Michael Conaty has a background in teaching and believes education is the most empowering force in the world – a belief he carried over into his career as a Wealth Advisor. He has worked with Knoxvillians for the past 20 years. Michael joined TVAMP in 2016, and prior to that, he was with FTB Advisors. Michael is from Huntington, West Virginia. He earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame.
Michael takes time to build a relationship with each of his clients, helps them get their financial house in order, and learns about their wants and needs before giving any recommendations or advice. Then, he helps them put strategies into place to actively pursue their goals (retiring comfortably, leaving their financial house in order upon their passing, transferring wealth to heirs and/or charity, etc). Michael has decades of experience in multi-generational financial planning.
Michael Conaty meets with clients at our main office at 6025 Brookvale Lane in Knoxville and is available to meet at Knoxville TVA Employees Credit Union with members.
Being a contributing member of the Knoxville community is very important to Michael. He is active in the Sacred Heart Parish, the Knoxville Catholic High School community, and the Knox Youth Sports League at Lake Shore Park.
Michael is very passionate about seeing the world. Over the past few years, he has traveled to Stonehenge, the Tower of London, Acropolis of Athens, and the Taj Mahal. However, Michael’s new favorite place to be is with his grandchildren. He and his wife, Ann Marie, became grandparents in 2018. They call it “an indescribable joy.”
Michael enjoys working in his garden at home, tending to his flowering bushes, and growing herbs and vegetables.
“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” – Mark Twain

It may be early to declare victory against COVID-19, but significant progress in that battle has been made this year, even in the face of new variants. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), half of the U.S. population above the age of 65 has been fully vaccinated, while a third of the total population has received at least one dose of the vaccine. We expect this trend to accelerate in the coming weeks, as many millions more Americans become eligible.
