Meet The Team
The team behind Duncan Financial Management, Inc. is made up of qualified financial professionals who are passionate about helping individuals and families achieve their ideal retirements.
Jeff Duncan Founder, Principal
Prior to founding Duncan Financial Management, Inc. in 2005, Jeff realized Americans were not being served properly when it came to financial planning. He worked his way through the obstacles that come with starting and maintaining a business in a heavily regulated industry, and today, DFM has offices in Fenton and St. Charles, Missouri, and West Palm Beach, Florida.
Jeff is responsible for the overall direction of the firm. He is insurance licensed and primarily works with individuals who are in or approaching retirement and have a desire for in-depth financial planning. He is dedicated to assisting clients with long-term financial plans, so they can live with confidence and freedom.
Jeff also hosts “Your Money with Jeff Duncan,” his long-running TV show. He attended Mehlville High School in St. Louis and obtained a Bachelor of Finance degree and a Master of International Business degree from St. Louis University before attending Webster University, where he obtained a Master of Business Administration.
Jeff enjoys spending time at his second home in the Sunshine State.

Martha Burkhardt Resident Attorney
Martha Burkhardt is a Resident Attorney in the DFM office. She is an estate planning attorney and her mission is to provide affordable and compassionate legal services to families and individuals.
After Martha spent time working with her immediate family to navigate their own estate planning needs, she realized that many families need help understanding their estate planning options and how they may impact the family’s future. Her goal has become to fill the gap in knowledge that nearly all families find intimidating and confusing so that they may protect their future.
Estate planning, Will consultation and establishing a Living Trust are important aspects of protecting your future. With the help of a lawyer, this layer of protection can save hassle and stress during difficult emotional times.
As the principal of Burkhardt Law, Martha prides herself in the fact that her clients have told her she is very “unattorney-like” in her interactions with clients – a title which she takes as a compliment.
