My father, Pier, and his family immigrated to the United States in 1966 from Italy leaving a familiar and comfortable life behind in hopes of achieving the American Dream. Although my father was uncertain as to what career path he would pursue in the U.S., he knew at a young age that he was always fascinated with the financial industry. This did not seem too surprising as his father worked in the Department of Treasury in Rome and shared the same fascination.
In the late 1970s my father began to realize his dream when he began a career as a life insurance agent. It was not long before he realized that although he liked what he was doing, he really wanted to do something that incorporated his two big passions: finance and helping others. Just 3 years after beginning his career in the financial services industry, my father took the risk of starting his own business in 1980 where he had the privilege of doing a job that he loved every day.
Fast forward to 1986 and my parents welcomed me to the world. It was not long before my father recognized that I resembled him during his childhood. While all my friends were playing outside growing up, I was infatuated with watching CNBC. Instead of asking for toys for Christmas, I asked for stocks. I now believe more than ever that finance is in my DNA.
Before joining my father at Minotti Financial Group, I worked in a variety of environments in order to educate myself on all aspects of the financial industry. It was not until I joined my father at Minotti Financial Group that I learned the most important lesson and that is to always maintain allegiance to our clients. This has been the foundation of our business since in its inception in 1980 and continues to remain our group’s top priority.
I hope you consider us for assisting you achieve your financial dreams.
