I have been advising clients for over 17 years, spending many of those years working with one of the largest Wall Street investment firms in the industry. In 2002, I transitioned into a business owner, and started my firm, LoPresti Financial Group.

As a financial advisor who focuses primarily on investment management and retirement income planning, it is very important that I am able to offer the most suitable investment resources to my clients. In order to provide this level of customization and flexibility,  I have partnered with BCJ Financial Group. This affiliation allows me the opportunity to work with my clients as a truly independent advisor, with access to a breadth of investment options.

I also have access to a large network of other independent advisors, a very knowledgeable and active investment committee, and many technological resources to help streamline my business, giving me more time for what is most important – you.

Rest assured, regardless of our name or brand, we only work in the best interest of our clients. This is my personal philosophy, and this will never change.
