How We Found the Top Financial Advisor Firms in Jackson, Mississippi

To create this list of top financial firms, SmartAsset considered all U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)-registered firms in Jackson. We specifically looked at SEC-registered firms because they have a fiduciary duty to put their clients’ best interests ahead of their own. From there, we eliminated any firms with disciplinary issues. Only firms with a clean record made it onto our final list for consideration. We also eliminated firms that did not manage individual accounts or did not have financial planners on staff. The remaining firms were sorted according to assets under management (AUM), from highest AUM to lowest.

EFP Advisors

EFP Advisors

EFP Advisors is a fee-only advisor with $141.64 million in assets under management (AUM). As a fee-only firm, advisors only receive compensation from management fees. They do not receive any commissions, referral fees or other forms of compensation.

EFP Advisors is relatively small firm with five advisors on staff. One advisor is a certified financial planner (CFP) and another is both a CFP and a certified public accountant (CPA).

There is no required minimum for opening an account with EFP Advisors, but clients with lower account balances will pay higher management fees. The firm charges its management fee at marginal rates, so clients with less than $250,000 under management will pay a fee of 1.95% of their AUM, clients with assets between $250,001 and $500,000 will pay a fee of 1.75%, all the way down to a fee of 0.50% for clients with $5,000,001 or more under management.

The firm serves mostly high-net-worth individuals but it may also serve non-high-net-worth individuals, businesses, pension and profit-sharing plans, trusts, estates and charitable organizations.

EFP Advisors Background

EFP Advisors was founded in 2012 by Douglas McDaniel and Christopher Register. They are still the principal owners, with McDaniel serving as president and Register serving as vice president. The firm may also do business under the names McDaniel & Register Inc., R. Lenoir & Associates, W. O. Stone Advisors and Collaborative Advice.

EFP Advisors offers clients general financial planning services in addition to portfolio management services. Portfolio management also includes assistance with creating and maintaining a portfolio for a 401(k) plan.

EFP Advisors Investing Strategy

According to EFP Advisors, minimizing risk is a priority for all client portfolios. The firm does this by using a globally diverse asset allocation. The firm invests in mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in addition to individual securities.

Notably, the firm says it will sometimes adjust a client’s asset allocation to capitalize on “fat-pitch” opportunities. The firm defines a “fat-pitch” opportunity as a case where it finds “one asset undervalued relative to competing asset classes.”

Wealthview Capital, LLC

Wealthview Capital, LLC

Like EFP Advisors, Wealthview Capital, LLC is a fee-only advisor, which means it does not receive any commissions like fee-based firms may. It is also a small firm with four total employees, one of whom is a certified financial planner (CFP).

Wealthview Capital has $138 million in assets under management (AUM). It does not have a set account minimum, nor does it charge a minimum annual fee. Account management fees are assessed at marginal rates. There’s a 1% annual management fee for assets under $1 million, a 0.75% annual management fee for assets between $1 million and $3 million and a 0.50% annual fee for assets over $3 million.

More than three-quarters of Wealthview Capital clients are high-net-worth individuals. Those are not the only clients that the firm serves, however. It also works with non-high-net-worth individuals, businesses, trusts and foundations.

Wealthview Capital, LLC Background

Samuel J. Taylor founded Wealthview Capital in 2009 and remains the principal owner. He opened the firm with the goal of starting a “high-touch, low-cost alternative for professional wealth management.”

Wealthview Capital takes a holistic approach when managing portfolios. It believes investment decisions are about more than just looking at the numbers. It considers a client’s individual goals, risk tolerance and values. Are you saving for retirement? Are you investing to set the next generation up for success? Do you place an emphasis on giving back to your community? Wealthview Capital aims to help you achieve all of those goals.

The firm offers a number of financial planning services including education planning, retirement planning, insurance planning and legacy planning. These are all in addition to investment and portfolio management services.

Wealthview Capital, LLC Investing Strategy

Wealthview Capital’s investing goals are to create diverse, low-cost and tax-efficient portfolios for clients. In line with that goal, the firm adheres to the efficient market theory. This theory states that it is not possible to “beat” the market. Instead, investors should take a more passive approach.

Wealthview Capital’s approach is active indexing. The firm uses an index fund to create a baseline asset allocation and then adjusts from the index to incorporate other profitable securities.

Rank City Housing Expenses Food Expenses Healthcare Expenses Utilities Expenses Transportation Expenses

Methodology SmartAsset calculated the average cost of living for retirees in the largest U.S. cities. Using that calculation, we determined how many years $1 million would last in retirement in each major city.

First, we looked at data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) on the average annual expenditures of seniors throughout the country. We then applied cost of living data from the Council for Community and Economic Research to adjust those national average spending levels based on the costs of each expense category (housing, food, healthcare, utilities, transportation and other) in each city.

We assumed the $1 million would grow at a real return (interest minus inflation) of 2%, reflecting the typical return on a conservative investment portfolio. Finally, we divided $1 million by the sum of each of those annual numbers to determine how long $1 million would last in each of the cities in our study.
