Ian M. Jones AIF®
Ian’s philosophy of creating comprehensive plans for all types of markets has resulted in a successful wealth management practice spanning over 20 years. Ian takes a consultative, ground up approach with focus on clients wants and needs.
Most financial planning is based on a top-down approach - essentially determining a client's level of investment assets and then recommending an asset allocation strategy. Ian’s philosophy takes a contrarian - holistic approach by focusing on a client's specific needs and identifying potential pitfalls & shortages before making a single recommendation.
Once a client understands their needs, Ian makes a formal recommendation that include strategies that seek to preserve their lifestyles through all market cycles.
Ian helps pre-retirees set their expectations for retirement, both when they can reasonably retire and what type of lifestyle they can expect. Meanwhile Ian helps current retirees with strategies aimed at making their money last without impacting their current lifestyle.
Ian was born and raised in the UK. Ian lived and worked in San Diego and London between 1988 and 1997. In 1998 Ian took up residence solely in San Diego, becoming a US citizen in 2004. Ian lives with his wife Jennifer and two daughters Summer and Hannah.
