Jack Meyer, CFP® 



Most people go to the grave with the music still in them. Why? For most, it’s a matter of not having the confidence that they can have that “one best financial life” without running out of money. 

I’m dedicated to helping people organize their finances and do more with the wealth they have. 

I want all people to fund every dollar of every dream—every year—and have their last two pennies hold their eyelids down in the coffin.

Outside of working closely with clients, you can find me taking care of my wonderful family.

Getting Started with Meyer Wealth

Our Process

1 Introductory Call

Before we begin our process together, we like to have a preliminary call. We'll get to understand your specific equity compensation model, and explain how we can help you plan for your future.  If we decide to continue on together, we’ll schedule our first official meeting.

Schedule Your 15-Minute Call

2 Initial Meeting

Before our first meeting you'll have access to our planning system to begin updating your profile and building your plan. You'll even have the ability to input your stock vesting information. 

In our first official meeting, we’ll get to know more about you by guiding you through a couple of exercises to help you prioritize your financial life goals. Sign up below for a free trial to our planning system. 

Planning System

3 Create Plan

Based on the goals you’ve defined, our team will develop a custom-made comprehensive financial plan with recommendations to help you achieve your objectives. We will also outline a strategy for your stock compensation based on your objectives.  

4 Present Plan

We will then meet with you once again to present the initial financial plan. We will schedule another meeting to present the plan and provide you with action items and the steps towards a successful financial plan. We will answer questions like:

a. Can you successfully fund your financial goals?
b. Are your lifestyle and assets protected?
c. What are the financial implications of your stock grants?

5 Establish a Relationship

When the plan is complete, let’s decide if we want to continue the relationship. If deciding to collaborate long-term, you’ll continue to have access to our financial tools to help you track your progress from the comfort of your home and stay on top of your goals.

Q: What do you mean by a virtual firm?

A: Our team works remotely so we can meet with you via video conferencing, phone or email at your convenience. This also means we can meet with clients from all over the country. While we generally work remotely and meet clients virtually, we can meet by appointment at our Naperville location.

Q: If you’re a virtual office, does that mean my data is safe with you?

A: Absolutely. We’ve implemented top-of-the-line safety and security protocols to safeguard your data. We’d be happy to discuss this in more detail during your initial meeting.

Q: When are your office hours?

A: If you have a question or need assistance, our office hours are as follows: 8-4 Monday-Thursday and 8-3 on Fridays. While we are available during these hours, we only meet in person by appointment as we’re a virtual office.

Q: What is SRI and ESG, and why does that matter to me?

A: SRI stands for socially responsible investing, and ESG refers to environmental, social and governance principles. Both of these forms of investing take into consideration your portfolio’s greater impact, from its environmental ramifications to its societal implications.

This form of investing presents an opportunity for you to align a core part of your financial life directly with the causes that are most important to you and your family. We take the time to get to know your values and can work with you to design a portfolio that not only will serve you but your community or the world at large.

A: Our team is uniquely experienced with these forms of compensation and can help you take advantage of the benefits available to you and maximize your plan.

Q: What services does Meyer Wealth offer?

A: As wealth advisors, we provide holistic financial plans for a fee. If you want to establish an ongoing investment management or financial guidance relationship, we can do that too. To learn more about what we can do for you, explore our services.

A: Fees for financial plans will vary on the complexity of the plan but typically range from $1500 to $10,000. We also charge fees for managing your assets. The fee for our comprehensive financial plans and access to our client portal and financial planning software is $2500 up front and $200 per month.
