Jesse Martyn, BFA, CFP, CLU

Wealth & Estate Planning Specialist

I found my way into the financial services industry in a roundabout way - a decade as a professional actor. Someone who loves to argue, sing, and cry in front of an audience might not traditionally also love time-value of money calculations, but that's why when I was looking for the next step beyond performing, I got started in the industry providing insurance and planning advice. 

Supported by my strong practical and analytical mindset, balanced by a drive to figure out what makes people tick, I assimilate all required data gathered to assess a client's big picture during a discovery phase, then drive the analysis of courses of action and design the most meaningful and dynamic way to document and present recommendations. I'm a creative strategist driven to get the planning process started and guide it through a wealth planning process, all while making sure that our recommendations are clearly articulated and inspiring. 

This is all backed up by a lifelong desire to continue to deepen my knowledge of complex insurance and wealth planning including my status as a Certified Financial Planner professional and Chartered Life Underwriter. I'm driven by my values of security, happiness, integrity, health and environment. With all of this in mind, it's probably not a surprise that I'm a Kolbe 8-4-5-2, led by Fact Finder. 

Industry Experience: Worked with a boutique firm, Evolution Strategies, creating custom advanced insurance and planning solutions. Previously, independent holistic financial professional specialized in socially responsible investments and working with the creative class.
