Meet Patrick Bourbon
►►► PERSONAL CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER - INDEPENDENT FINANCIAL PLANNER - MANAGED MULTI-BILLION PORTFOLIO ◄◄◄
Global investment expert with 20 years' experience with a passion for investing.
I help professionals and EXPATRIATES worldwide who want to enjoy a COMFORTABLE RETIREMENT at a chosen lifestyle by giving non-conflicted advice, and by optimizing their portfolios in a world of lower returns.
My in-depth experience includes asset allocation, preserving and growing wealth, risk management, fund/ETF selection and due diligence. My primary goal is to make sure that our clients have enough assets as long as they live so that they can enjoy PEACE OF MIND.
My passion for investments started in my early teens when my mother and I visited the Paris Bourse. At the time, I was given a $2 bill and started to check its value in Francs weekly. Later, I earned a Master in Engineering before going to business school in Chicago. My interest in stocks grew when I created an investment club, worked at JP MORGAN, UBS, BNP, and started to manage a fund of funds in 1995. My early work experience impressed upon me the values of EXCELLENCE and INTEGRITY.
After 15 years of helping friends, I created Bourbon Financial Management, and decided to bring my institutional money management experience (10 years at UBS) to help families LIVE THE LIFE THEY WANT. My goal is to give every client the best possible chance of having a successful retirement. Being competent was no longer enough. I wanted meaning.
Following my interest in academic research, desire to learn and educate others, and giving back to Chicago by helping communities, I became an adjunct professor, the President of UFEC-AFFC, Chairman of Stuart Investment, and Treasurer of the South Shore Drill Team.
I competed during 10 years in ski and tennis. Sports has taught me discipline, focus, hard work, how to perform well under pressure, and how to be goal oriented which is helpful as a PERSONAL CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER.
