Mike is a Certified Financial Planner® and is the Chief Investment Officer determining the asset allocation mix and selection of the managers used to implement our various strategies.
Mike began his career in 1985 with a major Wall Street firm. Being a Registered Representative of Royal Alliance Associates since 1988, Mike moved to work with the investment division of a large Federal credit union in Kern County, California. Mike broke from the traditional Wall Street brokerage model in 2001 to found Bowles Financial & Insurance Group, Inc., an independent advisory firm, that controls its own destiny by remaining independent from any brokerage firm, insurance company, bank or credit union where conflicts of interest may exist. Mike’s vision for BFG was based on the mission of providing knowledgeable, caring guidance to our client’s financial lives.
Mike consults with clients to assist in the architecture and implementation of financial plans and investment portfolios to create a truly comprehensive and well thought out road map to financial independence.
Mike is a guest columnist for newspapers and trade publications and previously hosted a radio talk show on a local ABC News affiliate.
