About Jeff

For close to four decades, people have chosen to work with Jeff because of his passion and commitment to serve as a resource for his client’s financial lives. Jeff is the quarterback for his clients, handling both their investments and their safe money.  He takes the time to understand what matters most to his clients and applies current concepts, tools and applications for each unique situation and designs a customized program for them.  Katz Financial Services focuses on retirement, estate, and insurance planning strategies. As an independent financial services firm, we are not affiliated with any specific  insurance or investment company. We offer a wide range of financial products and services to individuals and business owners. At KFS, we will meet to identify your goals and objectives. Then, customize a financial plan to assist you in making financial decisions for your future.

 Jeff’s personal goal is to bring confidence and clarity to those that work with him.  He uses a process of gathering information by sitting down with clients and learning about their life so that he can determine what is important most to them – their goals, family situation and their dreams.  After developing a complete picture of their personal and financial situation, he organizes a comprehensive program to meet their goals and objectives. We believe our clients leave better able to understand how to make financial decisions that  will benefit your long-term objectives.
