 Meet The Founder & CEO

Jason P. Berube Photo

Jason P. Berube

Founder & Chief Executive Officer (CEO) | Wealth Strategists

Coming from a long line of family-owned construction company owners, I founded Cornerstone Wealth Consulting Services, LLC to help those with similar backgrounds better understand and build wealth for future generations. The vision of our firm is to help revolutionize how the financial services industry serves contractors and their family businesses. With that motivation in mind, I work every day to proactively communicate with clients and bring new ideas to their financial experience. 

A graduate of Mount Ida College, I earned my B.S.B.A. and began working in the financial industry in December of 2009. I have spent most of my career in middle management as a director, gaining experience running sales teams for some of the largest insurance-based broker-dealers. I am pursuing the ChFC® and CFP® designations from the American College of Financial Services. Additionally, I am involved with the NAIFA (National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors) and 20|30 Club Committee, a sub-association of the Mass Builders Congress. 

I live in Beverly, Massachusetts, and enjoy spending time with my family. Outside of work, you might find me on the field coaching high school football for the Essex Tech Hawks, in the gym, or enjoying a round of golf. My other interests include Boston sports teams, listening to podcasts, cooking, and traveling.

Why Work With Cornerstone Wealth Consulting Services, LLC?



Venn diagram

We Take a Values-Based
Wealth Management Approach

The philosophy behind our approach is that financial decisions are made at three levels.


These include:
 

Icon

Transactional

Focusing on features or the price of products.

Icon

Process-Focused

Discussing information such as tax laws and financial models.

Icon

Core Values

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.

Discover Our Process

We’ll Work With You To Build and Protect Your Wealth

Cornerstone Wealth employs a five-point process to help develop and implement integrated strategies to address a family’s particular needs.


Our Planning Process


01.

Discovery

We’ll begin with an introductory meeting to introduce ourselves and discover who you are, what your goals consist of and what your finances look like.

Develop Goals

Upon determining a good fit, we’ll meet virtually or in-person to further establish your needs, goals and how we can help you achieve them.

03.

Family Wealth Plan

Next, we’ll take a closer look at your current financial standing as we gather information relevant to your circumstances and develop your personalized financial plan.

04.

Implementation

Once we’ve developed your custom strategies and solutions based on your objectives, we’ll implement the details and ensure every piece suits your goals and level of risk.

05.

Review & Monitor

Over time, we’ll meet with you regularly to ensure your plan is meeting your needs. Additionally, we will make adjustments as needed based on any life changes you may experience.

Your Planning Journey Begins With Defining Your Financial Goals

Get Started With a Consultation

Align Your Business and Personal Plan 

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.
