Jon Houk is the founder and president of JPH Advisory Group, Inc., a registered investment advisory firm in Atlanta. Jon entered the financial services industry back in 1985, and he’s advised clients for more than 25 years, in bull and bear markets, doing work he’s passionate about. In fact, his personal mission statement is “to do all things with integrity and passion, all the while staying connected and committed to my God and my family.” As a minister’s son, Jon grew up with a fundamental sense of right and wrong, and a strong respect for ethics and relationships. Pairing his talent, insight and knowledge with a warm, candid personality, he has become a trusted professional for many Atlanta families. At age 25, Jon was selected by a major financial services company to open and manage its new branch office in Birmingham. A year later, he became a regional manager for that same company in Atlanta. However, Jon soon realized that he wanted to be as independent and unique as the clients he advised. He realized that most large financial services corporations were not always working toward the benefit and best interest of the client. Keeping this in mind, Jon created JPH Advisory Group, and he became the client-based advisor his clients wanted. Jon knew that only by creating an independent, client-centric firm could he have the time to develop deep relationships with his existing clients and thereby help them create financial success for the long run.
