Awards and Industry Recognition
John Friedman is an Executive Director and Wealth Advisor with J.P. Morgan Wealth Management.
A former college basketball and tennis player, he focuses on providing a range of investment services to professional athletes. John recognizes that sports professionals have limited earning years, and therefore need a safety net to help position themselves properly once they can no longer play. He relies on his established fixed-income background to craft strategies designed to help meet their longer-term cash flow requirements.
John begins with an overall plan, encompassing a conservative approach based upon setting realistic expectations for his clients. He then takes the time to educate them on how their risk tolerance, spending patterns and goals may affect their financial situation.
As a member of the J.P. Morgan Wealth Management Portfolio Manager Program, John is one of a select group of advisors who undergo a screening process to manage discretionary client portfolios, and are subject to ongoing quantitative and qualitative reviews to assess each advisor's investment strategy. He also holds the Accredited Investment Fiduciary® (AIF) designation, which demonstrates his knowledge of and ability to apply Fiduciary Practices. With over two decades of financial services experience, John gained additional exposure partnering with his father during part of his long-standing career in investment management. He maintains that his ability to inspire trust, fostered by good communication, delivering strategies and being responsive, is a hallmark of his relationship with clients.
John began his career at Cowen and Company in 1992, and spent 16 years at Morgan Stanley. He transitioned to his current role at J.P. Morgan in 2010.
