Mike is the founding member of the Crotty Group at Morgan Stanley. With over 20 years experience, he focuses on developing investment strategies for clients. Throughout his career, Mike has focused on the importance of consulting to families, rather than just their wealth. Mike grew up in Spring Lake, NJ and has very strong ties within that community. Upon graduation from college, Mike officially began his financial career at Fidelity Investments. His efforts were rewarded with a Vice President title, one of the youngest at the firm. Michael joined Merrill Lynch in 1999 as a Financial Advisor and transitioned to Morgan Stanley in 2007. Michael is now a Senior Vice President and Portfolio Manager. His focus is on helping clients set and achieve their financial goals through proper planning solutions and investment strategies.

Michael earned a B.A. in Economics from Dartmouth College, with undergraduate work at Oxford University. He has attended investment management classes at Harvard University and the Financial Advisor Leadership Program at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Mike is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™.

Mike lives in Boulder, Colorado with his wife Misty, three children and three dogs. Together they enjoy the beauty of the Rocky Mountains and summers at the New Jersey Shore. A former collegiate athlete, Mike enjoys any competitive game, especially basketball where he wins more often than not. He’s also very adept at falling off surf boards in the summer and crossing ski tips in the winter. He is an avid reader and loves spending time with his family and friends.

He is active with the Dartmouth Alumni Association, Christian Brothers Academy Alumni Association and the Monmouth University Athletics Committee. As a resident in Boulder, Colorado, Mike is firmly entrenched in the community.
