My Story

I joined Morgan Stanley Wealth Management as a seasoned investment professional with more than 15 years of institutional multi-asset research and trading experience with prominent financial institutions.

With a lifetime of striving for excellence, I am driven and passionate in bringing my institutional-level investment expertise to advance financially established families and individuals in their pursuit of financial security and freedom.

To manage wealth effectively, it starts with a holistic understanding of you. Each client’s unique values and goals are the foundation upon which we can build and customize effective financial planning solutions. My process of working with you comprises of defining life objectives, exploring financial alternatives, assessing realistic scenarios and advising you on the appropriate financial and investment strategies that will take you there.

Combined with a global perspective, extensive experience in investment research, technical expertise in trading and, above all, passion in helping clients in achieving financial success, I am here to guide you from where you are now to where you want to be. It is important to me that clients view me as a trusted advisor as I’m fully committed to developing and building long-standing relationships with you and your family.

I look forward to learning more about you and your aspirations and helping you design your ideal financial future.

Working With You

I believe that making sound financial decisions at every crossroad in life is of utmost consequence to everyone regardless of your initial asset base. I am passionate in working with individuals and families to customize financial strategies, while leveraging the differentiated tools and capabilities that only an industry leader like Morgan Stanley can provide.


Regardless of age, ethnicity, and profession, my diverse background and experience enables me to connect with my clients in meaningful ways. As an immigrant, I understand the unique values and special circumstances that many of us face. I am here to help you and your families to maximize your abilities to earn, save, and protect your hard-earned wealth for current and future generations.


Growing up in a small business household, I experienced and understood at a young age the ups and downs of running one’s own business. Today, my team and I are especially equipped to help small business owners navigate the complex world of finance and tailor solutions to assist them in growing their financial foundation while managing their businesses and nurturing their families.


Having worked several years in a corporate setting, I can also relate to professionals focusing on building their careers, particularly the unique challenges of prioritizing goals and time management and how that impacts prudent financial planning. Successful professionals are often too busy to find time to educate themselves on the most advantageous strategies to handle their finances and investments. Regardless of your source of income, I am passionate and steadfast in helping you and your families toward your financial security.

    Experience

    During the formative years of my career, I was an Energy Equity Analyst at Morgan Stanley in New York and a multi-asset trader at a large regional investment bank in Asia. Forward to my current role as a wealth advisor, I bring knowledge and experience in investment selection, portfolio management, asset allocation and financial analysis.


    Only a custom-tailored approach coupled with high-level servicing can meet the needs of financially established individuals. While a one-size-fits-all approach has its place, the true confidence and sense of security one can gain from sophisticated design of a custom financial planning solution is what I aim to achieve for my clients.


    I earned the Chartered Financial Analyst designation in 2007 and received my Masters’ degree in International Relations from Georgetown University in Washington DC in 2002.

    When I’m not helping my clients achieve their financial dreams, I enjoy spending time with family and been active outdoors.
