Chris began his financial services career in 2001 at Merrill Lynch Wealth Management. He moved to UBS in 2007, then returned to the Firm in 2013. He possesses an in-depth knowledge of world markets and economies that serves him well in his role as a Senior Financial Advisor and portfolio manager. Before becoming a financial advisor, he worked at a publicly traded company as an internal auditor, acquiring skills in evaluating company financials that he applies in directing the research, analytics and trading for the portfolios the team manages. He does not give tax advice in his role at the Firm, although he can work with your tax professionals to create tax minimization strategies. Adept at security screening and risk management, Chris derives great satisfaction from helping clients pursue their financial goals and dreams.
Chris holds the Certified Investment Management Analyst® (CIMA®) designation. He has also earned the Accredited Domestic Partnership Advisor (ADPA®) designation. Chris holds the Series 7, 31 and 66 FINRA registrations, as well as life and health insurance licenses.* He is a specially qualified Senior Portfolio Manager who, in addition to providing traditional advice and guidance, can help clients pursue their objectives by building and managing his own personalized or defined strategies, which may incorporate individual stocks and bonds, Merrill model portfolios and third-party investment strategies. Senior Portfolio Managers are provided a high degree of flexibility in constructing portfolios and selecting securities. When servicing clients through the Firm's Investment Advisory Program, a Senior Portfolio Manager may manage his strategies on a discretionary basis. After meeting certain additional requirements, a Senior Portfolio Manager may use his own strategies to manage the assets of clients working with other Merrill Advisors.
Chris received a Bachelor's degree in Finance from Pace University in Pleasantville, New York. In his spare time, he enjoys golf, traveling and scuba diving. Chris lives in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
