Sophisticated wealth management to serve your individual needs
For more than 25 years Douglas has served the Investment and Financial Planning needs of Corporate Executives, Private Business Owners and Individuals experiencing liquidity events.
Douglas’ clients often share two distinct challenges: Their dedication to performing work duties limits their time available for personal financial planning; and the strategies needed to solve their financial circumstances tend to be complex.
To address these challenges Douglas delivers the resources of a Global Financial Services Firm with a boutique touch. This approach reminds Douglas of his Corporate Executive clients who describe their own business models as “big firm resources with small firm attention”.
While Douglas’ practice is rooted in comprehensive financial planning, his most common initial engagements include Maximizing Executive Benefits and addressing Concentrated Equity Positions.
Douglas began his career in 1997 graduating from Morgan Stanley’s Flagship Training Program for Financial Advisors at World Trade Center II, New York. In 2001 he joined Howe Barnes Hoefer & Arnette, a Chicago based investment firm. Douglas joined Raymond James in 2011 after its acquisition of Howe Barnes Hoefer & Arnette.

Whether planning to build a home by the lake or help your daughter launch a business, you need a well-conceived plan in order to succeed. Pursuing financial independence is no different. Whether you’re looking to grow your money over time, generate income in retirement or preserve wealth for future generations, confidence in your financial plan comes with knowing your assets are invested well.
Our team of professionals unlocks a number of choices for your portfolio. We offer experienced guidance for selecting alternative investments, separately managed and unified managed accounts, managed discretionary accounts, wrap accounts, structured products and options, along with traditional offerings such as equities, fixed income, annuities, mutual funds and exchange-traded funds.
One of the most important functions we serve is helping to protect all you have worked to build. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to help. It takes the right approach, as well as steadfast discipline and diligence, to assess the risks that could derail your life goals and build a contingency plan to help limit the effects. As your experienced guide, we assess where your risk lies and determine your level of comfort with it, exploring what actions and plans to put in place to provide the level of protection you need and deserve.
Estate, Charitable Giving & Trust
One of life’s greatest rewards is sharing your wealth with others. Managing assets to take care of one’s own needs and wants is one thing, but it takes additional planning and knowledgeable guidance to help ensure your financial legacy makes an enduring difference in the lives of loved ones or a favorite charity.
