Portfolio Manager

Chris has over 25 years of investment and financial trading experience. His interest in economics and finance began when he was 20 years old while studying for an undergraduate degree at Biola University. Where, in the dark ages, i.e. before the internet, he had to manually phone in trades.

He “hopped over the pond” to do graduate studies, and received a Master’s of Science degree in Investment Management from Bayes Business School – City, University of London. Before joining Brightline Financial Chris worked at a family office, at which time he completed the rigorous requirements, set by the CFA Institute, to be become a Chartered Financial Analyst Charterholder.

Chris is married, with three children, and resides near Raleigh, North Carolina. He enjoys the outdoors and spending time with his family.
