The Avon resident recently founded Visionary Private Wealth Management Group in Farmington with business partner Edward Romanosky.
Patch asked him to tell us a little bit about his new business and here's what he had to say.
Patch: When did your business open? Is it family-run?
Mezheritskiy: "Our business started June 15 2013. It is an LLC, there are two founding partners: Michael Mezheritskiy and Edward Romanowsky. My role is to design and create comprehensive financial plans, and determine the right investment strategy. Ed is a money manager who then takes over the portfolio and manages the assets by using our unique investment strategy approach.
"Many advisors out there may tell you that you can’t time the market, and you need to invest in a vast array of asset classes and stay the course. We believe this is a way for financial companies to maximize profitability for themselves but not for their clients. Visionary Private Wealth Management Group focuses on over 30 different asset classes and has devised a way to be invested in each sector when the supply and demand curve makes that sector a favorable place to be. We are not influenced by popular trends or financial media. Every client portfolio is built from the ground up with careful security selection."
