Philosophy & Approach

Jonathan joined Stephens in 2017 and has been in the industry for more than 25 years. Jonathan focuses on creating customized wealth management solutions that are implemented through discretionary portfolio management and have the ability to evolve alongside each client. According to Jonathan, “Building a trusting relationship with clients, in which they feel comfortable sharing their financial aspirations, such as generating wealth or creating a philanthropic legacy, as well as voicing their risk tolerances, is essential. From there I am able to develop an investment portfolio that takes both into account and reflects each clients’ personalized needs.”

Ellen Dejewski and Max Volpi support Jonathan and work together to meet their client’s needs.
