How did you become a financial advisor?

My first job out of college was in the technology industry selling hardware and software solutions to businesses. I’ve always enjoyed the role that technology plays in facilitating business and decision-making. But, I found myself more interested in the decision-making process companies were engaged in while determining what (if any) technology solutions to fold into their organizations. A company might ask, “Do we need this”? Or, “Does the cost incurred line up with the value it could bring to my company”?. And, “What’s the best way to pay for all of this taking into account depreciation, financing cost, and useful life”? I was captivated by the meticulous approach to financial decision-making and its execution, which led me to start a journey in the field of financial services. I began my career as an options trader at a brokerage firm, followed by a role as a retirement planner at a prominent insurance company. Eventually, I transitioned into a comprehensive financial planner and tax planning specialist, further expanding my expertise.

What is your typical client profile?

I love working with clients of any background or asset size. But, I have found a niche within what some call the “Millionaire Next Door”- a set of unassuming people who have used disciplined savings and investment strategies to build and maintain wealth. A well-known study from Ramsey polled over 10,000 millionaires to help identify their “secrets”. Of those polled, most did not have high six-figure incomes or flashy job titles (e.g. Teachers and Accountants are consistently on the list). And, 79% of respondents reported no inheritance from family either. I tend to work best with those who see the value in a disciplined approach to saving and investing, regardless of their backgrounds.

Is there a unique approach you take With Clients?

As an independent advisor working with Savvy, I can fold targeted investments into my portfolios that are not offered to many other platforms. For example, the majority of my clients have direct investment into renewable energy infrastructure investments in the U.S. as an alternative to publicly traded investments but as a part of a comprehensive portfolio (these investments come with specific requirements and due diligence and may not be appropriate for every client). 
I also leverage Savvy’s analytics to provide clients with greater insight into their investments. This allows us to identify correlations, risk profiles, and other insights that allow for a more holistic view of the portfolio, which helps inform better decisions. My approach is rooted in understanding my client's goals and providing them with forward-looking advice that reflects their individual needs.

What areas of expertise do you have?

I excel in evaluating investment goals and crafting a target portfolio mix. With meticulous attention to detail, I not only construct and manage the portfolio but also address the planning intricacies to ensure disciplined execution. I take great pleasure in collaborating closely with clients, ensuring their goals are not only met but surpassed.

What types of strategies do you usually help clients with? 

I tailor my services to meet the unique needs of each client. My primary focus revolves around assisting clients with tax-efficient retirement income planning and optimizing or creating estate plans. Additionally, I provide guidance in making well-informed financial decisions by leveraging analytics.
