Isadora L Grossman

Isadora L Grossman

Associate Wealth Management Advisor
Office 415-733-6555

Isadora Grossman focuses on the investment component of financial security planning, with a primary emphasis on research, implementation, and strategic portfolio construction and diversification. Izzi joined our team in January 2018 after several years of firm operations and supervision.

A graduate of Truman State University with degrees in Romance Languages and Psychology, Izzi is fully credentialed, including licenses for life insurance, disability insurance, long term care insurance, and general securities (Series 7).

In her free time, Izzi likes cooking, travelling, and horseback riding. Although Izzi can comfortably discuss weather, literature, and history in Spanish, French, and Italian, including periodic conversations about fine wines, she generally prefers English when discussing sophisticated planning issues. Esoteric pop culture references from film or literature make her smile.



And We’re Fun …

Financial security planning isn’t only about numbers, math, strategy, tactics, and quantitative analysis. Our work focuses primarily on people, which means listening to our clients and understanding what’s important to you, your values, your goals, your vision for your future. We understand that our clients’ goals are driven by qualitative factors that may be more important than merely money, because your goals stem from emotion and feelings, that are not directly quantifiable. Finding out about you, your family, your friends, and the most important parts of your life, the fun parts of your life, is the human aspect of our work.
