Jeffrey Tilson is a Member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors
The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is a leading professional association of Fee-Only financial advisors - highly trained professionals who are committed to working in the best interests of those they serve.
NAPFA members live by three important values:
- To be the beacon for independent, objective financial advice for individuals and families.
- To be the champion of financial services delivered in the public interest.
- To be the standard bearer for the emerging profession of financial planning.
After many years at large financial institutions, we found another way to help clients more effectively through a smaller and more personalized platform. JST is a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) which allows its advisors to provide a unique level of personalized service not always found in investor-advisor relationships. RIAs are held by law to the highest standard of responsibility to their clients, therefore upholding them to always act in their clients’ best interests.
Financial advisors have widely different levels of expertise. We believe that clients who entrust their wealth to an advisor deserve to work with highly credentialed experts.
