President & Founder
Jim relocated to Arizona from Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1991 and has built his practice in the Valley of the Sun for over 20 years, encompassing all facets of the retirement planning process. Starting in the industry initially working with investors to grow their wealth in the IPO markets, Jim’s practice has evolved over the past few decades. Now, specializing in wealth preservation, retirement risk management, and sustainable income planning for clients, his main focus is to add stability and predictability to investor’s accounts. As the founder of Toddy & Associates, Jim’s mission is to continue serving his community and clients with the utmost integrity and straightforward advice that is necessary to achieve his client’s financial goals.
Jim credits his father for mentoring him in the value of financial education, and the freedom that comes with becoming financially self-reliant. Jim brings his dad’s old school philosophy to his practice, that “a dollar saved is a dollar earned”, which has proven to be successful for his clients, especially in these volatile financial times. By implementing this principled approach, his clients are better prepared to shield and protect a lifetime’s worth of hard work and sacrifice, so that they may enjoy their retirement years with confidence and security.
Toddy & Associates will continue to be a source for comprehensive retirement planning strategies for those who chose to work with us.
Jim holds FINRA Series 7, 63 and 66 securities licenses, along with an Arizona life and health insurance license, which give him access to a myriad of financial tools necessary to help clients achieve their financial goals.
Jim looks forward to meeting with you to discuss how Toddy & Associates may be a good fit for you and your financial decision-making process.
