What do you enjoy most about wealth management?

Seeing the excitement (and sometimes relief) clients experience when you help implement a strategy that sets them on the right path to achieving their goals.

What’s the biggest challenge?

The biggest challenge can be new assignments where clients have a multitude of complexity and a whole lot of different investments; all with different strategies, risks and expected outcomes. Fortunately, we are well equipped to deal with this challenge and translate complexity to the relative simplicity and provide a very clear investment solution.

What do you love most about being part of Capital Partners?

The people I work with as they both inspire and push me to be my best; our clients who appreciate and benefit from our work; and our culture of helping others.

What quality of yours makes you suited to what you do?

Integrity, as we always do the right thing for our clients. This builds a very high level of trust & professionalism in our working relationship.

How should people think about their wealth?

As a means or tool for achieving what is most important to them in life.

What do you love to do outside of work?

Spending time with my family and teaching kids Taekwon-Do keeps me busy.

What does your ideal holiday look like?

Depending upon the size of the break – either relaxing in a tropical paradise or an extended trip to Europe – experiencing the different cultures, histories and foods.
