Jeffrey B. Augustine, CFA, CFP® is the Principal and Founder of Augustine Financial Solutions LLC.

I specialize in working with clients who are planning retirement, are near retirement or are in retirement.  It is for these clients that many issues around life and financial matters come together.  By creating a financial world that works for them, I experience the joy and satisfaction of making a lasting difference in their lives.

My story is that I grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago. I majored in science at Loyola University Chicago and studied what I found interesting.  But it didn’t take long for me to switch gears from working in a hospital chemistry lab to a job working in financial services.  

Several years after graduating, a college friend who worked for the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) invited me to see the trading floor.  I was hooked!  Working on the trading floor of the exchange appealed to me.  Not long after that, I started on the CBOE trading floor as a runner for A.G. Becker, Inc.  Later, I clerked for two market-makers and became a member of the CBOE as a partner at Naegele Augustine & Company.  That experience provided me with expertise in options strategies and related equity investing that I used in subsequent work and that I can apply today.  

It was my time on the CBOE that generated an opportunity to move from Chicago to Boston.  In Boston, I spent most of the next seventeen years in investment management and related roles at two Boston-based mutual fund companies.  I continued to grow in my knowledge in both equity and fixed income investing with senior roles in fixed income quantitative research, tax exempt portfolio management, and equity portfolio construction.

Throughout my career I’ve added industry-relevant education to further develop my human capital.  I am a CFA® charterholder, a CFP® certificant, a NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisor and an IRS Annual Filing Season Program 2017 certificant.  Annually, I often attend well over 30 hours of professional development coursework and seminars to stay on top of the latest developments in financial planning, investments and tax matters that affect individuals and families. 

I’m honored to have been quoted in The Boston GlobeThe Boston HeraldThe Wall Street Journal and The Bond Buyer during my years as an institutional portfolio manager.

My community service includes volunteer work for two non-profit boards.  CFA Society Boston is a member and founding society of CFA Institute.  I have served as Chair, Vice Chair, Chair of Education and Programs, Secretary and Treasurer since my election to the Board of Directors in 2011.  In 2015, I was elected to the Board of Trustees for Lasell Village, a congregate care retirement community on the campus of Lasell College in Newton, Massachusetts. I also serve on the Lasell Village Audit and Investment Committees.

My wife Patti and I have made our home in suburban Boston. It’s here that we’ve raised our three children.  It sure has been fun coaching our children’s sports teams, watching them in their activities, and cheering them on over the years.  I’ve been a long-time participant in contemporary church music ministry and I enjoy music in general, theater, swimming, and rooting for our Boston sports teams.
