Additional Information

Hi, I am Marvin Jackson, the founder of Abacus Wealth Factors, LLC.

Financial Planning is about using your resources to compose a life which works for you. Serving clients as a trusted financial advisor is the life which works best for me. My professional interests are focused on: investing, accounting, law, psychology, and taxes as they affect individuals’ lives. When I found the exit ramp from the corporate accounting world some years ago there was no doubt about what I wanted to do. Working with people who seek to enhance their lives by coordinating their goals and resources is the best use of my personal skill set and my highest life goal.   

My background includes: corporate and public accounting, financial analysis, non-profit business management, and medical radiology. This experience provides a variety of skills which are useful in helping people sort through life’s complex variables as we seek your optimal outcomes. Before becoming a financial planner I was a corporate accountant in international trading for 15 years, worked with a public accounting firm for several years and as a financial analyst with a technology manufacturer. I earned my CFP® designation from the Terry College of Business at University of Georgia and also hold a BA in Finance and Law, with honors, from Portland State University.

When I’m not helping people optimize their financial lives, I enjoy reading, dancing (Argentine Tango), gardening, meditation, bicycling, yoga, walking, tai chi, and sharing the fruits of these activities with others. Community activities include: co-founder and past president of the Paradise Park/Oakhurst Neighborhood Association, Health and Safety Volunteer at the Habersham Street YMCA, and Counselor with the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program.
