Financial planning tailored to your goals

Your financial life is unique. The same should be true of your financial plan. We take the time to get to know you, your family and all your most important priorities. As your circumstances change over time and as new opportunities arise, we'll work with you to adjust your plan to help keep you on track. When you look to the future, you should like what you see.

Jonathan Strong, CRPC

Account Vice President

Financial Advisor

I began my career in 1991 at the National Association of Investors Corporation (NAIC), a non-profit that provides investment education to individuals and investment clubs (www.betterinvesting.org). I worked in various areas; educational seminars, membership services, product development, marketing, advertising, sales and corporate membership. As a director, I worked with finance executives at Fortune 500 companies to help develop shareholder and employee investment education programs. NAIC provided me the experience to advance my skills in many areas; developing new educational programs, creating new products, building membership and advising corporate leaders.

I joined Merrill Lynch in 2005 as a financial advisor. As a team advisor, I attracted new clients, built assets and developed new programs to educate and advise clients and other groups within the community. My team moved to UBS Financial Services in 2012. I use my professional experience and knowledge to educate and help families, small businesses and nonprofits with their strategic investment planning – helping them reach financial and strategic goals. We focus on educating our clients to help them create and follow their plan to become successful lifetime investors.

Personal Background

I have dedicated time to Dale Carnegie, Boy Scouts of America, United Way and Salvation Army. My personal interests include antiques, Michigan history, classic automobiles, sailing and skiing. I live in Troy, Michigan with my wife, Kathleen (an elementary education teacher) and our children Nathan and Justin.
