Theodore Hicks II


Founder, CEO, & Chief Investment Officer

With over two decades of experience in the financial industry, I've had the opportunity to specialize in a variety of areas. At the outset of my career, I wanted to be a financial planner. I wanted to help clients navigate the complex world of finances. However, after going through the Dot Com crisis and then the Global Financial Crisis, I came to realize that financial planning and asset management are two very distinctly different skillsets.

Ultimately, this lead me to transform my practice into a firm that specializes in asset management. Yes, we do financial planning for our clients. But we believe a properly designed financial plan, but a poorly managed portfolio is going to lead to a lot of problems.

Outside of my professional life, I'm a family man, happily married with three children, two of whom still live at home, while our eldest has recently graduated and is living independently. In my free time, I enjoy flying as a private pilot and I have a passion for reading, devouring 40 to 50 books a year. Additionally, I am proud to serve on the board for The John Locke Foundation, contributing to the community beyond my financial services.
