Ben’s commitment and passion is to helping people gain control over their financial futures. He has aligned himself with Levine Financial Group, and Park Avenue Securities where he has been an advisor over the past seven years. His clients include young professionals, new families, business owners, and near-retirees in a number of different professions. The majority of Ben’s clientele works in law, the medical practice, advertising, tech, fashion, and financial services.
By default, or by design, he recognizes that people already have a plan in place. Often times decisions around group benefits, retirement, auto and home insurance, mortgage selection, properly mitigating against excessive taxation, estate planning, life insurance, etc. are made at the specific time those opportunities or concerns must be handled. This is where Ben comes in. With the understanding that a decision in one area of a financial plan can either enhance or adversely impact another area, Ben assists in co-creating a plan with his clients to construct a plan that simultaneously quells their concerns surrounding their finances and reach their most important financial goals.
Prior to beginning his career, he received an undergraduate degree and MBA from St. John’s University and is a graduate of Bergen Catholic High School, where he was a varsity wrestler and a member of Team New Jersey for the Cadet National Duals and the Cadet National Tournament. Wrestling was and is a huge part of Ben’s life, as it taught him commitment, mental fortitude, and a number of other highly important lessons that translate into professional life. For the past two years, Ben volunteers his time as an assistant wrestling coach at Ocean Township High School.
Ben is a resident of Asbury Park, New Jersey with his dog Kona. In his spare time, Ben can be found spending time with his family, going on hikes with Kona, golfing, volunteering for Surf Rider, seeing live music all across the Jersey Shore, and eating at restaurants throughout the tri-state area.
