John has met/spoken with hundreds of companies (across six continents) over the past two years.
Prior to joining FIM Group John spent 9 ½ years with UBS in Honolulu as the sole analyst-strategist for a top tier private wealth management team. While at UBS John developed-maintained-improved his team’s: investment platforms, research assets, global macro outlook, and due diligence structures. John worked directly with individual and institutional clients to design and implement customized strategies for their needs. To accomplish this John married the quantitative with the qualitative, always seeking to reason out any discrepancies between the numbers and the story.

John is a prolific reader, not limiting himself to any one genre; you will find him reading the journal Nature one day and a book about color the next. When not reading something you will likely find John sailing, cycling, or enjoying the outdoors with his wife Tuovi.
