Your Own Personal Economist
For over 30 years, Mark Grimaldi has applied his economic and political analyses to make economic forecasts and investment decisions. Impressed by the purity and power of compounded interest as a young child, he was called to help people navigate their financial futures. After studying economics, he launched his investment career with his own personal combination of economic and financial market principles. Ever since, Mark has relentlessly pursued deeper knowledge in macroeconomics and dedicated his time to educating and bettering the financial future of everyday people.
Mark Grimaldi and Joe Visconti co-founded Grimaldi Portfolio Solutions, an SEC Registered Investment Advisory firm, to provide personalized investment advice and management. Mark and Joe share the same passion for finding opportunities for financial growth. Since 1996, GPS has applied economic knowledge and proprietary quantitative modeling to find opportunities in any economic climate.
In addition to offering financial planning and investment management services, Grimaldi Portfolio Solutions has also put its core strategy in action as the advisor of The Sector Rotation Fund (NAVFX).
