Recognizing that every individual brings a different philosophy to wealth, money, and philanthropy, Ethan develops financial and life plans from a blank canvas. He is a dedicated resource in the areas of conventional investments, alternative investments, wealth transfer, real estate, retirement income, long-term care planning, and small business strategy and planning. After completing a highly demanding and extensive curriculum, Ethan achieved the Certified Financial Planner® (CFP®) professional designation as well as Accredited Investment Fiduciary® (AIF®). He also holds the Certification in Long-Term Care (CLTC®) designation.
