What We Do

Collaborative Wealth Management

You have dreams for the future. But what will it take to get you there? Life is unpredictable, so how do you plan for its twists and turns? What steps should you take to protect yourself, provide for your family, and build the life you want?

These are the questions that JJ Burns is here to help you answer. We work with you to clarify not just your financial goals, but what it means to live life on your terms. We look at everything: your family, your career, the causes you care about, your retirement goals, the legacy you hope to leave. Then we chart a course to get you there—one that covers all financial gaps, so you can move forward with confidence.

That’s the philosophy behind our collaborative wealth management approach.

How Collaborative Wealth Management Can Help You Live the Life You Want

Successful wealth management involves much more than just investment planning. It’s about coordinating and guiding every element of your financial life, from your business to your family, and everything in between.

Retirement goals. Insurance risks. Tax concerns. Charitable giving. Estate planning.

Each piece is part of a larger picture: one that’s interdependent, highly-complex, and ever evolving. Change one, and the effects may ripple out in ways that are unexpected. The only way to manage all these moving pieces as a strategic, cohesive whole is through teamwork, relationship building, and strong leadership.

That’s what our collaborative approach is designed to do.

At JJ Burns, we work closely not only with you, but with everyone in your financial circle—including family members, business partners, accountants, attorneys, and other professional advisors. Like a conductor leading an orchestra, we oversee and direct the entire effort, ensuring that every member of the team is playing in harmony.

We ask the tough questions, facilitate meaningful dialogue, and map out truly comprehensive, customized strategies based on your values and priorities. Throughout the process, we coordinate with all of your outside advisors. The goal is to develop a unified plan that protects all your diverse interests, ensures gaps are covered, and solves critical problems while preventing unintended consequences. And we continue our oversight once the plan is in place, so you can be sure that everyone is working synergistically and nothing will slip through the cracks. It’s a truly collaborative effort built on transparency, accountability, and efficiency.

One team. Fully united. Led by JJ Burns. Working together seamlessly and skillfully for your greater good.
