial planning is the family business and I learned much of what I know over dinnertime conversations and by growing up in my father’s office. Before entering the industry, I graduated from Allegheny College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics. I joined Allegheny as a Development Officer post graduation, raising over $1.5 million for the college's endowment.

I live in Fairview, PA with my wife and two sons. When I’m not working, I’m usually spending time with my wife and our two active boys. I also enjoy reading, playing golf, and watching football.
