During his 18-year career there, he became the firm’s top producer nationally, as well as the first advisor to surpass one billion dollars in assets under management. He also was recognized as a member of both the Chairman’s Club and the Equity Club, a distinction reserved for only the top advisors at the Morgan Stanley.

Through his work with professional athletes, Ed was prominently featured in the Sports Illustrated article, “How (and Why) Athletes Go Broke,” which became one of the most widely read articles in Sports Illustrated history. Additionally, Ed was featured in the film “Broke,” an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary chronicling professional athletes and their monetary experiences.

He frequently is seen on “Varney and Co”, “Closing Bell”, “Street Signs”, “Your World w/ Cavuto”, “America Live” with Megyn Kelly, “Willis Report”, “America’s News HQ”, “Taking Stock” with Pimm Fox, TheBlaze TV with Glenn Beck, and “Wilkow!” with Andrew Wilkow.

Additionally, Ed created the Chapwood Index, a real cost of living index that attempts to show, on a quarterly basis, a more accurate figure for cost of living increases in the nation’s top 50 major metropolitan areas.

Additionally, Ed developed the Paramount Institutional Access Fund, a 40-Act fund providing access to these institutional quality hedge fund managers for a low minimum investment.
