John J. Ayotte CPA, MST

John J. Ayotte CPA, MST


John Ayotte is one of nine partners at Cornerstone Advisers and is based in the Naperville office.

At the core of John’s relationship with his clients is one word – listen. For nearly 15 years, John listened to the clients of his accounting firm walk into his office with misinformation and bad advice from so-called investment professionals. He made the decision to get registered himself in order to help provide his clients with unbiased and truthful financial advice designed to build trust.

Since 1995, John has been providing holistic financial services and tax management strategies to the Chicagoland area. His mantra is to always do what’s best for his clients, and to help them remain focused on their long-term goals in the midst of all the short-term information thrown their way. John, an Investment Adviser Representative, views himself as the financial quarterback of his clients’ lives and the Cornerstone Advisers team as his extremely reliable bench. Over the years, he’s built relationships with hundreds of families in Naperville and the surrounding area, and counts many of them as friends.

John believes one of the biggest challenges facing his clients today is filtering through the clutter and conflicting information about financial services and the economy. To mitigate this, John is sure to ask the right questions, set and adjust goals with his clients on a regular basis, and surround himself with a team of seasoned, smart professionals to help keep his clients in line with reaching their financial goals. John loves having a team behind him that can provide his clients with the best possible resources as they move through life together.

In his spare time, John enjoys playing tennis, long-distance biking, and spending time outdoors. He also loves making memories with his family, especially his two young grandchildren. John also serves on the board of the Freedom Golf Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing joy and a sense of freedom to the special needs community through their inclusion in the game of golf.
