Jeff Coyle served as a consultant to Dimensional Fund Advisors in 2013. He focused on the development of new methods of portfolio development and wealth management, in addition to the development of training and support materials intended to raise internal staff and client advisory firm competencies.

In his prior role, he served as the Deputy Chief Investment Officer of Personal Financial Services for Northern Trust. His position was the result of Northern’s acquisition in 2010 of Waterline Partners which was a firm Jeff co-founded in 2004 and served as managing partner and CIO. Waterline managed the assets of ultra-affluent private clients and was ranked by Wealth Manager Magazine as the top wealth management firm on the West Coast in 2010. Jeff’s role while at Northern was to institutionalize the philosophy and methodology developed at Waterline for broad distribution across Northern Trust. His design and implementation responsibilities included research, investment philosophy, wealth management methodology, educational and training programs, product development, sales and marketing materials, business process and systems automation.

Jeff has more than 25 years of experience pioneering and building multi-generational and multi-disciplinary approaches to wealth management.

Prior to joining myCFO, Jeff developed Schroder Consulting Services, a separate division of Schroder and Co., which was focused on the management of middle-market portfolios including both tax exempt and private assets. He pioneered and developed multi-generational strategies and methods that integrated the disciplines of tax, estate, insurance and philanthropic planning. These methods were integrated with a client’s investment strategy to further the objectives of control, wealth transfer and higher after-tax returns.
