My Story and Services


Morgan Stanley serves many of the world’s most sophisticated investors and is one of the world's leading managers of personal wealth. I have experience with the distinctive challenges, styles and strategies that distinguish wealthy investors. I work with high net worth individuals, families and mid-market institutions - Foundations, Endowments, Pension Plans and Corporations in the areas of asset management and financial advisory services.

Investment Management for individuals, families and corporate institutions - Endowments, Foundations, Taft-Hartley Plans, Retirement and Pension plans.

I offer a broad scope of investment vehicles including traditional long-only Separately Managed Accounts in Equity, Fixed Income and Cash Management; Alternative Investments including Hedge Strategies, Private Equity, Hedge Fund of Funds, Single Manager and Multiple Manager Strategies; Structured Investments; Mutual Funds; Liquid Alternative Funds; Private Placement Funds; Registered and Non-Registered Funds.  Experienced in assisting Founders, Key Executives and Corporate Officers in handling of restricted stock transactions under SEC Rule 144.

For Ultra High Net Worth investors and select Institutional investors, I will be glad to facilitate introductions to appropriate dedicated investment team(s) in the firm's Graystone Consulting and/or Private Wealth Management divisions. 

Strategy & Philosophy:
A well written Investment Policy Statement is key to defining a client's goals, objectives and time line for investing.  An understanding of risk and reward is imperative.  I focus on professional investment management whereby I help clients select professional money managers to help drive the strategy outlined in their statement of goals and objectives, or via an Investment Policy Statement. For the simple or the sophisticated investor, I follow a disciplined process of understanding a client's risk appetite and short and long term goals.
