Anthony P. Lombardi

Founder & President

Anthony P. Lombardi is an accomplished athlete, successful business owner, and restaurateur. He has spent his adult life redesigning his businesses to fit his lifestyle and not the other way around.

An entrepreneur by nature, Anthony sold his restaurants 15 years ago and turned his considerable talents towards a career as a financial advisor. Even though Anthony was earning a high six-figure income as an advisor, he wanted to find a better way to operate. After experiencing the inefficiencies inherent in the financial services industry, he decided to change the way he does business. In the process of restructuring his own business, he has found a much more efficient and effective way for all financial advisors to operate.

Anthony realized that in order to take his practice to the next level, he had to take some time off from working directly with end-user clients in order to focus his practice on developing strategic, integrated relationships with Centers of Influence (COI). Specifically, Anthony focused his efforts on developing relationships with CPAs, attorneys, and private bankers that represent the demographic he wanted to work with. While many advisors have attempted to work with COI in the past, Anthony truly “cracked the code” and perfected the revolutionary Perfect Client System.

Anthony has been perfecting the art and science of building strategic, integrated, leveraged relationships with Centers of Influence and has trained hundreds of financial advisors how to supercharge their practice by using the Perfect Client System. Anthony now enjoys a practice where there is virtually no marketing expenses, no prospecting, and no selling to or closing prospects. New business is consistently delivered through the CPAs, attorneys, and private bankers in Anthony’s network. The time that Anthony used to spend on prospecting, marketing, and working on his business he now devotes to his faith, family, and friends.

Before sustaining a career-ending shoulder injury, Anthony spent some time playing for the Houston Astros in their farm system. When he is not spending time with his family, Anthony enjoys surfing every chance he gets. He surfs locally in San Diego, in Fiji, and in some of the world’s other most beautiful destinations. Anthony also loves to fly planes and scuba dive and lives his life to the fullest. He is also extremely active in the community and his church, specifically mentoring young children. Anthony coaches baseball at a local Christian high school and enjoys giving back whenever he can. Using the Perfect Client System enables Anthony the free time to live his life a better way.

Richard Muscio

Lead Architect

Richard Muscio is a CPA whose technical specialty is estate/gift/trust matters.

Richard’s primary role is serving as “of counsel” to 6 Family Offices that have their own “in-house” CPA/CFO. These Family Offices “up-source” a variety of specialty projects to Richard, so that day-to-day operations are not affected by significant projects that normally exceed the scope and experience of a typical in-house CPA/CFO for a Family Office.

Examples include: the design and implementation of large intra-family wealth transfer programs, representation of significant income tax, estate tax, and gift tax controversies with taxing authorities, potential investment due diligence, improving financial and accounting reporting systems including the use of ASP technologies, and serving as the collaborative “hub” of a high-net-worth family’s complimentary legal, financial, valuation, and accounting resource providers.

Richard is the founder of the Move Your Feet Before You Eat Foundation, the Oceanside Turkey Trot and the Vista Strawberry Fest 5k. His foundation focuses on improving public school student physical fitness, replacing junk food snack options with healthy food options, and reducing teen pregnancy in the Oceanside and Vista public school systems. More information is available at www.kinaneevents.com

Richard has expanded his job title to include author as well. In Greg S. Reid’s Book “The Rise,” Richard wrote Chapter 9. His book “So What’s Your Play” focuses on the monumental changes that “The Battle of the Sexes” between Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King had on society in its strive towards gender equality.

For fun Richard plays baseball (no, not softball) and tennis, and he is also a long-distance endurance runner.
