- Jordan Pope Investment Representative/Wealth Advisor
As the new Investment Representative/Wealth Advisor for United Bank and Trust, I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I was born and raised in Southern Iowa. I grew up on a family farm just west of Lovilia, in rural Monroe County. I graduated from Albia High School and then attended Simpson College earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Public Relations. During my time at Simpson College, I began preparing taxes for a tax firm in Winterset, IA. This is where I learned my enjoyment for tax preparation and financial planning. I was quickly promoted to Office Manager, and by the time I left the company, I was a Senior Tax Analyst, preparing over 600 tax returns per year specializing in Investments, Farms, Trusts, and Corporations. I believed then and still believe to this day that quality financial planning should be available to everyone. I believe that everyone should have the tools they need to achieve a stable and sound financial future. This belief is what lead me to get my Series 7 and Series 66 licenses and begin working with clients to put in place a financial plan and set them up for success. Shortly after, I joined Farm Bureau Wealth Management as a Wealth Management Advisor. While at Farm Bureau I was able to expand my knowledge as well as obtain my life license.I value the relationships I have with my clients and make it my personal goal to put you in the best position to succeed. I am proud to say that I work for United Bank & Trust, and I look forward to the opportunity to meet and work with you!
