Jonathan Moffat

Founder and CEO

Jonathan Moffat came to the world of wealth management with a very personal history. From a young age, he saw his grandfather enjoy great business as a successful orthodontist, and later, lose virtually all of his wealth due to poorly coordinated advice. This experience sparked Jonathan’s passion for helping dentists avoid the same pitfalls he saw his grandfather make.

Jonathan’s broad and continuing education spans both finance and business at institutions including University of California – Irvine and Brigham Young University, as well as an Executive Education program (in Investment and Retirement Strategies) at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. Jonathan has taught on the subjects of estate, tax and retirement planning at various colleges and universities.

Outside of work, Jonathan enjoys travel and community involvement through Rotary and coaching his children’s soccer teams. He and his wife Deborah have four children.
