Brennan Carson, CFA
Head, Solution Wealth
Portfolio Manager

I have spent more than 20 years in the financial industry preparing for this unique opportunity to provide wealth management service and advice to clients with the simple goal of doing it right. I have had the good fortune to work hands-on with individual clients, investment advisors and institutional investors. Each experience gave me more insight and knowledge to help turn financial goals into reality. Now we apply this experience to offer our clients a comprehensive approach to wealth management.

Chad McAlpine, CFA, CMT
Chief Investment Officer

I have always had a passion for problem-solving, and for the past 20 years, I have applied that skill to building investment portfolios. My background is in math, physics and computer programming. I quickly learned how these skills applied to analyzing investments through a truly objective lens. As Head of Quantitative Research at RBC Capital Markets, I worked collaboratively with my colleagues on developing investment solutions that would best meet our clients’ needs.

Mike Bentz, CFA, FRM
Chief Operating Officer & Chief Compliance Officer

I bring more than 18 years of investment management experience to the executive team. Previously, I was the Director of Quantitative Infrastructure and a Partner at Picton Mahoney Asset Management, where I honed my skills in Risk Management and Quantitative Investing. In addition to managing the daily operations of Solution Wealth Management, I am responsible for the information technology platform, communications systems and compliance supervision.
