Phil Murphy Bio Image
Philip A. Murphy, CFA® AIF® Managing Director

There are two things that I have always enjoyed doing. The first is helping others. There is no better feeling than knowing you had a positive impact on someone’s life. The second is finance. I really like working with numbers. I could not think of a better line of work where the two things I truly enjoy are integral to being successful.
