Why 3D?

Since starting 3D in 2006, it’s been our goal to meet financial advisors, and the investors you serve, where you are. Then as now, our grounding in academics and analytics is the guidepost of our portfolio construction and strategic partnerships. Financial science aside, we also understand the practical challenges of building a thriving independent advisory practice. Developing a responsive, streamlined TAMP platform was the natural result. A boutique firm, we sidestep the operational issues found at the larger institutions – without sacrificing breadth of investment styles. Indeed, our smaller scale means we can provide you with meticulous, flexible, personally responsive service. Underlying all of this is a personal commitment to integrity and full transparency – in our portfolios, our process, our fees, and our relationships.

As Chief Investment Officer for 3D, much of my work is with the investment committee, refining and enhancing the investment architecture underlying the ETF managed portfolios in our wealth management and retirement programs. I also help advisors and clients understand current market developments that drive risks and returns.
I’m a Chartered Financial Analyst, with two decades of work in global investment management and institutional consulting. Before joining 3D’s executive team, I served as a portfolio manager on the developed markets equity team at Batterymarch Financial Management, and as a senior executive within the Funds Management Division at Wilshire Associates.
