“I have worked with a lot of fixed income specialists in my career and Chuck is one of the very best. Although technology has managed to disrupt and commoditize many markets, the sheer number of fixed income issues, in the millions, calls for someone with the expertise and wisdom to help guide RIAs and their clients towards appropriate solutions.”Ronald F.
“Chuck is an outstanding results oriented thinker. He has the ability to handle difficult situations and maintain total professionalism as he works towards solutions. I highly recommend Chuck as an expert in fixed income, capital markets, large platform administration and client service.”Graham A.
“Evolving market structure. New bond platforms and electronic trading. More data to filter and consume. Not much transparency. Is the pricing “good”? Advisors need help understanding the intricacies of the fixed income market and guidance to make the “right” choices that fit their business model and the needs of their customers. Chuck is that resource. His deep experience, insight and the ability to distill it down into relatable and understandable guidance stood out then and holds true now more than ever.”Pat D., CAIA
