Our goal is for our clients to feel we are their partners, helping achieve the best possible outcomes.


AndersonLane was founded to provide insight, understanding, and implementation to the families and individuals we serve. 

The future brings with it uncertainty.  Working together, we will increase your certainty and confidence in your financial future.  We will empower you to

We believe strategic financial planning and investment portfolio management deserve equal importance.  Our knowledge of taxes, investment management, estate planning, and comprehensive financial advice is leveraged for your benefit.

Our approach is to work with you in a personal manner and we take pride in being easily accessible and actively communicating.

We bring an analytical expertise for the complex financial decisions and challenges you face.  We provide the information, analysis, and counsel to allow you to make informed decisions and spend your most valuable asset -- your time -- as you wish.

The individuals and families we work with come from different walks of life, but share commonalities. They want an advisory relationship focused on their best interests. They believe in investing in their current and future financial well-being by making well-informed decisions and trying to achieve the best outcomes possible.

You may be just starting out on your chosen career path or well into retirement.  You may prefer using technology that has made communicating and working together from distance very efficient or you may prefer in-person meetings (we provide both).  You may be going through a transition such as new employment, a marriage, children, nearing retirement, need assistance with major decisions, or just wish to delegate management of your increasingly complex financial situation.

Managing Principal Scott Swartz has 16-years. experience working with individuals and families creating and implementing financial strategies.  His expertise includes managing investments, financial independence strategies, strategic tax planning, advising on wealth transitions (inheritance and gifting), assisting with the estate planning process, creating concentrated wealth, employer stock, and restricted share compensation plans, and implementing solutions.

As a Certified Financial Planner™ Scott works as a fiduciary, always in the best interest of his clients.  His advice, recommendations, and portfolio management are not just appropriate but meet the higher standard of always being in the best interests of those he works with.  CFP® Certificants also abide by a Code of Ethics and Rules of Conduct that require putting clients' interests ahead of their own or any other interests.

Scott spent 9 years with The Colony Group in Boston, rising from Associate to Partner, before departing for TFC Financial where he spent 7 years, advising families and serving on the firm’s Investment Committee.  He is a graduate of Bowdoin College (B.A.) and UNC-Chapel Hill (MBA) and resides in Boston with his family.

Your busy work calendar or travel schedule are no problem for us.  Complex compensation, concentrated positions in company stock, and careers involving at times higher risk / higher reward employment are common among our clients. We listen closely to your priorities, goals, and needs and most importantly, to you, which shapes our work together.  We provide knowledge, information, analysis, and guidance put to work for your benefit.

We welcome the opportunity to work with your other tax, estate, and legal advisors and can introduce other experts to make sure solutions and decisions are the best possible for you.
