I’ve been on the path to co-founding Curated Wealth Partners since my father began taking me to his first store in Brooklyn, a newsstand, at the age of 5. Working in his stores is where I got my start learning, and loving, to help people. Ultimately, that is the core of our business.
I started in the wealth management business thirteen years ago. Prior to that, I spent over a decade working in finance. During that time I worked in the international equity markets, helped launch companies in investment banking, institutional equity research, venture capital and asset management, and completed my MBA.
The diverse skills I acquired over those years have been important. However, it is my enthusiasm for learning from, and relating to, my clients that has earned their trust. Clients know that I am genuinely interested in their well-being, and that of their families.
They know that I will listen more than I talk, ask good questions, and that I will work hard to help them succeed in the next phase of life. That could involve selling their company, buying a new business, establishing a charitable foundation, or readying their children and grandchildren to receive the substantial wealth they’ve built. Over the years, I’ve helped clients with all of these issues, and more.
I’m excited and grateful to be on this next leg of the journey, one that started when I could barely reach the countertop at that newsstand. Of course, I couldn’t do it without the help of my wife, Andrea, who inspires me to stay grounded and focused on what is truly meaningful in life. We live in Manhattan Beach with our two children and two dogs, and if we aren’t running or biking around the neighborhood, we’re thinking about the next ski season.
