Read the personal message from Chris Jackler.
My name is Christopher Jackler and I am a Managing Director with Iron Horse Financial in Baton Rouge, LA. I wanted to introduce myself to you and tell you a little bit about my practice. I realized at a young age that my family did not know how to handle finances and made it a point to teach myself the right ways to save for my future. Most of us are not taught personal finance in high school, college or even into our professional careers. It has been a topic that we typically have to figure out on our own and because of that, I have dedicated my time as a financial professional to educate anyone who will listen on how to become financially independent.
As I continue building my practice, I have focused on teaching to residency and fellowship programs around the state of Louisiana. During that time, I have spoken to over 700 residents and fellows about the topics of Personal Budgeting, Investing Basics, Income Protection, Effective Ways to Address Student Loans, Retirement Accounts and more. It is important to learn about each of these areas and how they will affect us as we begin the transition into our professional careers. Every person is unique and requires an approach to their financial planning that is catered to their specific goals.
