Ashford Advisors Jackson, Mississippi location is pleased to welcome Financial Advisor, John Henson. John has been assisting clients throughout Mississippi over the last 28 years with investment planning and insurance protection.
John attended the University of Mississippi in Oxford, Mississippi where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. While attending the University of Mississippi, he was a member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity where he held the office of Social Chairmen. John also participated in student government as a representative in the university’s Association of Students.
When John started his career, he became inspired to learn as much as he could about the finance and investment industries as quickly as possible. He felt additional education in these areas would give him a certain level of credibility with his clients despite his young age. John states, “My goal when I first started my career, and my continued goal, is to help others by being their trusted advisor.”
To reach his goal, John continued his education by earning several professional and industry licenses set by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). John obtained FINRA’s Series 6, Series 7, Series 63, and Series 66 licenses through The American College of Financial Services® before the age of 35. At this time, he recognized the financial industry was changing. He says, “Companies that once only offered financial and investment services to their clients were adding life insurance to their list of products and vice-versa.”
At this point in his career, John realized that his role as a ‘trusted advisor’ to his clients meant combing investment strategies along with life insurance products. Adding the insurance component to his business gave him the opportunity to help families, women that become widows, and children who lost a parent or both parents. John says, “When my first life insurance client passed away, I saw the direct impact on how an insurance policy could change the lives of those that were left behind.
