Approach

Discovery Process
Investing the time to learn about you and your family; your assets and liabilities and the risk exposures, enables us to formulate strategies and customize the relationship to your needs.
Formulation of Tax, Trust and Estate Strategy
Working with your tax and legal advisors, we help analyze your income and estate tax circumstances to identify and tailor planning techniques that may be used to address your objectives.
Creation of Customized Strategic Asset Allocation
Your customized asset allocation reflects risk, opportunities and taxation across multiple entities, while integrating your investing and estate plans.
Integration of Tactical Asset Allocation
Short-term adjustments seek to capitalize on temporary market distortions. Before making adjustments, we analyze the impact of taxes and trading costs on potential returns.
Implementation of a Customized Wealth Strategy
After comprehensive due diligence and analysis of expected results across multiple market scenarios, strategies are chosen from our expansive investment platform.
Ongoing Assessment
In coordination with your other advisors, we can conduct ongoing reviews and comprehensive reporting to ensure that your strategy adapts to changing financial and family needs.

About Me

As an analytical-minded financial advisor at Morgan Stanley, I focus on creating tailored financial solutions for high-net worth individuals, families and institutions. Approaching each client as an institution, I position myself as their personal Chief Financial Officer.

I deliver advice and guidance on all financial aspects: investment allocation, insurance planning, risk management, banking and lending, and executive compensation planning. Working in Silicon Valley concentrated equity positions are a common issue. Managing these for clients is a core competency, utilizing long term disciplined diversification strategies to achieve a client’s goals and 10b5-1 plans when needed.

Serving as my clients’ personal Chief Financial Officer, I customize financial solutions developing customized asset allocations, structuring balance sheets to enhance cash flow for future objectives, and/or strategic use of cash management and lending solutions when appropriate. Through my comprehensive approach I tailor an investment strategy in line with the client’s expressed intent and risk tolerance, while maintaining an open dialogue with clients to ensure the strategies are revised to account for changes in markets as well as a client’s evolving needs.
