JD Hartman is a veteran of Wall St. For the better part of two decades he lived in NYC and worked on the Street (literally his first work address was 40 Wall). His time in the financial industry provided a wealth of experience:

  • Assistant Vice President JP MorganChase

  • Vice President HSBC

  • Senior Managing Director Lebenthal & Co Inc

The one thing JD loves as much as working with people on financial matters is spending time in service to the community. Since his return to Buffalo where he was born and raised, JD has committed much of his time outside the office working with others. Here is a sample of his community involvement:

  • Past President Lexington Food Coop

  • Past US Director-at-Large Great Lakes United

  • Past Co-Chair WNY Earth Day

  • Co-Chair Development Committee WNY Land Conservancy

  • Vice-Chair Urban Roots Community Garden Center

  • Member Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment

  • Steering Committee Our Outer Harbor

  • Member Partnership for the Public Good

It was only common sense for JD to combine his personal passion with his professional expertise. Thus he founded and is the Managing Partner of Signity Financial specializing in sustainable responsible investing. He is committed to the triple bottom-line: profit, people, and the planet.

The mission of Signity Financial is to work with clients in developing a personal financial strategy to help achieve their goals; particularly with people and organizations who want their investments to align with their values.
