About Palmerston Group Advisors, LLC

Palmerston Group Advisors, a firm best known for its Margin of Safety discipline, built its strategy only after carefully studying the best in the business. Consider: 1. Few fund managers have genuinely market-beating records of ten or more years. 2. Most of this elite group uses a version of Margin of Safety, the skill of buying assets when "on sale" at a deep discount to their true value. Most excel in bear markets. 3. Few advisors strategically focus on these top managers or their investment ideas when creating client portfolios. Nor do many independent firms focus on these managers when offering allocation advice. In contrast, Palmerston sees these top managers as a huge asset for our clients. We start with what works best, and thus use Margin of Safety for all clients. For client portfolios, we use the ideas and often the (no-load) funds of managers with proven, profitable records.

John began his career in the early 1980's as an Institutional Bond Salesman working for several investment firms including: Alex Brown & Sons, Paine Webber and George K. Baum. As a municipal bond specialist, his client base consisted of banks, insurance companies and other professional money managers.
In 2001 he had a deep-seated desire to apply his knowledge in the institutional markets to the retail investor. He joined a life insurance agency and in 2006 he received his CFP® designation. In 2015 the strong belief of the unique value offered by an independent financial advisor lured John to independence; he associated himself with Wellesley Financial Planners.

His 30+ year career in the financial industry is enhanced by the following credentials. He is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER, ENROLLED AGENT "enrolled to represent taxpayers before the IRS".
If you're seeking an informed second opinion on Asset Allocation, Risk Management, Retirement Income, Medicare, Social Security and Tax strategies; you'll find John to be comprehensive, knowledgeable, attentive, and trustworthy.

Iron Birch Advisors®, a subsidiary of Ameriprise was created to offer limitless advice, support and opportunities beyond most other organizations. Joining as a Managing Partner provides for the ability and autonomy to be able to serve the public in the most efficient manner. Special attention has been on the creation of departments with different areas of expertise. Areas such as planning for those with special needs, life insurance, group benefits, retirement planning, corporate benefits, minority owned businesses and an emphasis on educating the female market place. Many of the advisors at Iron Birch are past or present board members of non-for-profit organizations, socially responsible and pay forward with both time and resources. At the risk of sounding like a commercial, solving for clients' needs brings a great deal of satisfaction. There arent many instances that send off a sense of accomplishment as to when it is the result of our hard work and teachings that allows one to retire with dignity, protect loved ones and represent those that cannot represent themselves, provide the ability to send children to college and when its all over to simply get a thank you. That is truly a rewarding feeling. Finally, the partners and associates at Iron Birch Advisors® formed the bond we did and are here together because we are like family, we respect one another and enjoy each others company. At the end of the day, we all have fun doing what we do. It would be an honor to serve you, your family and your loved ones.

My passion for finance comes from a family heritage of teaching and caring for others. Finance is a complex area of life, yet in most states, it is not required in schools. As a financial planner, I have the ability to make a significant impact in the lives of the individuals, couples and families I serve. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, my husband Jim and my two sons, Christian and Dylan. We love visiting places as a family, and our kids' energy ensures we stay active.
