“Because we are always acting in the role of a fiduciary, clients know that when we make recommendations we have their best interests in mind.”

Jay Flower is a Maine native who grew up in Brunswick and spent summers at his family’s cottage in Boothbay Harbor. He spent eight years in Boston after college, where he began his career in investment management. Jay takes pride in building long-term, multi-generational relationships with clients. It’s his favorite part of the job. Jay embraces HM Payson’s core value of working as a team to serve the client, and he enjoys drawing from his collegues’ broad expertise to give each client the best possible advice and experience.

Jay lives in Freeport with his wife and two children. When he’s not at the office, you might find him playing golf, tennis, or squash. When not playing sports or coaching his kids’ teams, he spends as much time as possible on Casco Bay with his family and friends.
