About Dean Jacobson Financial Services

Dean Jacobson Financial Services is a financial advisory company that has provided unparalleled personal attention to its clients for over 50 years. The firm attributes its growth and longevity to its client relationships, independent and objective financial advice, and a team-based approach.

One of the key principles that Dean Jacobson Financial Services adheres to is independence. The firm maintains its freedom to offer objective financial guidance, whether it's insurance, investments, or any other financial product or service. This commitment ensures that the firm focuses solely on understanding clients' financial goals and providing impartial strategies in their best interests.

The firm was founded in 1967 by William H. "Country" Dean and was later joined by Don "Jake" Jacobson in 1980. This partnership led to the diversification of services that has fueled the firm's success over the years. In 1989, Jeff Schmeltekopf joined the firm, further enhancing client services and transforming it into a comprehensive financial planning business.

Although Country Dean retired in 2002, the firm continued to experience significant growth under the ownership of Jake Jacobson, Jeff Schmeltekopf, Tim Lowry, and Jonathan Dumas. These four co-owners have planned and implemented an intentional evolution of ownership to ensure the firm's longevity, continuity, and consistency in providing high-level service and advice.

Dean Jacobson Financial Services is a registered investment advisor (RIA) and offers independent investment advice and services. The firm also provides wealth management and financial planning services to clients nationwide. With its rich history of personal attention, independence, and a team-based approach, Dean Jacobson Financial Services remains dedicated to helping clients achieve their financial goals through objective guidance tailored specifically to their needs.

The services of FinanceHQ, LLC ("FinanceHQ”) include providing general information, which is not intended as financial advice, and referring users to registered third-party financial advisors who have agreed to be matched to users of our website (our “Advisor Network”). FinanceHQ does not review the ongoing performance of any Advisor, participate in the management of any user's account by an Advisor, or provide advice regarding specific investments. We do not manage client funds or hold custody of assets. We may receive compensation for matching users to members of our Advisor Network, and this can affect the matches we present to our users.

Nothing in our service involves an offer to buy or sell any security or interest. If you choose to work with a registered financial advisor that we match you with, any investment advice they provide is offered entirely by them, without input from us. All investing involves risk, including loss of principal. Working with an advisor may come with potential downsides such as payment of fees (which may reduce returns). There are no guarantees that working with an advisor will yield positive returns. The existence of a fiduciary duty does not prevent the rise of potential conflicts of interest.
