Kristen Jackson leads Grant Street Asset Management with insight and dedication that has been strengthened by over twenty years of experience in the finance industry. Her journey, which began with a transformative internship at Grant Street under her father's mentorship, reflects a deep commitment to the art of wealth management that extends well beyond numbers and charts.

Kristen, who originally envisioned a future in government and policy, found her true calling in the financial world during her time at the University of Notre Dame. The shift from government to finance was a pivotal decision that not only shaped her academic focus but also charted a path to her current role as President and CEO at Grant Street.

Kristen's expertise has grown to encompass a comprehensive suite of services, including portfolio management, wealth and estate strategy, and financial planning. As a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and a key member of the Investment Committee at Grant Street, her passion lies in the details of investment management and coordinating various elements of a client’s financial well-being.

"What I initially loved about investing was the challenge of synthesizing a lot of information into a simple strategy for growth.” Her aptitude for problem-solving complex situations blended seamlessly into wealth management. “What I love about wealth management is the uniqueness of every client's story," Kristen shares. "Our clients' investments are a reflection of their life's work and dreams. It's a privilege to be entrusted with such a significant part of their legacy," she reflects.

Kristen was the first of her siblings to join the firm her father founded, so the sense of family at GSAM is literal and figurative. "We have developed distinctive long-term bonds within our team," she explains. "That culture extends to our clients, who we regard as an extension of our GSAM family, sharing in both their triumphs and challenges."

Kristen resides in South Fayette with her husband, John, and their son and daughter. They spend much of their free time as a family on the fields. Baseball, softball, and soccer keep the kids active, and Kristen and John are often volunteer coaches. They enjoy skiing in the Lauren Highlands during the winter months, and in warmer months, Kristen is an avid vegetable gardener. Within the community, Kristen is on the Executive Leadership Board of the Pittsburgh Alzheimer’s Walk and is a member of Corpus Christi parish in Bridgeville.
