Portfolio Management Director
Trent Leyda has been in the financial markets since 1996. The early part of his career was in the private asset management working for foundations and a large family office environment. He worked in the High Net worth arena functioning as a planner of logistics and responsible for portfolio management. While working his way through undergraduate school at the State University of New York he started his own consulting business. After getting his degree in International Economics he moved on to get an MBA in Financial Management from Pace University of New York while working in senior management for a private family partnership. In 2004 Trent decided to move into the Family Wealth Management Business focusing his business on family and individual wealth planning. He works with senior level executives and implements a consultative approach for institutions and foundations.
Trent is a Portfolio Management Director who customizes planning and portfolio solutions for individuals, families and executives; he and his group often become a resource for the wealth offices. While there are many options in the field Trent focuses on taking the approach as a family executive and as a client advocate; Trent prefers to work in a fiduciary capacity with clients.
Trent was born in Ohio but lived most of his life travelling until he settled into New York City. In 2004 he searched for a smaller town to raise his family and found Vero Beach FL. If you spend some time with Trent you will soon learn he is passionate about business and his family. He is married with a son and a daughter who call Vero Beach Florida their home. Trent can often be found in the evening at the table doing homework, at the sideline of a Lacrosse game or at the Children’s theatre. At night he is an avid reader of mostly market or world history. Growing up in a challenging financial situation he is a supporter of human improvement charities. His goal is to work with one charity at a time but he often finds himself in demand with multiple board opportunities.
Trent met Mike Kanner back in 2004 and discovered they both had a passion for the local community and global markets. They formed the Leyda Kanner group together in 2009 and as partners focus on their commitment to their clients and their clients’ families. They are very active in the community and both are dedicated to their practice.
