Impact Fiduciary LLC


As a fiduciary financial planner, you can rest assured that I am always working in your best interest. - Patrick Dinan, CFP®

Patrick Dinan is a Los Angeles, CA financial advisor and investment manager. Impact Fiduciary LLC specializes in financial planning, sustainable investing, and retirement planning to help clients work towards their financial goals at all stages of life. Patrick Dinan is a fiduciary financial planner.

Professional Background

Originally from Pennsylvania, I have a bachelor's degree in finance from the University of Pittsburgh with a minor in English literature. I'm a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and seasoned advisor with over twelve years of experience in the financial services industry. Prior to founding Impact Fiduciary, I was one of the first advisors at Personal Capital, a large independent firm, where I directly worked with over 300 clients and advised on more than $100 million of assets.

Financial Planning

Like most clients I serve, you are probably busy with your career, your family, fitness and other passions. Financial planning may not be at the top of your to-do list. My goal is to be your accountability partner in developing and executing your personalized vision. Over the long run, this will save you time, money, and unnecessary stress so you can focus on what's truly important to you. 

Investment Management

I'm proud to focus on sustainable investing so you can align your values with your money while investing in a better world. I never use expensive and opaque mutual funds or try to time the market. Through my rigorous research and years of investing experience, I have found that successful investment strategies are well-diversified, disciplined and keep costs low.

My Story

My wife and I met in Pittsburgh before moving to the west coast. After spending the past decade in California, we’ve rounded out all the major cities including San Diego, San Francisco and now reside in Atwater Village in Los Angeles. When I’m not advising clients, you can find me at one of the local parks or beaches with my two young daughters. I love swimming in the open water and over the years I’ve escaped from Alcatraz, swam under the Golden Gate Bridge and raced from San Diego to Coronado.

Impact Fiduciary LLC acts as a fiduciary at ALL TIMES.  We serve only you and no one else.  We do not receive any compensation or kickbacks for selling products like mutual funds, insurance, or annuities.  It's hard to believe, but most advisors aren't registered as fiduciaries and legally aren't bound to act in your best interest.  This means they can put you in a high-fee product with a higher commission, even when a lower cost alternative is available.

You may have read in the news recently that advisors now have to act as fiduciaries when working with clients.  This isn't true.  In 2018 new rules will be phased in so that advisors will have to act as a fiduciary on retirement accounts, unless you sign what's known as a Best Interest Contract Exemption that waives this obligation. Regardless, non-fiduciary and dually registered brokers can still put your savings outside of your 401k and IRAs in products that may not be in your best interest.  You deserve better and should work with someone who will always put your interests first.
