Justin K. Peacock
Justin Peacock draws genuine satisfaction from advising business owners on financial plans that position them to live out their dreams – whether those dreams involve retiring early, selling their business, sending children to college or anything else they aspire to.
As a member of BDF’s Business Owner Team, Justin draws on his MBA training and more than a decade of experience with Goldman Sachs to design wealth management plans that take into account the full spectrum of an entrepreneur’s business and personal concerns. He balances the risk involved in the entrepreneur’s most significant asset – the business – with his or her personal investment risk tolerance to create a plan that will withstand volatile times.
Justin works well with entrepreneurs, in part because of his own entrepreneurial spirit. He joined BDF for the opportunity to be part of a dynamic organization that cultivates a constant desire to improve the client experience. “We hold ourselves accountable to doing the best work for clients, and we never settle for the way we’ve always done things.”
When he’s not serving current clients, Justin shares his enthusiasm for what makes BDF different with business owners and other potential clients. He often helps organize seminars for BDF clients and friends on strategic issues ranging from talent development to business growth strategies.
Before joining BDF, Justin was a member of the asset management and private wealth management groups of Goldman, Sachs & Co. During that time, he developed a deep knowledge of investment products and designed globally diversified portfolios and asset allocation strategies for high-net-worth families and business owners. Justin’s current clients benefit from the global perspective he cultivated at Goldman. “It’s important for all clients to think about risks and opportunities throughout the world and how to incorporate them into a globally focused portfolio.”
Justin also developed a focus on serving business owners within the agri-business industry, which he describes as a dynamic industry that is intricately tied to global economic trends.
Justin graduated Magna Cum Laude from Illinois State University with a BS in Mass Communication, and earned an MBA from the top-ranked Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. Outside of work, Justin enjoys serving on the Board of his local church, and spending time with his wife and three children.
