JEFF BENSON|Managing Partner

I made the decision to follow what I felt was the right way to manage money in 2005, I launched Frontier Financial as an Investment Advisory Firm. My desire to educate clients about their money and how best to manage and grow resources made this decision an inevitable one. Our structure allows (and demands) that we put our clients’ interests first, due to the fiduciary standard we proudly uphold.

Our entire team works well with successful individuals looking to achieve specific goals and small business owners with unique requirements. I’ve lived in Nashville for many years and am the proud father of two boys – Drew and Jack. In 2017, I moved to my new home in the Westhaven community of Franklin. My hobbies include cycling, fishing, reading, running and walking with Pearl, my hound dog. On weekends you can often find me biking the Natchez Trace Parkway, smoking meats and cheering on my son and his team during Friday night football.

The financial services industry has long been my professional “home”. I started off as a financial analyst and mortgage broker after graduating from Vanderbilt University in 1983 with a BA in Business Administration and Economics. I found providing investment advice and financial planning a great fit for my relentless pursuit of knowledge, attention to detail and interest in all things financial. 

I continue to expand my education through the Institute of Business and Finance and the Center for Fiduciary Studies and am currently working on my next designation - the CAS (Certified Annuity Specialist).
