Syracuse NY | Rockbridge Investment Management Craig Buckhout

How I got here:

“In the early 1990s it became clear to us that ordinary people were going to need help managing their substantial savings, as 401(k) plan assets began to replace pensions as a source of retirement income. After spending the first decade of my career in the world of corporate finance, I was excited to work with clients and apply institutional investment principles to help them achieve their goals.”

Favorite part of the job:

“I really enjoy showing clients how we can apply institutional investment strategies to any client portfolio. When it comes to managing risk and diversification, controlling costs, and achieving market returns, we can apply the same principles to a small IRA or a large endowment fund.”
