Our Team


When I was a money manager on Wall Street, we focused on large institutions such as pension funds, corporate accounts, endowment, and foundations, as well as very wealthy individuals, and they probably have more access to help than they care for.

But what about everyone else?

Everyone, regardless of how much money they have, needs to deal with the realities of saving for the future. Whether dealing with credit card debt, student loans, building a rainy day fund, saving for college or retirement, or just plain getting rich, WeVest has been designed from the ground up to help you understand how you’re doing today, what to do next, and what that will get you. While we can’t do it for you, we give you the tools to put yourself on the right financial path for you, without paying thousands of dollars for impersonal financial advice.

WeVest is here for your entire financial journey.
