Daniel Sherman

Proprietor and Investment Advisor

Summary

Dan started learning about stocks and stock options in High School. After which, he pursued a degree in finance with an emphasis in investments graduating in 2008. Unfortunately, while interning, Dan watched as clients at Solomon Smith Barney began panicking, and the stock and housing market began to collapse. He continued to manage family and friends portfolios privately but couldn’t pursue his career in the industry.

Dan is a big fan of Warren Buffet, the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. Mr. Buffet is considered one of the greatest value investors to exist. Dan derives much of his philosophy from the teachings and examples of Berkshire Hathaway. Find outstanding companies with excellent management at a reasonable price.

In 2020, he had lost his job during the pandemic and decided to pursue his ongoing passion for investing. Dan is a staunch advocate for investing money with the highest return possible. He didn't want to be held captive at a bank or insurance company, so he started his own business. Meanwhile, he found the love of his life, who was a therapist for children. When trying to decide the name for his company, it was evident; Mind and Wallet Financial advising. We decided to shorten it to MindWallet, and that began MindWallet Investment Advisory.
