Jack E. Doran II, RFC, AIF®
In 1996, Jack started his career as a financial advisor in Pittsburgh, with the precept of being able to build relationships with individuals, families, and business owners without bias, and without restriction to the resources, products, services, and tools he could utilize to help them. Being an independent financial advisor has allowed his client-first philosophy to be the core tenet in his role as a financial caretaker.
Jack is a 1985 graduate of Point Park College with a bachelor’s degree in business management. As a college senior, his interest in investment management was sparked when he took the initiative and attained his first securities and insurance license as part of his independent studies. He also was an outfielder and co-captain on the Point Park Pioneer baseball team.
After graduation, he moved to Florida to pursue a dream of being a professional golfer. While in Florida, he also worked in real estate as a licensed business broker. He credits these experiences, and others, with helping him garner an awareness and appreciation of the many obstacles, both personal and financial, that can unfold at any time and at any stage of life. He builds upon his collective life experiences daily as he helps his clients with all facets of their financial lives.
Jack maintains designations as a Registered Financial Consultant (RFC®) and an Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF®). Each of these designations focuses on client-first principles, continuing education within the field, and high ethical standards of process. Additionally, Jack has completed the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) program from the College of Financial Planning and serves as Laurel Financial Group’s vice president and compliance coordinator.
Like many Pittsburghers, Jack and his wife Lori have centered their life around their kids and extended family. The diversity of the region, active community, faith-based traditions, sports, educational opportunities, and the many other positive attributes that the “Burgh” has to offer has made Western PA the perfect place to grow up and raise a family. Jack feels that the personal and family-oriented culture of Laurel Financial Group is a direct reflection of the Pittsburgh area and serves as the foundation that helps each advisor build lasting and caring relationships with his or her clients.
