A native of Iowa, Ben began his financial services career at The Northern Trust Company in Chicago, where he served the private banking and wealth advisory needs of ultra-high-net-worth families. He joined Deutsche Bank Alex Brown as a Client Advisor and was a Senior Private Banker at City National Bank. Most recently, Ben was at Merrill Lynch for five years before joining J.P. Morgan in 2018 with his team. He is pleased to offer clients the security of the firm's fortress balance sheet and the breadth of its global investment platforms.
Ben is a graduate of the University of Iowa, where he received B.B.A. degrees from the Tippie College of Business, University of Iowa, in both Finance and Management. He holds the Certified Private Wealth Advisor® certification (CPWA), an advanced credential that focuses on every phase of wealth—accumulation, preservation and distribution. This designation positions advisors to develop specific strategies that help minimize tax impacts, monetize and protect assets, maximize growth and prepare for the transfer of wealth.
