A Message From Our Founder

J. Lawrence Manley, Jr. CFA

At Manley Capital, we understand that investing for retirement can be complicated and stressful, and it can be scary trusting someone you don’t know well with so much. I managed investment portfolios for major pension plans, endowments, and high net worth individuals, and now I specialize in helping people prepare to retire well. I’m a Chartered Financial Analyst charter holder (CFA), with more than twenty-five years of institutional investment experience. My research has been published on Marketwatch, Seeking Alpha, Safe Haven, and Substack.

Manley Capital Management is a Registered Investment Advisor founded in 2013 to provide responsible private wealth management services to investors seeking capital appreciation, balanced with risk management and a focus on preserving capital.
