At the helm of the Lowrie Wealth Management Group is Richard Lowrie, Senior Managing Director. With 30+ years’ experience in the financial services industry, Rich’s team manages over a quarter billion dollars in assets for individuals, families and fiduciaries and has several relationships that span three and four generations. His focus within the team is on investment policy and strategy, portfolio management and relationship development.
Rich began his career in 1988 with McDonald & Company as a Portfolio Analyst. He quickly was promoted to positions with increasing responsibility, including serving as Vice President and Manager of the Portfolio Strategies Group. Here, Rich was responsible for a group of analysts that offered stock selection, investment strategy and portfolio management advice to the firm’s 300+ advisors. He was Chairman of the firm’s Investment Policy Committee and editor of the firm’s monthly newsletter, The Right Approach, which had a circulation of nearly 10,000 clients per month.
In 1997, Rich teamed with company veterans Ralph String and Beverly Smith to help expand their practice, which was formed in 1952 — and the Lowrie Wealth Management Group was born.
