As a Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Advisor, I offer advice and guidance for potential investment solutions that consider your life goals, risk tolerance, time horizon and liquidity needs.
As a husband and a father I feel it is my duty to provide my family with the emotional support and financial stability we require to navigate the challenges that life presents. Understanding that each obstacle requires a different approach helps me to be that person they can rely on during both certain and uncertain times. I strive to provide a similar foundation to my business and client relationships. Given the volatile nature of the financial markets over the past several years, many people have lost faith in their ability to effectively plan and achieve their financial goals. My focus is to restore that faith and put clients back on track through the prudent balance of risk management and allocation structure within their portfolios.
I am dedicated to providing a one stop, concierge style wealth planning service. Clients leverage my knowledge and the vast network of resources I have to provide the most convenient strategies to help meet their needs. I also work with clients’ attorneys and tax advisors to address their specific financial situations and estate planning issues. This allows clients to focus on what is important to them: their families, health and professions.
My business philosophy is built on five primary goals:
1. Concierge style financial service for clients and their families
2. Understanding client’s needs and objectives
3. Providing clients capital markets understanding
4. Preserving client assets, while still participating in the markets
I earned my BA degree in psychology with a business specialization from UCLA in 2000. I have worked in the financial services industry since 2005, joining Bank of America/Merrill in 2006. I reside in the San Elijo Hills community of San Marcos, CA with my beautiful wife Jessica and sons Luca & Gianni. I am an active member of my church and spend my free time running, cooking and enjoying San Diego County with my family and friends.
Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. owns the certification marks CFP® and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ in the U.S. CRPC® and Chartered Retirement Planning CounselorSM are registered service marks of the College for Financial Planning.
I follow the deep-seated Merrill tradition of participating in the communities we serve. This drives my interest in spending time volunteering with organizations in our community.
