Even from a young age, Jae Waters knew he wanted to help people with their financial needs. As a teen, he spent his summers working at local banks in his hometown of Tullahoma, Tennessee. After graduating high school, he went on to earn his Bachelor of Science in finance from the University of Tennessee and his Master of Business Administration (MBA) with an emphasis on finance from the University of Memphis. To gain brokerage experience, he also worked at Merrill Lynch while pursuing his MBA.

Jae then returned to the Nashville area to be closer to his family and begin his career at J.C. Bradford, where he focused on retirement planning. From there, he worked with UBS in a client-centered environment, which allowed him to gain invaluable experience working with individuals and families. It was during this time that he also earned the designation of Certified Financial Planner™. Having worked in both a small, regional firm and a large, international firm, Jae has a solid and comprehensive understanding of the financial and wealth management industry as a whole. Now, as a financial planner with Impact Planners, Jae enjoys assisting clients with all areas of their financial lives and teaching them about the financial planning process.

When it comes to serving clients, Jae’s philosophy is simple—always put clients’ goals and objectives first. He does this by listening to his clients’ individual priorities and values and then tailors different strategies to meet those specific needs. When he’s not in the office, Jae can be found spending time with his wife and two children. To learn more about Jae and his professional experience, visit his LinkedIn profile.

A native of  Spartanburg, South Carolina, Tony Price has years of experience working in the financial planning industry. He began his storied career at a large insurance firm in Mount Juliet, Tennessee, where he specialized in long-term care and executive disability and life insurance policies. He soon realized his clients’ needs for financial planning and decided to refocus his career to help others achieve financial security.

In 1994, he received his securities license and became a top producer with PNMR Securities and earned numerous awards for his hard work—including being part of the President’s Club for several years in a row. In 2000, he implemented a fee-based approach, as he recognized the need for unbiased advice. He then incorporated in Tennessee FFP Investment Advisors, Inc., which serves clients throughout Tennessee, Alabama, and Texas. Working with clients in an unbiased environment has given Tony great insight into putting his clients’ interests first.

Tony is just as dedicated to his family and community as he is to his business. In addition to being a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, and has coached his daughter’s softball team and son’s baseball team. He’s also actively involved in his church, serving as its finance director for several years.
