    Jonathan “Jock” Danforth started his career in the financial services industry in 1986 at Merrill Lynch where he stayed until 2000 when he was recruited to join UBS.

    Born in Buenos Aires Argentina, he grew up in Fairfield CT and in Wilmington DE, as one of five siblings. He graduated Cum Laude from Westminster School in Simsbury Connecticut and went on to earn his Bachelor of Science degree in Geology, from Saint Lawrence University in Canton NY.

    His love for geology brought him to Denver, and Alaska - above the Arctic Circle and then the open ocean on a few different ships off the East coast of the United States during his stint as a geologist.

    Jock’s love for the ocean found him earning his 100-ton US Coast Guard captain’s license where he continues to enjoy time on the water in the warmer months with family and friends and doing occasional fishing charters.

    Being a Captain; Jock understands risk and the art of protecting his passengers on their journey, thus, thoughtful planning and protection have been a theme for the Danforth team for 3 decades and now spanning 2 generations as his son William has been in the business for 6 years, and recently joined Danforth Wealth Management from Fidelity.

    Jock currently serves on the investment committee for Old North church; he served as president of Maddie’s Anglers Club and is a former Co-chair of the Eastern Yacht Club Race Committee. He was also the President of the Marblehead/Swampscott Youth Lacrosse League. Jock's other community involvement also includes supporting the ALS therapy development Institute and being a supporter of Pete Frates’ Team Freight Train, a hero and friend of the family.

    Jock is an avid skier and water sports enthusiast; he met his wife Amy in Denver and they have lived in Marblehead Massachusetts since 1990. They have two other adult children, Kate, and Maggie, and all three live in the Boston area. Will is recently married and living in Charlestown.
