About Christopher

Chris grew up in a household dedicated to helping families achieve their financial goals. His father, a successful advisor for over 50 years, inspired him to follow a profession that would enable him to pursue a profession that would combine his fascination for the markets with his innate desire to help and educate others.

Over the years, he has cultivated knowledge and experience in investment management, stock option optimization, as well as retirement and estate planning. He thrives on teaching clients how the market works and coaching them on how to be successful investors.
