What do you enjoy most about wealth management?
The variety. We do so many things for our clients and no client family is the same. While I've built a solid foundation, the learning is constant!
What is the biggest challenge of working in wealth management?
The emotional nature of the investment markets and of investors. We're all programmed to make poor investment decisions (buy high and sell low) and helping our clients maintain this discipline can be challenging.
What is your favorite book or what’s the most influential book you’ve read?
My favorite book of late has been Boys in the Boat, but a more influential book I read during grad school was Great by Choice (by Jim Collins).
