John graduated from the University of Baltimore with an MBA in finance and he has been in the investment business since 1993. John truly enjoys the relationships that he builds with each and every one of his clients. His main areas of focus include helping parents saving for college, baby boomers, those who are in need of determining a new start or in a career transition and putting people in the position to retire and stay retired. In fact, one of John’s mottos is, “Retirement is the longest vacation you’ll ever take and I’d like for you to leave on that vacation and not come back.” His hard work and love of finance is what eventually developed into the creation of DAY Financial Group.
