As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to help you achieve your life goals. - Danna Jacobs, CFP®, ADPA®, MBA

Fee-Only Financial Planner serving the Jersey City, NJ area. We work closely with young professionals, young families and entrepreneurs to provide holistic financial planning services.

Danna Jacobs is a Jersey City, NJ fee-only financial planner. Legacy Care Wealth, LLC provides holistic financial planning and investment management to help young professionals, young families and entrepreneurs organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Danna Jacobs is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

My husband and I love taking our now two-year old son and mini-husky outdoors whenever possible, whether it is hiking, playing in the backyard, swimming at the pool or beach, and skiing/snowboarding when the weather permits. I am simply thrilled to be able to help other young families and entrepreneurs work through the financial decisions they need to achieve their personal goals.  

We work specifically with young professionals to provide the financial peace of mind and take the burden of managing their finances off of their plate so they can focus on what truly matters, managing their careers, taking care of their families, and enjoying their lives.  

Prior to launching Legacy Care Wealth, Danna Jacobs was a Client Service Associate at Barclays Wealth & Investment Management Division working with a top investment advisor at the firm from January 2010 to March 2013. Her responsibilities included responding to client inquires regarding investment management, account maintenance, tax issues, trust and estate administration, as well as assisting the sales team with equity offerings, and marketing alternative investment opportunities.  In addition, she holds an MBA from New York University's Stern School of Business. She completed her MBA with concentrations in Finance and Entrepreneurship, which included coursework in Business Management, Accounting, Business Strategy, Corporate Finance and Business Planning. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts from Vassar College (Poughkeepsie, NY) with concentrations in Economics and Italian.  Lastly, she is a Trustee and Board Member of the Student/Partner Alliance (S/PA), a non-profit organization that partners high school students from Jersey City and Newark with both scholarships and mentors so they can attain a private high school education.
