Larry Angst was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio where he attended The University Of Cincinnati and graduated with honors with a B.A. in business administration. He pursued a career in department store retailing where he quickly rose through the ranks to eventually achieve the position of executive vice-president and chief merchandising officer.  He left the retailing industry in 2000 to pursue a career in wealth management as a financial advisor. His experience and relationships with financially successful individuals taught him that most people did not do well investing in the stock market and did not have a solid financial plan. It was important for him to pursue a career that would allow him to make a positive contribution to the welfare of others.   

Larry's top priority is to truly know and understand his client's financial needs, priorities and goals. He is client-centric driven and considers his work as a financial advisor to his clients to be an awesome and very serious responsibility.

Larry enjoys golf, working out and his involvement in his church where he is an active participant in it's growth.
