Charles brings clients more than 40 years of wideranging experience in investing, wealth management, investment banking and law. Throughout his career, Charles has earned an industry reputation for excellence and a loyal circle of client families.

Charles joined J.P. Morgan Wealth Management in 2023 following 14 years spent at First Republic, where he was a Managing Director and Wealth Manager. While there, he served high-net-worth families and more than a dozen non-profit organizations. Before that, Charles spent 20 years at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, where he was a Senior Vice President and Portfolio Manager.

After graduating law school, he began his professional career as an associate in the public finance department of Mudge Rose Guthrie Alexander & Ferdon, where he worked on financings for issuers and investment banks. Later, Charles joined Dean Witter Reynolds, where he was a Vice President in the Corporate Finance department. Following that, he joined Bond Investors Guaranty, a municipal bond insurer, as a Vice President in the new products group.

Throughout his career, Charles has helped families and institutions navigate turbulent and booming markets, and key inflection points in their financial journeys. Today, he builds on his decades of experience to help clients take a rational and realistic approach to their wealth and expectations. He finds it particularly satisfying to help family members with opposing perspectives agree on a financial solution.

A lifetime learner, Charles attributes much of his success to his rigorous academic and industry training.
