Michael McKevitt, Director of Financial Planning
Mike joined G&F in June of 2008 - just in time for the "Great Recession"! Though a difficult time to join the profession, the lessons learned have shaped how he seeks to help clients. Mike became a partner at G&F in 2017 and his role is centered around G&F's financial planning - for all clients and the firm's processes, procedures and due diligence. He gets great satisfaction in reducing complex planning situations in a way that clients are able to understand the impact of their decisions.
Mike also manages the portfolio investments, rebalancing and trading. He is a firm believer in the power of the equity markets and the importance of a portfolio that aligns with a client's objectives. He is always ready to discuss all holdings and the rationale behind all portfolio decisions.
