My passion is to help clients make better, more informed investment decisions to help them reach their financial goals. As the head of investment strategy at Edge it is my job to support advisors and portfolio managers in their desire to better service and support clients. There is an exceptional amount of noise in the financial markets, and it is my mission to try and make sense of it all and filter out what is not important so we can focus on what is.
