As a youth, Greg collected stamps, sports memorabilia and other investments he felt would appreciate over time. His passion for investing spilled over to Wall Street one day while sitting down at the kitchen table with his grandfather. After spending hours researching various stocks, Greg vividly remembers his grandfather saying, “With the right tools son, you can do anything in life!” As a result, Greg purchased his first stock at the age of 18. His fascination with the capital markets along with the goal of helping others led Greg to the finance industry.
