Andrew grew up in Southern Nevada and Utah and was raised in the financial advisory business. He started investing by the age of 13. Learning the ropes from his father, who led the Whalen Group, he co-hosted a weekly radio program with his father called “Let’s Talk Money” on KDWN-AM, which ran from 1981-2007.

In 2010, Andrew Whalen purchased the Whalen Group from his father and transitioned it into a true wealth management firm that focuses on taxes, estate planning, wealth and investment management.

From the beginning of the transition, Andrew has grown the business by focusing his attention on white-glove client services and the utilization of technology. He sees this as a key advantage in producing results for his clients.

Janelle Manalili graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2017 with her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. She focused on child development and Deaf culture while pursuing bodybuilding during her senior year. She graduated with magna cum laude and pursued a career in education--where she worked with children on the autism spectrum and had a class of second and third graders.

Since moving to Las Vegas in late July of 2018, she has worked for Life Time Athletic in Summerlin as their only female Account Manager.

Shortly after solidifying her role with the company, she decided to pursue a career in the finance industry. She gained valuable experience at a boutique wealth management firm as their Financial Planner’s Assistant and Marketing Coordinator. This allowed her to successfully transition to Whalen Financial as their Client Services Assistant.

When Janelle is not working for her clients at Whalen Financial, she is spending quality time with loved ones, training Muay Thai, and studying to expand her wealth of knowledge in the finance industry.
