The retirement you've earned

It all begins with a plan

Jared Clauss, CRPS

Senior Vice President–Wealth Management

Financial Advisor

I am a Senior Vice President – Wealth Management, Financial Advisor, Senior Retirement Plan Consultant, and Endowment & Foundation Consultant with UBS Financial Services in West Des Moines, Iowa.  I began working with UBS after a career in the NFL from 2004 – 2007.   With over 17 years of industry experience my focus is on overall wealth planning and retirement plan services.  To further my knowledge I obtained the Chartered Retirement Plan Specialist (CRPS) designation.  I currently hold the series 7 and 66 licenses from FINRA as well as Annuity and Life Insurance Licenses. 

We have a client focused and holistic approach to wealth management, while leveraging the resources of a premier global wealth management firm.  This combination allows me to intimately understand what matters most to my clients while providing highly customized financial planning guidance.  I believe in the time-tested applications of diversification and asset allocation in a portfolio to pursue your long-term financial goals.  I pride myself on personal service that goes above and beyond so that I can truly understand my client’s needs and put a plan together which allows them to feel confident in the path moving forward.

I was born and raised in Clive, Iowa and graduated from the University of Iowa in 2003.  While at Iowa as a student athlete I was awarded Academic All-Big Ten 4 times, was named a Verizon Academic All American, and won the Forest Evashevski Scholastic Achievement Award.  In my free time, I enjoy the outdoors and traveling with friends and my family of five.

      As a Client Service Associate, I am the first point of contact in handling client service requests. I play a key role in providing insight and high-quality service to our clients. Prior to joining UBS in May of 2024, I worked at Creative Planning, where I developed a passion for delivering exceptional service to clients and advisors alike.

      I use my experience and deep knowledge of the firm’s processes to provide client solutions proactively and efficiently. I take pride in working smarter not harder and am dedicated to overseeing a great client experience. My goal is to provide superior client communication, education and service while being committed to delivering a high standard of care to our clients and their families.

      Originally from Urbandale, Iowa, I earned my degree from Oklahoma City University. Outside of work, you'll often find me teaching yoga and Pilates, or enjoying quality time with my husband and son. My varied experiences have equipped me with the necessary toolkit to effectively manage the operational aspects of the business, ensuring smooth operations and satisfied clients at UBS.

          Retirement isn’t just about the year you stop working, it's about you, your lifetime of hard work, your family and the lifestyle you want to preserve. Most important, it’s about feeling confident about the future – for many years to come. We believe retirement confidence begins with a plan.
