What is "Fee Only Financial Planning," and why is it important?

The Big Picture

What do fishery science, river engineering and financial planning have in common? Surprisingly, quite a bit. They are all professions requiring strong analytical and complex problem-solving skills! While not the typical path, it is what makes Jason’s multifaceted background as a natural resource consultant and financial planner a powerful point of distinction he brings to Hausman Advisors. A life-long learner and educator alike, Jason is passionate about helping people discover and act on what is most important to them about their wealth and their lives. His experiences and personality enable Jason to view wealth management with the evidence-based eye of an engineer, with an extensive background in asking, “Why is this so?” and “How can we make it better?”

At Hausman Advisors

Prior Experience

For a decade prior to becoming a financial professional, Jason was a fishery scientist and natural resources consultant, working for a globally recognized river engineering firm based in Hood River. After transitioning to financial planning in 2005, Jason became a financial advisor as a registered representative for a regional broker/dealer. He merged businesses with Robert Hausman in 2008 when he formed Hausman Advisors and assumed management of the combined firm.
