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