    A Financial Advisor since 1995, James calls upon the global resources of UBS to help define, execute and monitor financial strategies that are customized to fit the unique needs and goals of corporate, not-for-profit and entrepreneurial clients.

    Building upon his background in institutional investment vehicles, fixed income management, property development and real estate financing, James realized that the best way for him to serve clients and build his business around them would be to join a leading integrated Global Bank with an emphasis on international wealth management.  The choice was simple – in early 2010, he moved his practice to UBS.

    James received an M.B.A. in Finance from Washington University in St. Louis (Olin Graduate School) and a B.A. in Economics from Lake Forest College. He is a member of the CFA Society of Washington, D.C. and has held regulatory, senior management and investment advisory positions at the NASD/NASDAQ, Sallie Mae, Connie Lee, New York Life and Ryan Labs Inc. James has served as a Trustee of Lake Forest College and the Abruzzo-Molise Heritage Society. He has also served on various committees for local community groups, including the Special Olympics, Washington University and Cheshire Academy. He is active duty qualified in the Virginia State Guard (VDF). James and his wife, Nancy, live in Great Falls, Virginia and have three grown children who all live in Greater Washington, DC.
