Bringing Order To Professionals’ Financial Lives
Jeffrey Waters, CFP(R)
With a sophisticated approach to asset allocation, as well as extensive experience in, and knowledge of, capital markets, Jeff is ideally positioned to become a trusted advisor to a select group of high net worth individuals. He can help you make sound financial decisions, keep you in financial control and, most importantly, eliminate your financial “chaos.”

In 2004, Jeff completed the Intensive Course in Financial Planning at New York University (NYU) and became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certificant in December 2005. From 2005-2007 Jeff was a Lecturer at NYU, where he taught the Investment Planning to candidates enrolled in the CFP(R) Program.
Jeff has a BA in Economics from Yale University and an MBA degree from the Stanford University Graduate School of Business.
Jeff is a member of the Board of Education for the Millburn Township Public School System. He was formerly Vice President and Chairman of the Finance Committee.
