Nick works with individuals and families that are nearing retirement or currently retired. He is dedicated to providing clients with a comprehensive financial plan to help align their investments with their financial goals.

In 2021, Nick completed the rigorous coursework required to attain the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) designation. The CFA® Program is a three-part exam that tests the fundamentals of investment tools, valuing assets, portfolio management, and wealth planning. The Chartered Financial Analyst designation, or CFA charter, is widely considered the investment profession’s most rigorous credentialing program. Less than one in five candidates who begin the comprehensive program successfully becomes a CFA Charterholder.
