What do you focus on?

I believe that success in wealth management is based on keeping the client experience at the center of decisions and that dynamic, engaged, and collaborative teams not only provide the best service but also create the best environment in which to work—attracting top talent and fostering rewarding careers.

What do you see on the horizon?

The current consolidation trend among banks and registered investment advisors will create opportunities for independent, client-focused, and well-resourced wealth management firms.
