277 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10172


Offering comprehensive wealth management
I provide wealth management services for high-net-worth individuals and their families, delivering advisory guidance that covers all aspects of your financial picture. With more than 22 years of investment experience through many market cycles, I provide tailored wealth management planning, portfolio management, borrowing options and other capabilities that enable you to engage in a life well-lived, knowing that the totality of your assets are being carefully handled.

Goals-based process
I employ a deep discovery process that considers both sides of the balance sheet to gain an understanding of your risk parameters, time horizons and the financial objectives that are most important to you. These inputs lay the foundation to create short- and long-term strategies designed to grow alongside you and your family. Emphasis is placed on rigorous cash flow analysis and evaluating liabilities as well as assets to determine how they may be better managed. I find that this goals-based approach positions me to strike a balance among the full complement of your wealth management needs.

Experience-driven capabilities
I began my career at Merrill Lynch where I worked with high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth Individuals. My extensive background as a wealth manager and the vast capabilities at J.P. Morgan have afforded me an excellent understanding of the financial landscape to help clients navigate the best strategies available.

Access point to J.P Morgan’s capabilities
By tapping the extensive resources of J.P. Morgan, I open up more of the firm’s offerings and opportunities to address the breadth of your advisory needs.

  • Securitized Lending
  • Cash Management

Investment Approach

Plan. Enhance. Protect. Monitor
Most clients invest to grow and maintain their wealth, but I have found that wealth is rarely an end in itself; it often serves as a springboard toward your personal and business aspirations and goals. For over 22 years and through many market cycles, I have worked diligently to build financial strategies that help your assets work for you.

A holistic approach
I start by taking a holistic view that cares for the wealth management requirements necessitated by the entirety of your assets–from investment strategies and executive compensation to retirement planning, mortgages and philanthropic considerations. My mission is to help you manage your capital and secure a legacy for the next generation.

A disciplined process
Recognizing that every financial scenario is different, I use a consultative process and study the details of your specific situation to construct an assessment that forms the foundation for my advice. This involves a diagnostic deep-dive that looks at both sides of the balance sheet, considering expenses and liabilities as well as assets to see how they may be better managed.

Comprehensive financial planning
From these inputs, I design tailored strategies and asset allocations that align with your risk parameters and help pursue short- and long-term objectives. A primary output of this process is a wealth management plan that blends rigorous cash flow analysis with goals-based planning. Scenarios are modeled using month-over-month data to determine the probability of achieving potential outcomes.

Core proficiencies
Once individualized opportunities have been identified, I tap the extensive resources of J.P. Morgan to provide a wealth of value-added services. I am particularly adept at developing approaches to address your specific goals for your financial picture.

  • Portfolio development
  • Lending, Credit and Mortgages
  • Restricted Stock and Options Trading
  • Retirement Plans
  • Concentrated Positions

A Reputation Built one Client at a Time
I aim to develop enduring relationships that add value to my client’s lives. I hold myself to an exacting standard in the pursuit of delivering on that promise. One of the most important principles I have learned through my years of wealth management experience is that by working with a smaller, select group of clients, I ensure each relationship receives the time and effort it deserves. My differentiated experience sets me apart from other financial advisors, and I welcome the opportunity to help enhance your capital and protect what you have worked so hard to build.

Backed by an industry leader

Morgan on your behalf—the extensive research and suite of products and services available through the global financial capabilities of the firm.
