For Anthony, entering the financial industry at the beginning of those turbulent times was a baptism by fire.

His career achievements are built on a foundation of education, with an MBA already and a Doctorate in Finance within grasp. He adds a key perspective to the Galene Financial team of advisors. He has provided academic literature for financial and non-financial magazines, publications, websites, and been an expert guest on radio shows. Today, Anthony is instrumental in helping families, individuals, and businesses within The Greater Houston Area pursue their financial goals. He likes to donate his time to both charitable and non-charitable organizations and events when called upon, to stay active in the community. He does this and balances a family of his own.
His philosophy is to provide time tested investment advice that will reduce a client?s risk, and still provide them with consistent and competitive investment returns in the short and long term.
