About Me

Hi, I'm Justin Peek. I hope this finds you happy and healthy.

If you would like to connect, you are also welcome to call me at (760) 705-1200. The personal one-to-one is what’s most fulfilling, and offline is so much better than online, where we can meaningfully converse. Who are you, and what brought you to my profile today?

To my clients reading this—thank you for your continued trust and confidence. It’s an honor to serve and advise you, especially now.

To those evaluating my services, know that I’m intensely focused on the fact that life’s not a rehearsal and precious time is our most important asset. Are you living your ideal lifestyle? Have you defined it yet? And what about those you care most about in the world, what goals and desires do you wish to realize for them?

I craft retirement, estate, college, tax, and investment strategies for a finite group of families. To do so, I use the established CFP process and my background as an 18-year Financial Advisor with the CFP®, CLTC®, CCFC® and AAMS® designations.

My parents are entrepreneurs, and from their successes and challenges, I’ve developed a focus on the needs of baby boomers, business owners, and significant windfalls.

Being 43 years old and married with two daughters, I also advise on late-stage college planning and how to cut the cost of college using EFCs, net price calculators, FAFSA, and CSS profiles.

As it relates to investment advice, my tenure during the Great Recession, then the incredible market recovery, on to Covid19, and now the inflation crisis, provides a deep base of experience for clients.

If you have a significant portfolio in stocks, bonds, ETFs, or funds, inquire about the ‘Year 2000 Acid Test’.

My retirement focus is your ‘work-optional’ lifestyle. Every dollar invested in an account, property, business, or other venture leads to current or future income for you or a successive generation. Helping you ‘define, fund, and complete’ your ideal lifestyle is my professional calling.

And here’s a direct question to test your retirement ‘readiness’: Do you know EXACTLY how much money you need in order to retire comfortably and REMAIN comfortably retired?

In 2022, I founded a ‘next-level’ firm to serve fewer families more deeply—PEEK WEALTH.

In addition to the soccer, lacrosse, and other activities of our daughters, we love to travel internationally, help at several non-profits below, hang at our home, read books, play cards, play with our dogs, hike the trails behind our house and get to the beach.

Non-profits: Carlsbad Charitable Foundation, Scripps Hospital and the Helen Woodward Animal Center.

What to expect in the first meeting

Click the 'Book Intro Call' button above to schedule a free 15-minute introductory call to confirm the ‘what, why and how’ that prompted you to ask for an introduction to us. If we offer the scope of service you are seeking, you are invited to another no-cost, no-obligation 45-minute discovery meeting to dig deeper and get to know you better. We feel we have no right to talk about your money nor tell you what to do with it until we know who you are. Yes, we will discuss services, cost, philosophy, and fit. We seek a long-term partnership with our clients. Helping our individuals and families get and keep their ideal lifestyle is a relationship versus a transaction. You are encouraged to read through all the frequently asked questions on our website!
