Q: Why did you found Lido Advisors, Inc.?
A: Lido Advisors was founded in 1999 based on the belief that managing risk, costs and taxes in investment portfolios is the foundation for solid risk adjusted returns. After 20 years in public accounting as a CPA handling tax returns and complex estate planning issues for ultra-high net worth individuals and families—I wanted to bring sophisticated investment strategies to a broader audience. Having run a multi-billion dollar family office for 3 years provided a solid foundation for investing with an eye towards tax implications and long-term goal planning; and coupled with years of experience in helping families find solutions for a myriad of problems—it was a natural transition to founding our independent, objective advisory firm.
Q: What is the best decision you’ve made as the founder of the firm?
A: Remaining completely independent has been a terrific business decision—and an easy one. As a registered investment adviser, we have a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of our clients at all times, and being independent facilitates our ability to do just that. With our open architecture investment services and in line with our fiduciary duty, we invest clients assets in ways we believe are in their best. As a result, we can invest client assets in a way that is 100% in their best interests.

Q: How does your background prepare for a career as a wealth advisor?
A: I started my career as a CPA with a firm specializing in the auditing and tax return preparation of hedge funds. After 3 years of auditing and tax return preparation, I built a software template that delivers up-to-the-minute capital balances for investment partnerships, I was hired to create the family office for a family office after the sale of their multi-billion dollar company— to build out their office and investment structure. These invaluable experiences taught me the importance of investing in a careful, methodical manner—analyzing what can go wrong with an investment…before what can go right. Additionally, it provided an amazing foundation for scrutinizing the investments we use at Lido Advisors—including real estate, hedge funds and other alternative investment strategies.

Q: How do you explain Lido’s Investment Philosophy?
A: Our investment philosophy is threefold: (1) preserve wealth; (2) provide solid risk-adjusted returns that match client objectives; and (3) not take any more risk than we feel is absolutely necessary. We take an innovative approach, investing beyond stocks and bonds in an effort to fulfill our objective of effectively managing risk through active asset allocation. Each client receives an individually tailored portfolio that can utilize stocks, bonds, real estate debt and equity and other alternative investments that we believe help control risk in the portfolio. We remain keenly aware of how different assets perform in varying market environments, and work to limit downside risk in order to build portfolios that we believe are best positioned to achieve solid long-term appreciation.
Q. How does your legal education background help you work with clients?
A: One of the tremendous benefits of legal training is the ability to spot complex issues and problems, and work toward the right solution for the clients. Everything about the law is steeped in spotting issues, applying complex rules and analysis to that issue, and finding the best resolution for the client. It’s the same in our business—whether putting together an investment strategy that includes alternative investments to complement stocks and bonds, or help with estate planning or asset protection needs, the end result is a customized solution for the client.
Q. What do you like to do in your free time?
A: The weekends are filled with exploring the great Los Angeles landscape, which has so much to offer. My wife and our two boys spend a lot of time hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains, and can often be found at the beach in the summer. There is nothing like recharging in the great outdoors.
Q. Do you volunteer for any philanthropic organizations?
A: Currently, I dedicate time and effort to two organizations that serve the greater LA community. The Westside Food Bank provides over 100,000 citizens with food, and I am an active participant on the Board of Directors. In addition, I am a member of the Water Buffalo Club, and have served on the charity selection committee. The WBC has 85 members dedicated to helping kids in LA County, primarily through activities with kids and grants to children’s charities.
