The first lighthouse in the United States was constructed near Boston in the early 1700s. Shortly thereafter, several lighthouses were constructed along the eastern seaboard to not only warn seafarers of imminent dangers but they were also built as a navigational aid.
Lighthouse Investment Advisory, LLC was formed with the intent of providing independent investment and wealth management advisory services with a disciplined risk management approach for investors. While it is critical to create a financial roadmap, it is equally important to be aware of the hazards that may ensue in any given market cycle. Like a lighthouse, an investment portfolio must be created to provide an individual with a navigational aid towards helping fulfill a stated or desired objective and it must be nimble enough to sidestep dangers.
Michael L. DeVincentis, Jr., the founder of Lighthouse Investment Advisory, LLC was born and raised in Baltimore, MD. He completed his undergraduate and graduate studies at American University in Washington, DC where he met his wife Eleanor. After getting married in 1984, Michael and his wife moved to Albuquerque, NM where he began his securities career with Dean, Witter, Reynolds & Co. in 1985. In a 1967 firm-wide memo, the firm's founder, Dean Witter, stated that "we have a sacred trust to protect our customers". Mr. DeVincentis has never forgotten those words and they have become the backbone of his client-centric business model. Michael has attained the designation of Accredited Investment Fiduciary(R)
Michael, his wife of 34 years and their two adult children currently reside in Baltimore County.
