Meet The Team

Cory Reader Headshot

Cory Reader

Chief Investment Officer

Hawthorne California


I am originally from Australia and I am easy to spot in a crowd being 7’0″ Tall.

College Basketball brought me to the US.

9 year career in Professional Basketball.

14 years as a Discretionary Investment Manager.

I am a contrarian by nature, meaning that I question everything and look at all sides of a situation, not just what is being told to me.

I have never followed the recommendations of my former B/D Firm, Wall Street or the “Talking Heads’ on TV. I do all my own research.

I am a Risk Manager at heart and I believe that the best way to service a client is to protect and preserve their Wealth.

I run my own Proprietary Strategy on the 5 different Portfolio Funds that we already offer and I am currently developing a REIT Portfolio Fund to bring our total offerings to 6.
