John Henson serves Ashford Advisors Mississippi as a Wealth Management Advisor primarily in Oxford, Mississippi, and its surrounding states. He has been assisting clients throughout Mississippi with investment planning and insurance protection for more than 30 years. John and his team work closely with clients to help them achieve their goals in three key areas: retiring with confidence, protecting their assets, and leaving a legacy.
John began a career in the financial service industry after college, where he initially became inspired to learn as much as he could about the finance and investing. He felt additional education in these areas would give him a certain level of credibility with his clients despite his young age. John’s goal when he first started his career, and his continued goal today, is to help others by being someone they can trust. Additionally, John holds several licenses set by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA): Series 6, Series 7, Series 63, and Series 66 licenses through The American College of Financial Services®, all before the age of 35.
John is a graduate of 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.
John realizes that his role as a trusted advisor, to his clients means combining investment strategies along with life insurance products. Adding the insurance component to his business gives John the opportunity to help families in a crisis, such as widows, and children who have lost a parent or both parents. When one of his first life insurance client passed away, John saw first-hand the direct impact a life insurance policy could have on the lives of those that were left behind. He knew, in that moment, why he was drawn to helping people protect their assets and plan for life’s unexpected financial difficulties.
