Sr. Wealth Advisor
Ian has always been passionate about creating detailed plans and analyzing data. It was not until he started taking care of his ailing grandparents, that he recognized his innate abilities for financial advising. This eventually led to the partnership at his former firm, HCO Private Wealth, with the vision of creating a one-stop shop for all his client’s financial needs. Ian believes an investment means nothing without a plan. He starts every relationship by mapping out the client’s goals before determining what investments are appropriate. Ian graduated from Virginia Tech with a bachelor’s degree in Finance. He earned his Chartered Financial Analyst® certification in 2015. The CFA® certification is regarded as the preeminent certification in the global financial industry based on its rigorous focus on portfolio management, financial analysis, and ethical & professional standards. At HCO, he worked his way up to Managing Partner before the firm merged with Mercer Advisors in 2022. Outside of Mercer Advisors, Ian enjoys woodworking, gardening, and spending time with his wife, two children, and dog.
