Jeff Motske, CFP®
President and CEO

"For 10 years, I have used proven coaching strategies to help clients strive for their most important financial goals through behavior modification and sound planning."

Jeff Motske, CFP®

Jeff Motske is an author, an accomplished executive, radio personality and financial advisor. He is the author of The Couple's Guide to Financial Compatibility and hosts the weekly radio show, Declare Your Financial Independence, where he crusades to bring real planning to real people and help them use the proven steps toward financial independence.   But that's not what's special about him, what's special about Jeff happens on a Tuesday afternoon at his son's baseball practice, or a Thursday night playing slow-pitch softball with his 70 plus year-old dad, or an early morning pouring over ideas with his wife, Kendra. Jeff is one-of-a-kind in the financial services world because he knows and lives what some people really don't understand: financial success isn't a destination, it's a choice and a commitment, one decision at a time.

Jeff started as just another California kid with Midwestern roots. He got a job straight out of college with a small mutual fund company doing retirement planning. But his aspirations grew. As he watched the landscape of financial services, Jeff saw in living color how disconnected most of his industry was from the real-life, everyday issues of Americans. He saw, with great remorse, how distant his profession could become from the people it served and from the goals they espoused. His clients were making the hard decisions to pay down debt, save for the future in small sums, commit to their families and their work, live deeply-rooted lives. He believed that financial planning could be more like what he saw in his client's lives everyday and less like Wall Street. By creating Trilogy Financial in 1999, and bringing together the resources for middle-class Americans to find financial independence, Jeff has focused on revolutionizing his industry and is still doing so today.




 

 

Jeff's Client Relationships

Jeff and his team support a wide variety of clients, but here are some of the groups he has built his practice around.

 

Investing is for Everyone

A generation or so ago, the path to financial freedom was pretty direct for most. You found a job and saved for a home and a rainy day. When it was time to retire, you collected from a pension and enjoyed your remaining twilight years. Over time, things have drifted away from womb-to-tomb employment and gotten a lot more complicated. Today’s Americans have to be much more proactive with their finances. In this day and age, saving isn’t enough. Make sure your money is working as hard as you work for it.

There are a lot of concerns for the future. Buying a home. Sending kids to college. Making sure that your current career will be around to see you to retirement. People are living longer, so their retirement money has to go farther. Many high costs associated with medical care aren’t covered by Medicare, such as many prescriptions and long-term care. Pensions are no longer viable option for most Americans, and Social Security, a program that was never intended to replace income, no longer provides the level of security people need for their future. There’s a lot to prepare for.

Due to these concerns on the path to financial independence, people need to be mindful of their money. Even the most conservative Americans need to do more than contribute to a standard savings account, which can’t keep up with the rate of inflation. Investing your money will grow it exponentially faster than simply saving due to the power of compound interest. Yet, preparing for the future can be very emotional work. Today’s retirement planning relies far more on the decisions made by an individual rather than a company or organization, which can be a lot of pressure. Fears of not having enough money, a very common concern, can cloud decisions and can prompt people to react rather than plan. This is why an objective third party is necessary. Financial advisors can see past the emotions and help you plan your path to your financial freedom.

In this day and age, there are real and unique concerns that can derail you from the path to your financial independence. Trilogy Financial is here to help you establish your goals and invest your money to help get you where you want to go. It is our mission to ensure that every American, from Main Street to Wall Street, has access to great planning and the tools to establish their financial independence.
