Always striving to do right by the clients we serve.
It’s important you feel you can trust a financial team to consider a wide variety of possible solutions, including both investment and insurance products, before considering any recommendations. You also want to have confidence the advice and recommendations provided has your interests in mind.
Teboda & Associates is proud to serve clients and their families in an independent capacity.
As an independent financial firm, Teboda & Associates is not forced to sell only the proprietary products of a single financial institution. Rather, the team has access to a large selection of possible solutions from an array of different financial institutions to help clients work toward their financial goals.
The Investment Adviser Representatives at Teboda & Associates have a fiduciary standard of care when providing investment advice which means the advice must be in the best interest of the client with any conflicts of interest fully disclosed to the client for the duration of the client-advisor relationship. Insurance products are sold based on the suitability standard at both the state and insurance carrier level; this means that product recommendations must meet the stated financial needs and objectives of the client at that time. Our advisors — Jack Teboda, Kevin Sanders and Amanda Jager — completed extensive testing to become Registered Investment Advisors.
Teboda & Associates was built on a solid foundation of always striving to do right by the clients we serve. That’s why Jack first started the independent financial firm, and now decades later, it’s still the same reason he comes into work every day. He enjoys helping others achieve confidence in their retirement futures, and he has built a team around him who share the same goal of providing valuable guidance through exceptional service.
