What do you focus on?
I manage broadly diversified, balanced portfolios, consisting of both individual securities and mutual funds, for trusts and other clients. I identify and monitor stocks in the areas of the energy, industrial and financial sectors and focus on opportunities in a range of international and alternative investments. I conduct asset class research to support broadly diversified portfolio construction. I collaborate with other investment professionals to develop and implement the firm’s asset allocation and portfolio strategies.
I graduated from Aoyama Gakuin University in Tokyo and later earned a master’s degree in sociology from University of Massachusetts in Amherst and an MBA in finance from New York University. I am a charterholder of Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA). I am a member of the Boston Security Analysts Society, the CFA Institute and the CAIA Association.
What do you see on the horizon?
The investment landscape is constantly evolving. I’ve seen cycles of fear and greed over the years. We are developing portfolio strategies with a long-term focus, emphasizing discipline and diversification.
