Howard works closely with ultra-high-net-worth individuals, entrepreneurs, executives and family offices whose needs have evolved to a more sophisticated set of requirements. He is a seasoned advisor with a career spanning more than three decades, and is proud of his reputation for delivering high-touch service and helping clients to successfully execute a customized goals-based wealth plan.

Growing up in Ridgewood, New Jersey, Howard was surrounded by a community of Wall Street executives. Howard's father had a long career in financial services, highlighted by founding Merrill Lynch Bank and Trust in 1985. This upbringing led him to develop an early understanding and passion for the financial markets.

Howard attended the University of Southern California, where he majored in Economics. His professional path was then forged at Alex. Brown & Sons, where he played an influential role for more than 15 years. He also held stints at UBS and Merrill Lynch before joining J.P. Morgan in 2022.

A resident of Pacific Palisades in Southern California, Howard is raising three children, all of whom are currently studying on the East Coast: a freshman at St. George's boarding school, a freshman at the University of Richmond and a sophomore at Bucknell University. He believes in giving back to his community and serves on the board of the L.A. Police Foundation. In his free time, Howard enjoys playing golf, skiing, openwater swimming, and spending time with family at his summer home in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
