Financial Professional

Niv Persaud, CFP®, is the Founder of Transition Planning & Guidance™, LLC. She believes life is more than accumulating money – it’s about living the lifestyle you envision and can afford.

Over the years, life has become more complicated. What used to be normal expectations have shifted. We’ve redefined many long-held ideas about lifestyle and retirement.

For that reason, Niv looks beyond money when helping clients. She incorporates all aspects of life.

She developed the 5 P’s of Life (Personal Relationships, Personal Finance, Profession, Peace of Mind, and Physical Health) to help clients define what they want from life. Once she understands their vision, she can help them save for their lifestyle.

Transition Planning & Guidance™, LLC, (TransitionPG®) does not manage money and will not ask you to move your money.

We do not sell financial products and will not pressure you to buy investment or insurance products.

We offer comprehensive financial planning and guidance services to help you take control of your money and life.

Our mission is to help you achieve your financial, personal, and professional goals – especially during life transitions. Through our planning services and guidance plans, you take control of your money and life.

With our Divorce Financial Review, you will receive a document to use when meeting with your family law attorney to determine your divorce strategy. Your Divorce Financial Review will help you avoid common financial mistakes. It will help you better understand your financial situation in your new post-divorce life.

Once your divorce is final, you’ll need help with the transition into your post-divorce lifestyle. TransitionPG® offers this guidance via scheduled phone or video calls to help you transition successfully. For more information about this service, visit

Going through a divorce is difficult - I know because I went through one also. While dealing with emotions, you are forced to make major financial decisions that impact the rest of your life. It helps to have someone on your team who is knowledgeable about finances and can simplify information. I am that person.
