Jay Dryden, CFP®
The goal at Vector Wealth Strategies is always to provide you with guidance and assistance, as you transition from success in your career to significance in your retirement. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, Jay’s goal is to use his expertise and more than 15 years of experience to provide you with guidance in wealth management and legacy planning. He has a particularly deep understanding of both why and how to incorporate philanthropy into your family’s long-term wealth transfer plan.
Jay is a graduate of Freed-Hardeman University, where he met his wife, Hilde, and currently serves on the FHU Board of Trustees. In 2012, Jay and Hilde established the Leadership Scholarship and the Genesis Scholarship with Freed-Hardeman. The Genesis Scholarship helps students whose families have never attended a Christian university, and the Leadership Scholarship was designed to allow Jay to become more involved and influential in the lives of juniors and seniors who share his same entrepreneurial spirit.
Jay began his career in finance in Huntsville, Alabama, while Hilde finished her marketing degree at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Jay and Hilde enjoy life with their son, Axl, daughter, Lorelai, and a tabby named Titan. They are members of Twickenham Church of Christ. When he is not working, Jay used to enjoy golfing, wakeboarding along the Tennessee River and traveling — but then they had kids. Now, he spends most of his free time playing chase, hide and seek or just wrestling on the floor, and he wouldn’t trade it for all the golf in the world.
