Why I Became A Financial Advisor

By Jeremy Wallace

For as long as I can remember, finance has always intrigued me. The market is the greatest puzzle out there, and I’ve always loved the challenge of finding solutions to market shifts in order to create wealth. This passion has never wavered over my 20+ years of experience in this industry.

Starting Out

With a bachelor’s degree in international economics from Emory University in hand, I earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation and spent over 15 years working for UBS Financial Services and Merrill Lynch. I gained valuable experience at these prestigious companies, but I saw an opportunity to serve our clients better. I saw a gaping hole in the financial service industry in the form of big companies being unable to invest in ways that grow client accounts when the market trends upward and preserve client capital when the market is in a downturn. I, along with my business partner, Andrew Hart, wanted to be part of the solution. In 2017, we founded Wallace Hart Capital Management to offer independent and comprehensive advice to our clients with consideration of their entire financial picture. 

My Role Today

Today, I am happily working as Co-Founder and Chief Investment Officer at Wallace Hart Capital Management. I spend my days working with clients, taking a holistic approach to financial planning and investment management, seeking to fully understand their financial picture, tax liabilities, and long-term goals so we can design a road map that allows them to live the life they envision.

Ups & Downs

My job has brought me much joy, but that doesn’t mean it comes free of challenges. We all know that dealing with money can bring up plenty of emotions, which can lead to unwise decisions. It can be difficult to help clients through emotional times and encourage them to exercise prudence and patience. But that’s why I find this job so fulfilling; I can make a tangible difference in people’s lives by helping them stick to their strategies and grow their net worth so they can do what they want with their life. There’s nothing like helping people transition from a job to a life path that brings them joy because they’ve attained financial independence. I work hard every day because I love finding new, creative solutions to help my clients create wealth. Being transparent as a fiduciary, I do what’s right for them and put their needs ahead of my own.
