WHAT INFLUENCED YOUR DECISION TO JOIN ADVANCE CAPITAL?
The biggest influence on my decision to join Advance Capital was its commitment to treat clients as individuals. This fully aligns not only with my professional goals, but my personal morals as well. At Advance Capital, the only requirement is to put my clients’ best interests first. In addition, working here is an opportunity to help people solve difficult problems, such as reaching and navigating retirement.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE ADVANCE CAPITAL’S CULTURE?
Our culture is focused on providing the highest quality of service for clients in every aspect of their financial lives. It’s why we are committed to low costs, which allows clients to keep more of what they earn; it’s why we have a strong emphasis on staying up to date on the latest research; and lastly, it’s why those who practice hard work and a dedication to the client thrive in our culture.
DESCRIBE THE IMPORTANCE OF CLIENT EDUCATION IN YOUR PROCESS.
My primary duty is to assist clients in making smart, informed financial decisions. To do so, it’s imperative that I provide the necessary information and education that can best help them.
WHERE DO GOOD SOLUTIONS COME FROM?
I think good solutions come from those who can see the whole picture in any given scenario without bias. For my clients, it’s about focusing on their financial goals to find the best steps to get there. We work to find the solution that is right, not just the solution we want.
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN YOUR ROLE?
Success in my role requires hard work and dedication as well as a commitment to learn. The financial landscape constantly changes, so it’s important to fully understand each client’s situation and to have the most relevant information. Also, success depends on building strong relationships, which takes efficiency, timeliness and a proven ability to help solve problems.
Contacting Jared VanDenBerg
Fun fact: Jared is a longtime outdoorsman, but his best day deer hunting was his very first day, when he was only 11 years old. He got an eight-point buck. Unfortunately, he has not been as lucky since. However, today he is more focused on teaching his son various outdoor activities, including hunting and his son’s personal favorite, fishing. Time will tell if he has better luck than his dad.
