Our Services

INvestment management

ButlerJeffrey believes that successful investing involves a solid knowledge of the financial market -- and we help our clients navigate the complexities of managing a varied portfolio. We also know that discipline is rewarded over time with solid return on investment. Thus our investment plans focus on controlling the financial factors we can control, while simultaneously educating our clients on market factors and their impact.


ButlerJeffrey’s approach to financial planning is comprehensive, focusing on more than investment management. We understand that each season of life brings necessary changes to a client’s financial situation. Our plans reflect specific present needs in addition to monitoring future needs, including planning for retirement, risk management, insurance needs, estate planning, tax planning, charitable giving, and wealth preservation. Client goals can remain relatively stable over years, but markets, technology, and policy can change frequently. At ButlerJeffrey, our far-sighted planning process enables us to monitor each client and make timely changes to keep you on an optimal track for financial success.
