The desire to provide objective financial planning was the catalyst for Jeffrey's formation of The Hunter Group in 1986. Prior to that time, Jeffrey worked with General Motors, Citicorp, and Cigna Financial Services where he gained valuable experience and insights into the complexities of corporate and individual financial planning issues. His certification as a Certified Financial Planner™ indicates Jeffrey has completed, and continues to complete, rigorous education, experience, and examination requirements set forth by the CFP Board of Standards. His clients are located worldwide and include numerous executives with Fortune 500 companies and smaller public and privately held firms, small business owners, retired and active business executives, and a Nobel Prize winner. He has assembled a team of top-notch financial planning experts on his staff and works closely with an elite group of estate and tax attorneys, CPAs, and pension specialists.
