Jim cut his teeth in the investment industry in 1988 as an internal product representative for a large wirehouse firm, Prudential-Bache Securities. From there, Jim moved on to a similar role at an independent broker/dealer, Cadaret, Grant, where he developed an admiration for the value a trusted financial advisor can provide to individuals and families.
In 1995, looking to broaden his investment background, Jim began a successful 23-year career as regional vice president for two well-respected money managers: first at Invesco and later at Legg Mason. He worked closely with independent advisors in the New England region and won many awards and accolades over the years. Now the cycle is complete as Jim returns to the world of independent financial advice.
