About Greg S. Porter, CFP

With more than 20 years of experience in the financial services industry, I have developed the knowledge and wisdom to steer my clients through an increasingly complex and volatile investment environment.

I am a fee-only Certified Financial Planner? practitioner and California State Registered Investment Adviser. Upon graduating with a degree in business management from Sonoma State University, I spent seven years as a stockbroker with Dean Witter and Prudential Bache Securities. After spending two years as a retirement analyst with the County of Sonoma, I joined Core Asset Management, a Marin county Registered Investment Adviser responsible for the management of approximately $80,000,000 in client assets. As Vice President, I had the primary responsibility for managing approximately 150 client relationships and was an essential member of the Investment Committee. Now serving my clients as an independent financial adviser, I work from my own investment management and financial planning practice in Folsom, CA. I spend considerable time keeping up with the constant changes in the market place by reading numerous industry publications and through more formal continuing education. I have passed the CPA examination, the CFP certification examination (as well as meeting the CFP Board of Standards? specific education and experience requirements) in addition to the NASD Series 7 and 66 examinations.
