Randy Hamilton

founder & chief INVESTMENT OFFICER


Randy has been managing investment portfolios for musicians, artists, professional athletes, and high net worth individuals for 27 years. He began his career at Merrill Lynch in Cleveland, Ohio in 1992.  Disillusioned with the financial industry model that values products over people, in 2017, Randy founded Hamilton Wealth, a client-centric firm that seeks to redefine what a financial advisory firm should be. Randy is on a mission to get clients to focus on what we can control: risk, fees, spending, and taxes. When he is not working, Randy enjoys reading, live music with his wife, Kelly, and spending time at the beach with his sons, Jude and James Bowie.

We are often at odds with the crowd (or investment community)…as Warren Buffet says, ‘Be greedy when others are fearful, and be fearful when others are greedy’  One of our mantras.
