Meghan J. Jackson Financial Analyst & Trader

Peoria, IL


I started as an Execution Correction Clerk where I learned how trades get processed on the trading floor. I went on to be a Consulting Group Technical Analyst where I assisted financial consultants with trading and analyzing portfolios. Then in 2008, I came to DVI as a Portfolio Analyst and Trader where I use my skills to do equity and fixed income trading and prepare supporting materials for client meetings and reports.

What are the values that drive you in your professional and personal life?

I think quality is more important than quantity in most things professional and personal.

What is your favorite thing about DVI?

My favorite thing about DVI is the "small town" atmosphere which is different from other advisors.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling and watching my kids' activities. Our new family hobby is camping so I enjoy that when the weather is nice!

There’s a Team Behind Every DVI Team Member

DVI is not one person. Our clients come to understand that although they may interact with particular team members more than others, there is a multi-disciplinary team of professionals hard at work for them, collaborating each and every day on their behalf.
