It All Begins With A Thoughtful Strategy
They’ll be off to freshman year sooner than you think. Your J.P. Morgan Private Client Advisor can help you incorporate our college-planning research to help you meet your goals before the big day arrives.
01 - Think About Your Education Goals
The first step is to clarify your vision for the future – not just for education, but all your goals. This way, we can begin to plan holistically. We’ll help you fine-tune your priorities and project how much you’ll need based on your goals. J.P. Morgan’s comprehensive research makes it possible.
At this point, you list the types of colleges you’re considering, how much they might cost, and how much can you afford to save?
Because college costs are only going up. Here’s a generation’s worth of tuition, fees and room and board (in 2015 dollars)
The cost of college has been rising exponentially for decades.
In 1985, it cost $16,213 for private college and $7,833 for public college. By 2015, costs had reached $43,921 for private college and $19,548 for public college. And by 2050, the cost for public college is expected to pass $50,000 annually.
02 - Understand Your Funding Options
Funding for education can come from any combination of savings, investing, borrowing or financial aid. We’ll help you understand the benefits and disadvantages of each option. Everyone's situation is different and you should speak to your tax advisor about what would work best for you.
Remember: the sooner you start saving and investing, the more you'll benefit from the power of compounding growth.
03 - Implement Your Strategy
Based on your goals, we’ll help you project how much you might need and create a strategy that reduces taxes and maximizes growth potential.

04 - Optimize Your Plan Over Time
The strategy you develop isn’t set in stone – it’s your starting point. As time goes on, you and your advisor will meet periodically to monitor your progress and revisit your goals. We’ll help you modify your strategy based on changes in your priorities or what’s happening in the market.
