About the author:
Liz spent the first half of her career in front a computer. As an M&A analyst, then internal hedge fund security analyst with First Boston in the 1980s, Liz was on the leading edge of Wall Street’s boom in quantitative analysts. In the early 90’s, Liz joined Oppenheimer Funds: After managing mutual funds for a short-time, she decided she wanted to use her experience and expertise to more directly help people achieve their financial goals. Liz went on to become managing director and the head of equity research for Trevor, Stewart, Burton & Jacobsen, where she managed and advised institutional and individual clients.
Liz shares, “I went to Wall Street with my Wharton classmates and thrived on the intensity. As I learned to select and manage investments, I loved that my success was easily measured by portfolio performance. But once I grabbed that brass ring, I looked around and realized I wanted to be part of the good that can be spread with financial expertise. Shortly after I started managing portfolios for individuals and families, they started asking me other questions related to many of the planning issues that successful families face. They would share that their accountant or attorney had brought up a planning topic, but sent them to me for the next discussion. This is when I realized so many successful people are left to coordinate all their professionals by themselves in a quest for the best solutions. In 2008, I decided to launch a firm dedicated to identifying and understanding all the wealth needs of clients and then helping them achieve their goals by managing their portfolios and coordinating the best advice from all their professionals.”
