Your Partner in Comprehensive Planning

Our team uses a comprehensive approach to help you answer the two questions that cause investors concern: “Can I achieve my wealth goals?” and “Do I have any financial blind spots?” Our goal is to guide you from the uncertainty of these questions to feeling confident in being able to say, “I have what I need to live the life I want and can sleep at night knowing my family will be okay.”

About Us

We believe that knowing and understanding what your hard-earned money is invested in makes a lot of sense. Because of this belief, we take pride in having a “heart of a teacher” mentality in our wealth management approach. As our aim is not to be your first financial advisor, but to be your last one, we’re confident that, as long as we do what is right for you, your relationship with us will continue and the word will spread.

We help you determine your individual and family goals by discussing where you are today compared to where you would like to be in the future. As part of our comprehensive wealth management approach, we partner with estate planning attorneys, CPAs, and life insurance, disability, and long-term care providers to confirm we have all bases covered when implementing your personalized financial plan. Whether you are an individual in need of pre-retirement or retirement planning, a small business owner or direct sales professional in need of tax or business financial planning, or a recent widow or widower in need of financial guidance and estate planning, we take pride in providing exceptional customer service and forming trustworthy and lasting friendships with our clients.

Above all, we are confident that wherever you are on your financial journey, you will be pleased with our professional wealth management services, up-to-date solutions, and seasoned expertise.

Jacob Washburn  

Financial Associate, Southwestern Investment Group Financial Professional, RJFS 

Originally from Lewisville, Texas, Jacob Washburn made San Antonio his new home after graduating from Texas A&M University in 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in Economics. Prior to joining Southwestern Investment Group, Jacob worked briefly with an insurance group, serving the San Antonio community.

At Southwestern Investment Group, Jacob works alongside his mentor Manny Gonzalez, helping Manny to grow the business. By doing so, Jacob is learning everything he can so that, in a few years, he can start a practice of his own.

On his journey to Southwestern Investment Group, Jacob was approached by a recruiter at his last position with an opportunity that sounded almost too good to be true. After meeting Manny and the Southwestern family, he knew this was the best place for him to start a career and that such an opportunity might never come again.

Jacob’s favorite part of this job is that he can make a significant impact on individuals’ financial literacy. Every day, he is meeting with clients who leave with a better understanding of finances than when they walked in, as well as a plan for how to get to and through retirement.

When not in the office, Jacob loves to spend time with his wife and Australian Shepherd named Cooper. Together, they all enjoy spending a lot of time outside while hiking, fishing, golfing, or just going for a cruise on his motorcycle.
