FC Wealth Solutions is an independent, fee-based registered investment advisor located in Westerville, OH. We provide comprehensive financial planning and investment management to individuals and families seeking to assess and establish clear financial goals and have a partner to help guide them toward accomplishing those goals. Our clients benefit from our investment solutions which are built to withstand an ever-evolving industry.

At FC Wealth Solutions, we pride ourselves on our fiduciary and independent status because we believe it is the only way to put our clients' interests first. We stress our core values of total transparency while providing cost-effective solutions, and our internally managed, proprietary investment strategy makes us unique.

As co-founder and Chief Investment Officer, Mike brings real-time investment management experience to clients. Prior to forming FC Wealth Solutions, he spent 15 years working on Wall Street as a trader and portfolio manager for some of the industry’s most well-known firms. His previous experience at Morgan Stanley, Royal Bank of Canada and Hutchin Hill Capital gave his valuable experience in institutional money management. His focus on continual research helps him identify macro trends and strategic investments for client portfolios.

Mike was born and raised in the Columbus area. He earned a bachelor of science in economics from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.

Having worked at these large financial institutions, he quickly realized that the financial services industry is built to serve itself while clients best interests often come in a distant second. He set out to challenge the accepted industry standards by creating a firm built on transparency and one that puts clients interest first.

Craig is a graduate of The University of South Carolina and Florida Institute of Technology. He has been a Columbus area resident for over 30 years. He lives in Worthington with his wife and 3 children.
