Roy Janse, CFP®, AIF®, CRC®

MANAGING PARTNER

As the Managing Partner of Goldfinch Wealth Management, Roy’s highest priority is to assist clients as they pursue and achieve their unique financial goals with the utmost confidence. Roy began his financial career in 2002 as a Personal and Business Financial Advisor for a nationally recognized firm. His team delivers proactive advice to create financial independence, working with individuals, families, small business owners, and corporations.

Seeking to offer his clients holistic planning and impartial advice, he founded our independent firm, Goldfinch Wealth Management, in January 2021. From developing innovative financial solutions to managing customized investment portfolios, Goldfinch Wealth Management engages with a full range of clients to decrease volatility and optimize returns. Roy’s favorite part about his job is learning about and understanding the unique goals and values of his clients, and then crafting solutions to accomplish those goals.

Although he grew up in western Canada, Roy can’t imagine living anywhere other than Greenville, South Carolina. Between work, family, church and volunteering, finding time for hobbies is difficult, although he enjoys training for and competing in half-marathons and was a participant of the 1996 Olympic Summer Games on the Canadian Sailing Team. His ideal vacation spot is Edisto Beach and his favorite local restaurant is The Anchorage in the Village of West Greenville. On the weekend, you’ll likely find him at the YMCA, going for a jog, trying out local restaurants, or just spending time at home with his family.
