Your Stein Financial Team


In 1986, Jeffery Stein joined the independent financial firm of Howard Zimmerman, who had a client base in the Twin Cities area. Upon Mr. Zimmerman’s retirement in 1999, Jeffery reorganized the practice as Stein Financial Group, a full-service financial planning firm.


At Stein Financial Group, we develop lasting relationships with individuals and families by understanding their long-term goals and by providing individually-tailored solutions. This mission drives Stein Financial Group to be the best financial advisors to our fellow Minnesotans. 

Our team will help you navigate through decisions and help you prepare for the future. We take pride in our strong client relationships, and our record shows it: many of our client relationships are 30 years old and counting.

The best part of working with clients: The opportunity to instill in them confidence regarding their financial world and then seeing their transformation from nervous and uncertain to optimistic and assured.

Favorite places to visit:  Any place that includes being with my family. I love to travel and always enjoy hearing about great trips my clients have taken.

Something few people know about me:   During my college years at the University of Minnesota I sold Gopher souvenirs outside and inside of old Memorial Stadium and at Williams Arena. If you attended a game in the 70s, that sweatshirt, t-shirt, or hat you purchased may have been from me. Of the many great things that came from this experience, the best is that it was through this job I was able to meet Jeanne, who became my wife.

*The Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) is an independent association. Membership is based on production.

A born and raised Minnesotan, Anthony Gerbi has been with Stein Financial Group since 2014 and has a bachelor's degree in Economics and Statistics from the University of Minnesota. He holds Series 7 and Series 66 registrations in addition to his Minnesota Life, Accident, and Health Insurance license.

The best part of working with clients: I like numbers, analytics, ideas... but it's hard to say that the best part of my job is anything other than the relationships built with all the people I talk to everyday. Everyone has a story and a unique perspective. It's the realization that each client, each person we interact with is living a life as vivid and complex as our own, with their own ambitions, friends, routines, and worries. I think the most gratifying thing I'm able to do is use my time and talents to make our clients' days a little bit brighter, a little less worrisome, and simply just a little bit better. 

Hobbies outside of work: I’m passionate about films and sports, especially the local teams, and I’m often enjoying the beautiful Minnesota scenery on one of my regular walks. 

Favorite places to visit: Being born in Little Falls, Minnesota, a town that straddles the Mississippi River, I've always found myself most at home near the sounds of rushing water and with a cool breeze on my face. I do travel, I love the outdoors, big cities, and everything else the wider world has to offer, but there's nothing quite like coming home. 

Something few people know about me: My childhood dream was to become a paleontologist and dig up dinosaur bones.
