“My biggest sense of accomplishment comes from knowing how many clients I’ve been able to help over the years and the difference that’s made in their lives. My dad was a doctor, and as a fiduciary who also has a mandate to act in his client’s best interests, I liken my role as a financial advisor to that of a doctor; following the tenants of the Hypocratic oath to ‘first, do no harm’.”
Mike’s duties include; new client acquisition, creation of financial plans, allocating clients assets, daily monitoring of client portfolios, retirement income creation and projections.
A California native, Mike enjoys an active lifestyle which includes golf, music, movies, church and community service. He and his wife Bev have 3 children, two grandchildren (so far), and live in Rancho Bernardo, CA.
