John Paulus

Financial Advisor


John Paulus is a Financial Advisor based in Philadelphia, PA, and Salt Lake City, UT.

Working with physicians and their families, John understands his clients’ busy schedules often do not allow for extra time spent learning the concepts of financial guidance. As an advisor, John works with his team to develop customized solutions help his clients work towards financial independence, allowing them to focus on their careers and families.

John became an advisor after watching his brother Michael, whom he now partners with, succeed in a career where both personal and client successes are aligned. As a team, John and Michael value honesty, transparency, and independence in their practice. They hold seminars in both the Philadelphia and Salt Lake City areas and work closely with trainees at the University of Utah. John holds his Series 7 and Series 66 registrations and Life and Health Insurance Licenses.

Originally from Maple Grove, MN, John graduated from St. Cloud State University with a B.S. in Entrepreneurship. Out of the office, John enjoys participating in Stop Alzheimer’s Now walks, kayaking, hiking, boating, and playing electric guitar.
