Michael J. Smith, CLU, ChFC

Founding Partner

I’ve been married to my beautiful bride for over 50 years and have lived in the DFW metroplex since the early 80’s. I’m an active member of my church where I enjoy teaching Sunday school to K-5th graders. My hobbies include spending time with family, playing golf, collecting sports memorabilia, and fishing.  

Officially “retired”, I still have lots of financial wisdom to pass on as a mentor to the office staff and upcoming advisors. My professional achievements include:

  • JHFN’s ACE Award recipient (21 times!) which recognizes leading representatives who demonstrate a high level of professionalism, integrity, and a commitment to excellence.
  • JHFN's Hall of Fame in 2012.
  • Signator's Practice of the Year in 2016.

ACHIEVING CLIENT EXCELLENCE Award (ACE) was granted by former broker-dealer Signator Investors, Inc.  and the John Hancock family of companies.  The ACE award is granted to the top 250 advisors each year based on total weighted premium from the sale of both proprietary and non-proprietary protection and wealth products.  No other factors are considered.  Third-party rankings and recognitions are no guarantee of future investment success and do not ensure that a client or prospective client will experience a higher level of performance or results. These ratings should not be construed as an endorsement of the advisor by any client nor are they representative of any one client's evaluation.

HALL of FAME honor was an elite group of financial representatives of former broker-dealer Signator Investors, Inc. and the John Hancock family of companies. To be included in the HOF, inductees need to qualify for the ACE award 15 times.
