I got my start with large financial institutions and working as an advisor in banks. As these banks grew and the names started changing, I saw their focus drift away from the needs of clients and it became more about the bottom line. I knew there was a better way to serve my clients. That is why Seagate Advisors was formed.
Seagate established a culture based on integrity, independence and objectivity that allows us to focus on what is best for our clients. As a boutique wealth management firm we can offer personalized, face to face service. Our independence allows us the flexibility to provide an unparalleled level of service.
We are looking for clients that we can deliver value to--with both financial planning and asset management on a long term basis. Our advisors work with serious long term investors that value a strategic approach to investments and total transparency in the investment process.
Since 1999, I have been helping families and businesses make smart financial decisions. I strive to be a resource to my clients by providing professional insight and guiding them through life's financial goals and obstacles. My only allegiance is to the clients and families that I serve. My clients' best interest always comes first.
