Austin is an LPL Investment Advisor Representative at BMG Advisors. As a young man, he witnessed the worst of the 2008 crash in Reno; one the cities hardest affected by the housing bubble. Family friends lost their jobs, their homes, and their self esteem. House flipping was rampant, prices were out of control, and a culture of living beyond one's means had become pervasive until the music finally stopped. Even then, he could see the problem and as he has grown and learned, he now understands the solution. Careful, holistic financial planning with a focus on strong fundamentals is key. More than anything, Austin wants to be part of the change this industry is experiencing toward a professionalized, independent model that is more widely accessible at all stages of life. It’s why he chose to join BMG.
Austin holds a Bachelor of Science in Finance from the University of Kansas and an MBA from Rockhurst University. He has conducted graduate level research using large datasets and gained great insight about data science and analytics. At BMG, Austin focuses primarily on helping our Prologue clients with financial planning along with building and designing financial plans within our Wealthvision software.
