Jim McPartland, CLU, ChFC


Jim specializes in all areas of personal financial planning,* but his primary goal is to educate his clients on the possibilities and create a plan to meet their individual needs and goals. Jim graduated from the University of Iowa and earned the designations of Chartered Life Underwriter, Chartered Financial Consultant, and Life Underwriting Training Council Fellow. In recognition of his service, Jim is a consistent winner of the National Quality Award from the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors.

If Jim isn’t in the office talking to clients about protecting their future, there’s a good chance you’ll find him out on the golf course with his wife. Jim is not only an avid player, but the co-founder and tournament chairmen of the prestigious Greater Cedar Rapids Open.

Bob Payne, CLTC


Bob is a veteran in the insurance industry with experience at the home office level as well as in the field. He specializes in comprehensive personal planning, with an emphasis on retirement income, and long-term care planning. Bob currently maintains his life and health licenses as well as his long-term care certification (CLPC). Prior to his insurance career, he worked in the broadcast and marketing communications industries.

Bob takes great pride in helping people through transition periods in their life. Whether the transitions are welcome ones like a new job, marriage, retirement, or sending children to college, or unwelcome ones like divorce, death, or disability, Bob wants his clients to feel comfortable that their vision for the future has been secured by solid planning and personalized solutions.  Bob’s goal is to give clients a clear understanding of complicated variables at play so that they can feel confident in the decisions they’re making.

When Bob isn’t hard at work, you can find him behind the microphone announcing local high school sporting events, playing saxophone in the Hawkeye Alumni Marching Band or singing with his church’s praise choir.

Bob and his wife are also active foster parents, providing a temporary, stable homes for area children-in-need for over ten years.

Donna S. Littrel Barnard, CLU®, ChFC®


It all starts with YOUR financial goals. As a Financial Advisor, I meet with clients to determine their financial objectives and goals, income, expenses, insurance coverage, tax status, risk tolerance and other information needed to develop a financial plan. Our team develops a customized financial strategy for each clients' financial needs. We educate clients and answer questions about investment options and potential risks. A holistic approach helps to plan for specific circumstances, such as education expenses, retirement income, or planning for heath care costs. We monitor clients’ accounts and determine if changes are needed to accommodate life changes. Our focus is to bring financial order to the lives of individuals and businesses. 

If you see wisdom in this approach or desire simplicity in today's complex financial world, I welcome the chance to help you.
