Brief info

Jim Valis is Managing Partner and a Wealth Management Advisor at Blackstone Valley Wealth Management. He focuses on providing wealth management solutions to a select group of uniquely successful families that are approaching, transitioning or living in retirement.

Jim co-founded Blackstone in 2013. He uses a consultative process to gain a detailed understanding of his clients’ deepest values and goals. He then employs customized recommendations designed to address each client’s unique needs and goals beyond simply investments.
Previously, Jim spent eight years as Vice President with Fidelity Investments Private Client Group. Each year since 2015, he has been recognized by Five Star Wealth Manager as a top Wealth Manager in the Boston area.
