It's not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.
Since Jason has overseen my financial matters, he has provided me with an organized plan for both now and the future. He has shown me the confidence necessary to relieve me of much worry, which has also allowed me to feel satisfied in my search for accomplishment and comfortability for my retirement years.
I have had Jason Berube as my financial advisor for over 13 years now. He has always given me the space to ask important financial questions and has given solid insight throughout to ensure that I am thinking both short and long term fiscally. I feel like my best interests are also his, which is not all that common in today's norm.

I’ve worked with Jason Berube for over 10 years because I find his professionalism, knowledge and expertise to be unmatched. If he doesn’t have an answer, he gets it. He never pressures you and explains everything verbally and written. My wife and I are both clients personally as well as my businesses. We are more than pleased with his services. Jason gets life’s curveballs. I look forward to many more years together and I am excited about his new venture and we will be with him every step of the way.

We Take a Values-Based
Wealth Management Approach
The philosophy behind our approach is that financial decisions are made at three levels.
Focusing on features or the price of products.
Discussing information such as tax laws and financial models.
Core beliefs that serve as compasses for behavior.
While all three of these factors are important, we know that features and prices of products, as well as information and tax laws, will evolve over time. However, at Cornerstone, we believe that values do not change, only the implementation of them matures.
Impactful Decisions are Based on Core Values
At Cornerstone, we work with clients to identify their values and determine if their behavior is aligned with what is truly important in their lives. We believe making values-based financial decisions is more sustainable in the long run than if made at the transactional or process-focused level.

Family Office Experience
At Cornerstone Wealth, we serve as your Personal CFO.
As an accomplished individual or family, you’re seeking guidance in aligning your assets, liabilities and cash flow with your personal and business values. Our partnership is built to maximize your impact, net worth and overall quality of life, so you can devote more time and energy toward your family and the things that matter most.
We understand the complexities of managing family wealth and the expertise it requires to execute a multi-generational wealth strategy. That’s why we take a holistic look at your finances and coordinate all aspects of your circumstances under one roof.
It’s time to re-think what a financial professional can do for your business.
For too long, the financial services industry has fallen short when serving business owners, like you. From pitching insurance products and retirement strategies to persuading you to hand over your hard-earned profits to invest in the stock market, there has been no shortage of sales methods brought to the table.
We get it - the last thing you want is another vendor. This is why at Cornerstone Wealth, we consider ourselves a true partner. Our passion for helping you grow your revenue, reduce your expenses and optimize your tax situation is endless. You’re looking for someone to serve as a financial “thinking partner,” and we’re here to help you maximize every dollar that flows through your company.
Here Are a Few Ways We Help:
Organize and Track Your Finances. We create systems to help our clients track and analyze assets, liabilities, income, and expenses. You’ll know exactly what to expect at all times, so you can make quick decisions with confidence.
Tax Reduction Strategies. We’ll get to know your business inside and out to identify opportunities to reduce your tax bill. Our goal is to make sure you’re not leaving money on the table, so you can be free of that “fear of missing out” feeling.
Next Dollar Planning. Having a great quarter means having to decide where to place the extra cash back into the business, home projects, college, or real estate? We will help you decide how to allocate that money, so you can maximize it’s impact on you, your family, and your business.
Vendor Vetting. As a business owner, you are constantly being pitched products and services. As your “financial thinking partner,” we’ll run interference for you by vetting potential service providers, so you can focus on your business and be prudent with your profits.
Financial Advisor “Normalcies”. Insurance selections, retirement plan setup, employee benefits, investment accounts, wills/trusts, etc. We have helped hundreds of businesses successfully implement these various financial elements. And, if you already have an investment or insurance professional, we’ll act as a second set of eyes to keep them honest. If not, we can include these types of services in our engagements, so that all of your boxes are checked.
