Meet our Financial Advisor, Jim Benages


Jim is not your typical Wealth Advisor. Jim’s clients know he has their best interest at heart and that every question they ask will receive an honest, straightforward answer. Having been in the financial services industry since 1994, it was the financial crisis of 2008 that propelled Jim to be a Wealth Advisor in 2010. Seeing how advisors helped clients navigate through the volatility of the market at that time spoke to Jim’s always upbeat outlook. To Jim, showing clients the possibilities of achieving their dream of retirement is exceptionally gratifying. Whether Jim’s client is a recent college graduate or just about to retire, he enjoys meeting and exceeding their expectations with a financial plan as their roadmap to success.
When Jim is not guiding clients to their financial goals, you might find him at his weekly Rotary meeting. He has passionately been involved with the Rotary Club of Lake in the Hills for a few years and currently serves as assistant district governor. Jim is also actively involved in the McHenry Chamber of Commerce where he serves as an ambassador. His involvement in youth hockey for the last ten years has come to an end with his son Jimmy’s graduation from Crystal Lake South High School. Jimmy started at Belmont University in Nashville so Jim is making Nashville a favorite place to visit.
Originally from Elmwood Park, Jim moved out to McHenry County in 1994 with his wife Denise. Denise owns HR Midwest so they both stay pretty busy. Jim and Denise enjoy spending time together exploring new restaurants and if weather permits finding a patio with a view to enjoy a cocktail. They also have a French Bulldog named Hattie with a personality that never stops cracking them up.
