James “Jake” Tate, Jr., CFP®

Financial Advisor

Jake joined the Green Fairways Financial team in July 2015. As a financial advisor, his focus in the practice is working with Millennials to help them prepare for their future retirement. Being a Millennial, Jake understands the impact the Great Recession has had on his peers.

In working with clients, his first step is creating an Envision® Investment Plan that takes into consideration their goals and objectives. Additionally, Jake is an Apprentice portfolio manager in the Private Investment Management (PIM) program1 and works closely with James Tate, Sr, CFP® in researching and managing the practice’s portfolios. As part of the Green Fairways Team, he provides comprehensive insurance reviews for clients determining life insurance and long-term-care needs. Jake was born and raised in Venice and is a fifth generation Floridian. He enjoys all the great things Florida has to offer; he loves fishing, boating and golfing. Jake and his wife, Jillian, who also grew up in Venice, are both actively involved in the community. They are both mentors with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Suncoast.
