Founder & Board Member

Jim McClendon is the founder of The Pacific Financial Group, Inc. Jim began his professional career in 1962.

Decades of investment advisory and management experience have led Jim to combine fundamental and technical analysis with econometric studies to create a methodology he calls “Rational Analysis.” Jim and his team integrate the best of these disciplines into a system of understanding, evaluating and judging investment opportunities. The “Rational Analytical” approach focuses not only on premium returns but reducing risk to the lowest level through human and digital analysis using TPFG’s state-of-the-art digital programs.

Jim’s track record shows consistently superior performance with low risk. His extensive knowledge of the financial industry and experience in economic and financial analysis ensure that TPFG will always be managed with professional expertise and integrity.

Jim has held various corporate positions including Mergers and Acquisitions, Capital Asset Management, Corporate Financial Planning, Labor Negotiations and New Product Development & Analysis. Jim brought valuable expertise in asset and liability management and investment experience with large national firms to his own business, and the beginnings of TPFG were formed. In 1984, the firm was incorporated.
