Mark is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® in Denver and the founder of Infinium Investment Advisors, LLC. He earned his undergraduate and MBA from the University of Michigan and focuses primarily on partnering with investors in the Technology industry and advising them on personal financial planning and investment management strategies. Mark is the past president of the Denver Business Series and Founder of WineLeague®, a Denver-based 501c(3) nonprofit corporation that has turned wine tasting into a sport, all of the name of helping other dynamic nonprofits.
Like many start-up businesses, Infinium Investment Advisors was born out of two driving forces:
to build a better mouse trap to deliver personal financial services, and to fix the problems
prevalent in the industry today.
In 2008, founder Mark Starosciak had spent a decade with Merrill Lynch as a financial advisor to dozens of families. A little thing called the Great Recession came along and brought down Wall Street giants such as Bear Sterns, Lehmann Brothers, and Merrill Lynch (until Bank of America saved them).
Although the large Wall Street firms had years of history and success behind them, their purpose had slowly been lost to the endless pursuit of fees and bottom-line financial results. The legacy of "Firm first, client second," that got those stalwarts into trouble still exists. The recent examples of Wells Fargo, Morgan Stanley, and others remind us that there is plenty of room for objective and unbiased financial advice in a sea of just the opposite.
We invite you to learn more about us and our mission to deliver valuable, low-cost financial advice to Technology investors, executives & entrepreneurs.
