Justin Jenkins President, Investment Adviser Representative

Born into a family of entrepreneurs, Justin knew early on that he would forge a business and evolve a career out of providing for others. His interest in economics and investments coupled with ingenuity and a desire to make life better for people led to the creation of Legato Financial Group.

Justin studied at Western Kentucky University. Since 2017, he has been registered as an Investment Adviser Representative and is able to provide investment advisory services. Justin utilizes tools and services to help clients pursue their financial independence. He individually works with clients to design holistic retirement strategies that focus on five key concepts: income planning, investment management, tax-efficient strategies, health care planning and legacy planning.

He is a charter member on the estate planning advisory council at Campbellsville University and a contributing author in finance publications. For his passion project, Justin is a board member for the First 48 Financial Education Alliance, a nonprofit organization providing financial education to high school students.

Justin resides in Elizabethtown with his family and enjoys most of his free time beside the grill, on the lake or at the golf course.
