Program Manager, LPL Financial Advisor
In my 29 years as an Investment Consultant, I have boiled the investing process down to a simple formula; Goals – Plan – Portfolio.
Goals – The first and most important thing is to get a complete understanding of your most cherished goals – what and who you’re investing for.
Plan – Next, we figure out how much you are going to need in order to achieve those goals and which asset classes have historically been most likely to produce the returns you need to achieve them in the time allotted. My mission in life is to help people make the right kind of plan and be a successful investor.
Portfolio – Finally, we create a diversified set of specific investments within those asset classes – a portfolio. Then it becomes a matter of monitoring your portfolio and helping you stay on track to successfully pursue your goals.
I hold and maintain the following:

Speaking with people over many of his personal experiences growing up, it became clear to Ethan that majority of people do not have a firm grasp or positive outlook about investing and managing their money. Often, they were not shown the tools that would enable such individuals to effectively budget, or save for life goals like purchasing a home and retirement.
Ethan's goal as an investment advisor representative is to pair his advice, with investment vehicles, in a way that allows his clients to achieve their financial goals while helping them learn about investments along the way. Ethan's with you... for life's journeys.
