Chris believes that achieving financial success does not always simplify life. In fact, affluence generally increases the complexity of the decision-making process. The greater one’s wealth, the more time and knowledge must be invested in maintaining its growth, protection and ultimate distribution.
Chris has found that the media bombards us with generalized advice to the general population, which isn’t always correct advice or personalized to the individual. The ideal solution is a wealth management firm that can help define and achieve each client’s unique, long-term goals through a comprehensive, holistic program of investments, tax planning, asset allocation, risk management, insurance, retirement planning and estate planning.
Chris and his team at Swarthmore Financial help provide that solution...in an independent, objective and integrated fashion. A single-source wealth management firm for successful executives, affluent individuals, and business owners, Chris provides oversight and strategic management of every aspect of his clients` financial lives. For corporate clients, Chris and the team advise them on benefit programs and qualified plans for their employees, including customized carve-out programs for senior executives.
Chris graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics in 2006. While attending the University, he played varsity basketball for the Fighting Blue Hen’s. Upon graduation, Chris launched his financial services career with Swarthmore Financial Services and soon thereafter became involved in leadership, recruiting and mentoring new associates. In 2008, Chris became a Managing Associate and was promoted to Vice President in 2011. In 2016, Chris assumed the role of President, taking over the reins from his friend and mentor, Chuck Paff.
Chris supports his industry as a member of NAIFA (National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors) and supports his community through active involvement with his Church, University of Delaware, and Delaware Futures. Chris and his wife, Kristen, have three children, Stella, Luca and Elise.
