As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to help you achieve your life goals. - Jeffrey George, CFA®, CEPA
Fee-Only financial planner located in Orlando, FL, serving clients locally and across the country
Jeffrey George is an Orlando, FL fee-only financial advisor serving clients locally and across the country. Tao Financial provides comprehensive financial planning and personal wealth management to help business owners, executives, and individuals organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Jeffrey George is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
Jeff George is an accomplished financial professional with knowledge and experience in a variety of disciplines including accounting, investment banking, institutional investment consulting, private wealth management, financial planning, and business owner exit planning. During his tenure at JPMorgan Investment Bank, Jeff worked with offices worldwide managing the risks associated with billions of dollars of complex investments. As an investment consultant, Jeff advised on $2 billion in corporate and retirement plan assets in plans such as 401(k)s, pensions, executive deferred compensation plans, executive pension plans, and corporate-owned variable life insurance products. It is this deep, yet broad perspective that allows him to guide business owners through the labyrinth of financial decisions they face while starting, growing, and transitioning their businesses.
As a deep and independent thinker, Jeff seeks to challenge the prevailing views about what it takes to make a business grow, to keep it profitable, and what it means to be successful. He believes that employees always matter. While not investing in them may be more profitable in the short term, the choice to do this can come with significantly greater costs later on. He also believes that concentrated power in the hands of large corporations is a major contributor to growing income inequality, and sees a revival in entrepreneurism as the answer to widespread economic growth and prosperity for future generations. Tao Financial was his answer to this need – a firm built to support sustainable growth in small businesses, to encourage a more holistic view of the role businesses play in our communities, and to advocate for a greater focus on financial wellness for both business owners and employees.
