Born and raised in Westchester, CA, Cameron initially joined Laine Wealth Management as an intern after graduating from the University of California, Berkeley in 2017 with a B.S. in Environmental Economics and Policy. He was drawn to the wealth management field through the idea of making a long-lasting, sustainable impact in one’s life and hopes to expand upon this thematic focus by building up the ESG-focused investment profile of our clients and LWM as a whole. His primary goal as an advisor is to educate and empower clients to “help them help themselves” and establish confidence in their financial future.
Cameron was a member of LPL Financial’s inaugural Independent Advisor Institute program, where he was trained directly by LPL over a 12-month period from May 2018 to May 2019. Through this program, he obtained his Series 7 and 66 registrations held through LPL and ultimately has the general ambition to obtain CFP qualification, as well as certificates in the ESG-investing space.
He is an avid sports fan who loves playing, discussing, and consuming anything in the wide world of sports, with Liverpool Football Club, the Los Angeles Dodgers, Lakers, and Rams as his favorite teams. Other hobbies include hiking, spending time with his dog, traveling, fitness, and a new-found love for cooking.
