Mike Delaney focuses his energy into helping clients navigate all of their financial needs. His experience includes a stint on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, a career focused on investments at Brown Advisory and insurance at Securian Financial.

He loves playing soccer, lacrosse, golf, basketball… and really any sport. When he’s not meeting friends or family at the movies or the local watering hole, you can normally find him reading something very nerdy, like science fiction or financial science.
