Financial Advisor Experience

I worked nearly 10 years at some of the world's largest banks mainly covering their Treasury and Capital Management areas. After I obtained my CFA Charter I made the decision to put it to use by helping others. I joined a local RIA where I operated as the head equity analyst as well as a financial planner. Knowning there were still some knowledge gaps, I pursued my CFP® and obtained it in April of 2020. After, I decided that I wanted to ensure I was giving my clients the best possible experience when it came to planning and that the only way that would happen was breaking away on my own. That is when I started Switchback Financial, a fee-only RIA focused on professionals and young families facing decisions around equity compensation.
