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.
