John is a 25-year veteran of the investment and financial services industry. John spent 15 years at Edward Jones, opening and building the Cerritos branch office. In 2011 he made the decision to take his practice independent, to build a less sales and transaction based business, and to focus more on the advisory/fiduciary relationship of investment planning and wealth management for clients who are serious about addressing their important financial goals. John is the Managing Member of Meinert Wealth Management LLC and is a Principal/Office of Supervisory Jurisdiction (OSJ) for other LPL financial advisor(s). John has been active in his community over the years serving on the boards of the South East Los Angeles County Workforce Investment Board (past-chair), Community Family Guidance Center and the Cerritos Regional Chamber of Commerce (past-president, Business of the Year). John and his wife, Maria, work together to serve the needs of the families and business owners they work with. John is also a military veteran, having served in the U.S. Army.
We provide planning, investment strategies and risk management to families and business owners from all walks of life who are serious about addressing their important financial goals. We do so through long-term relationships and through conservative financial principles of investing and wealth preservation.
Let us help you with your important financial goals today!!
