DTP Berkeley Chapter Leader
Edward Jones - Financial Advisor
I have 30 years of a diverse professional life in international markets. As a 'serial entrepreneur' I built successful small businesses which included bars and restaurants in Prague, an export and distribution business in India; a franchise of English language schools for children in Italy; and finally a real estate investment company in Florida.
Each chapter of my professional life presented its own challenges and opportunities and contributed in profound ways to my ability to assess situations, listen with great care, identify pain points and provide real, tailored solutions. As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I have found my calling.
I take the time to get a clear understanding of what's important to my clients, then use an established process to build personalized strategies to help achieve their goals. Finally, I partner with them throughout their lives to help keep them on track. Many of my clients seek to achieve their financial goals through investments which are in alignment with their ethics. To that ends, I work deeply with my clients to build portfolios suitable to their financial goals while incorporating ESG investing principles (Environmental, Social, and corporate Governance).
While I welcome the opportunity to meet with anyone who has questions and/or concerns about their financial life, and to seek mutual agreement if we are a 'good match' of client and advisor, I also focus on two major demographics:
--Early to Mid-Career Professionals seeking to design a 'work optional' lifestyle who may have irregular streams of income (small business owners, real estate agents/real estate investors, sales representatives, etc.)
--Late career households which are approaching or already living in retirement with concerns about maximizing their investments to live a full life in a tax efficient way, not outlive their money and leave a legacy for their loved ones and/or charitable causes important to them.
