NAIFA Loyal Member Profile: Vincent Dallo

By NAIFA on 4/8/21 7:01 PM

Vinny Dallo, ChFC, CLU, CLTC, LUTCF, serves as President-Elect for NAIFA- New York and has been a loyal NAIFA member since 2005. He practices with Kappan Financial, LLC, in Fairport, NY, where he specializes in personal financial planning.

Vinny’s introduction to the financial services industry is rather unique. He was initially brought on to the MetLife team as a call center manager. He excelled in the position after creating a subscription service that called MetLife advisors’ current clients to strengthen their existing relationships. For a minimal price, advisors both new and established, could sign up for these “warm appointments” that ultimately lead to stronger advisor-client relationships and increased production. Vinny’s initial job as a call center manager enabled him to see the ins-and-outs of a career as a financial advisor with MetLife before pursuing it himself.

Later, the top recruiter in his office questioned why he wasn’t pursuing a career as an advisor, as it was the “perfect fit for him.” That prompted Vinny to pursue a long-term professional goal to have a “helpful impact on other people.”  He soon found his new path gave him a strong sense of fulfillment. He  even enjoyed reading through the dense, sometimes overly complicated, financial portfolios of his clients that they felt to be daunting.
