Tribe of Best Professionals

Throughout my career, I have focused on wealth management from a unique perspective, one that is not solely determined by the performance of my client’s investment portfolio. My experience has shown that clients tend to have five main concerns: preserving their wealth, mitigating taxes, providing for heirs, ensuring the protection of their assets, and charitable giving. To that end, I have focused on finding and partnering with a team of amazing professionals and together with these professionals and my in-house team, I have been able to create customized relationships with families and high net worth individuals. This relationship looks very different from one client to the next and this has led me to constantly grow my team of professionals offering an increasingly wide range of services catering to the diverse array of concerns/needs of clients. My main aim is always to effectively manage and mitigate each client’s unique concerns and enhance the client experience.

You will see my top Tribe of external professionals listed here and behind the scenes there are another 50+ professionals that I team up with in order to assist clients reach their goals.
