FEE-ONLY CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) & FIDUCIARY

Jon Luskin is a fee-only CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) Professional and pledged fiduciary at the independent financial planning firm Define Financial. He has been recognized as one of the financial planning industry’s top young advisors by InvestmentNews magazine. For his master’s thesis on investment management, Jon showed how university endowments can generate more wealth (and take on less risk) by adopting low-cost investment strategies. Jon’s original research on investing has been published in the academic peer-reviewed Financial Planning Association’s Journal of Financial Planning.

When not practicing financial planning at Define Financial, Jon can be found teaching good money habits to the youth of San Diego, or volunteering with San Diego’s canine rescue organizations. Jon also enjoys homebrewing, bbq’ing, jiu-jitsu, and camping.
