"Recognized for a fifth year in a row in Barron's List of America's Top 1000 Advisors"

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 2014 Top 1,200 Advisors in a state-by-state ranking for the fifth consecutive year. This list recognizes Financial Advisors for their professionalism, skill and dedication to their clients; something I have been doing for over 29 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.

    • "The Power of Three" Michael Wilson, chief investment officer of Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, explains how three separate events in the global economy are coming together to help the recovery become more synchronous and sustainable.

    • "Is Winning Losing and Losing Winning?" Perhaps it is in the NBA, where the worst teams get first dibs in the player draft. Adam Parker, Morgan Stanley & Co.’s chief US equity strategist, explains how winning by losing applies to investors.

    • "Tax-Free Yields Near Taxable Treasuries" Municipal bonds typically sell with yields below those of comparable-maturity US Treasury bonds because municipal income is taxed by the federal government. Now, a confluence of factors has created a situation in which tax-free bonds are yielding nearly the same as Treasuries.
