Don’t settle for an advisor that doesn’t get you.


Most people will settle for standard financial advice. But if you’re a high-achieving professional, that can leave you frustrated and unsure if you trusted the right people with your finances. As a professional trader, you understand the market moves up and down and you need a financial advisor that knows the high-stress and fast-paced world you live in. Let’s face it- there’s nothing standard about you. You’ve got big goals to meet and you need to know someone has your back.


As a successful entrepreneur and trader, Michael recognized the mindset and motivation needed to accumulate wealth was (and is) much different from the one necessary to preserve it. This is a lesson he saw many other professionals and entrepreneurs fail to learn, which is why Michael started Cogent Strategic Wealth.
