At Global Wealth Management we offer a unique approach to investing for individuals committed to planning their financial future, families and small businesses. Since 2008 we have a proud history of providing personalized, independent financial advice and guidance to our clients.
Why did you join Global Wealth Management?
I saw the impact Dad was having in people’s lives, and really wanted to make a difference on a personal level. As Dad was looking for “something better” for clients’ investment experience, he researched a fund group named Dimensional Fund Advisors. The firm’s early adaptation of Modern Portfolio Theory and relationship with Dimensional goes back to 1990 and continues today. I firmly believe in Dimensional’s scientific, disciplined approach to investing.
If you could spend the day with anyone, who would it be and what would you want to learn?
Winston Churchill. I admire his courage in uncertainty, and would want to learn how he saw beyond what today has to offer. I joined the firm in February 2008, so I got an immediate dose of downside volatility, and how that impacted clients from a psychological perspective. Having plans set in place before the Great Recession occurred helped them weather the storm, and enjoy the recovery.
What do you love most about being part of GWMI?
Hearing where our clients came from, how they got to where they are today, and their vision of where they want to go. Helping them achieve what is most important to them drives me. The depth of the client/advisor relationship continues to fascinate me. Through our discovery process, I get to know clients pretty quickly on a genuine level. At the end of the day, providing a roadmap to their goals is key. That road might get bumpy at times, and I’m with them all the way to ensure they make it.
What was your first job?
Mowing yards and pet sitting in my neighborhood at 10 years old. I printed up my own business cards, and went door to door marketing my services. The entrepreneurial seed had been planted. I had about 12 yards a week, and when it was hot, I’d mow early in the morning, and still have time to play, go to the pool, or torment my brothers in the afternoon.
My dream vacation is:
Fly fishing with my boys on the spring creeks south of Livingston, MT.
