My Story and Services

My Story

Throughout my career in the financial industry I have taken pride in being able to explain complex investment information in a way that my clients can understand and feel comfortable with. I believe that one of the greatest values I can provide is helping my clients feel well informed and in control of their investment plan, or in the case of my corporate retirement plan clients – their fiduciary responsibilities.

With over a decade of experience in portfolio management I am very experienced with investment analysis, risk management, and advanced asset allocation. Combined with an advanced certifications in corporate retirement plans as a Chartered Retirement Plans Specialist℠ (CRPS®) , I believe I provide a valuable skill set for my clients' investment and retirement planning.

In the age of the internet and the abundance of information that is available, it’s more important than ever to be more than just another source of information. I have a commitment to help my clients understand the information that matters most to them so they will know their investment plans are being managed to help achieve their goals. By taking the time to fully understand each of my clients, the value I seek to add can extend beyond traditional financial advisory.

I often refer to myself as a financial quarterback to my clients, assisting with the coordination of other professionals such as accountants, lawyers, and other specialists to help tackle even the most complex needs concerning today’s high net worth individuals and corporate retirement plan sponsors. My goal is to provide my clients the best advice combined with a personal concierge level of service, so they can spend more time enjoying their hard earned success with confidence.
