Ara Oghoorian, CFA, CFP®

A native of Southern California, Ara began his professional career at Wells Fargo Bank in Huntington Beach, CA piloting new supermarket banks (currently a ubiquitous fixture in our daily lives). He then moved to San Francisco to obtain a degree in finance and started working full time at the Federal Reserve Bank during his junior year in college. He spent nearly 9 years at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco as a bank examiner where he audited U.S. banks, bank holding companies, and foreign institutions from Japan, Hong Kong, China, Korea, Taiwan, Philippines, United Kingdom and France. In 2005, Ara accepted a position with the US Treasury as the resident advisor to the Ministry of Finance and Economy in the Republic of Armenia. He was responsible for advising the Republic of Armenia on how to transition from a centralized audit function to a decentralized system. Upon his return to the US, Ara began working for a wealth management firm in the Washington DC area advising and managing the personal wealth of CEOs of Fortune 500 companies.

Ara has spent his entire career in finance and as a result, he has a firm grasp of financial markets, economics, and their interactions. He loves to travel, read, play tennis, bike ride on the beach with his family, and currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two sons. Ara earned a Bachelor of Science degree in finance from San Francisco State University, is a Commissioned Bank Examiner through the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, holds the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation, Certified Financial Planner designation, and holds the Series 65 license.
