“Recognized for a sixth year in a row in Barron’s List of America’s Top 1000 Advisors”  (2010 – 2015)

I have been fortunate over the years to have the opportunity to work with many valued clients and help them grow, protect and pass on their wealth.

In a recent publication of Barron’s, I was included in the 2015 Top 1,200 Advisors in a state-by-state ranking for the sixth consecutive year. This list recognizes Financial Advisors for their professionalism, skill and dedication to their clients; something I have been doing for over 30 years.

In an effort to help ensure that you are receiving the best possible service, I need to know what matters most to you.  Having wealth can create complex needs, which is why this website you are now reading may be a valuable resource to you.  This site is updated weekly to inform you about significant topics in wealth planning and today’s market, and can serve as a starting point for our discussions about what is most important to you.

I look forward to speaking with you about any questions you may have and about how I can help you with any aspirations or plans in the making.

Claudia, Chris and I appreciate your continued confidence and support and look forward to a long and successful relationship with you.

    • "What Lies Beneath" Michael Wilson, chief investment officer of Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, says the US stock market’s “weak breadth” has many market pundits worried about the next big downturn. Wilson explains that this condition can last for years as the overall market rises at a slower pace, making it imperative to look at what lies beneath the surface in order to make money consistently.

    • "The Dragon and the Elephant" China and India attract investors because together they account for nearly 40% of the world’s population. To invest in China, investors need to be selective; in India, they need to be patient. Sachin Manchanda and Katy Zhao, equity strategists at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, explain it all.

    • "Why Gold Remains Stuck in a Bear Market" With the Federal Reserve and other central banks working to create inflation, why is gold, a traditional inflation hedge, trading near its five-year low? Lisa Shalett, head of investment and portfolio strategies for Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, says it has to do with a slump in commodities overall—and anticipation of a Fed rate hike later this year.

    Plus, look for more on equities and bonds, and a question-and-answer session with a veteran investment strategist who is an expert on China.
