about sachs financial
At Sachs Financial we know how hard you have worked in order to put funds aside for retirement. We understand that you do not want to risk losing your principal in a challenging market. And we realize that today’s retirement options can be complex and hard to understand.
We focus on insurance based planning and believe that everyone should keep some of their money in a place where the principal is protected from loss when the market declines. What if you could purchase an insurance product that is not exposed to stock market risk but may get gains when a stock market index rises, with no stock market losses causing your principal to be reduced?

We believe products like this may fit the goals of someone in situations similar to yours, and we provide a simple approach that can give you a working understanding of them. We provide a no-obligation, customized analysis of your situation to help you develop a better understanding of your retirement goals, financial capabilities, and options available to increase your confidence in your retirement strategies.

Jeff Sachs
Financial professional and founder of Sachs Financial
Retirement used to be easy. You worked at a company for 30 years, they gave you a watch and a pension. Then, it got complicated. Gone was the pension, and in its place, the 401(k). Overnight, the burden of planning and the responsibility of managing this income suddenly switched without you even knowing it.
Now, instead of an employer making investment decisions for your retirement, it’s up to you to choose where to invest, what strategies to use, and how much risk to take. Questions can arise that you might not have answers for: How do I know if I’ll run out of money? Can I retire early? If I don’t have one, how do I create a private pension?
My name is Jeff Sachs, and since 2010, I’ve dedicated my career to helping people get answers to these questions. If you live in Greater St. Louis, you may have seen or heard me on the ABC show “Retire Safe St. Louis”; as a financial expert on CBS and NBC; and on the “Dave Glover Show” and the “Charlie Brennan and Amy Marxkors Show” on KMOX 1120 AM. My message is that you can retire safely, and it doesn’t have to be that hard. I show my clients that retirement requires a different way of thinking. It’s about using your portfolio to create the right income.
Our income planning process is similar to the way the Mississippi River went from a small stream you can walk across to the mighty river you need a bridge to cross. Several tributaries or streams feed into it as it works its way from northern Minnesota to the Gulf Shore. The same concept should be applied to your retirement income. We need to establish several income streams to develop your retirement plan. Once we do that, you get to have fun with the rest of your money to create a retirement picture that excites you. And isn’t that ultimately the goal of being retired?
A Little Bit About Me.
Some financial advisors seem more concerned about the portfolio amount and assets of their clients then they are about helping them retire, but I’ve always drawn great satisfaction from helping everyone reach their retirement with security and peace of mind
Our office mission is to give back to our clients and the community. We are proud to host an annual fundraiser that donates over 1,000 pounds of food to the St. Louis Area Food Bank. Personally, I’ve enjoyed training and coaching a cycling team to complete a 100-mile bike ride around Lake Tahoe to fundraise for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Gateway Chapter. Pedal the Cause, Bike MS, and the Parkinson Foundation are just some of the other charities we actively support.
When I’m away from the office, my wife and I love spending time with our two children. We believe in experiences as rewards, and love to take them on hikes all over the state and on road trips to the Lake of the Ozarks. Personally, I love cooking, recently started brewing my own beer, and even host a craft beer and retirement podcast called “The Hoppy Retirement.”
