Mike discusses his role at Webster Five and life outside the bank
What can you bring to your customers? With my 30+ years of experience, I’ve worked with a wide range of clients at various stages of their lives and with various financial needs. I’ve seen what solutions work best for different individuals. I’ve developed a strong understanding of the many investment products available, and I research the market on a daily basis. With so many investment options and different factors to consider, from tax liabilities to fees to diversification strategies, many people find planning for retirement or even choosing a life insurance policy a complicated responsibility. With my combined experience and product knowledge, I’m able to explain things clearly and help people make confident decisions for their future.
What is Webster Five’s investment process? My process begins by assessing your financial goals, giving consideration to your time horizon, return expectations, current holdings risk tolerance, liquidity and income needs, and your tax situation. Then, I’ll work with you to establish an asset allocation plan that is well-suited to your personal objectives. I’ll manage and monitor your portfolio on an ongoing basis, providing you with the communications and performance reporting you require.
What are your hobbies and interests? I’m an avid fan of all New England sports teams.
