I’m Justin Follmer, the founder of Coastal Wealth Advisors. I’ve been working with unique people like you for well over a decade by helping them pursue answers to and strategies through some of life’s most difficult questions and challenging moments. My clients include high-net worth families and individuals, charitable organizations, and privately held small-businesses.
Before founding Coastal Wealth Advisors, I devoted valuable time to academic studies as well as hands-on experience with financial firms of various sizes and specialties. During my college years, I earned the title of United States Marine. My time with the Marine Corps proved to be invaluable to my business. We Marines abide by a set of core values that remain the foundation of how we live our lives. These core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment are integrated into every facet of my client relationships and business processes.
My academic education includes a BA in Business Finance and Managerial Economics from Lycoming College as well as an MBA from The Citadel Graduate College. In addition, I maintain the required FINRA registrations for investment advisor representatives as well as life and health insurance licenses in several states. I also earned the Accredited Investment Fiduciary® (AIF®) designation to signify specialized knowledge of fiduciary responsibility and the ability to implement policies and procedures that meet a defined standard of care. I believe that an ongoing commitment to process improvement, education, and client care remains the backbone for what clients should look for in who they choose as their financial partner.
