Griffin Daniel Sheehy

I came on board with Shone Asset Management in 2016 and as Financial Associate, I provide support in the areas of investment planning, financial planning, and portfolio management. I am a graduate of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo’s Orfalea College of Business where I earned a Bachelor of Science of Quantitative Economics concentrated in Financial Management. Post-graduation, I went straight to work for Waddell & Reed, which is a large advisory firm that specializes in financial and investment planning. I started there in an assistant-type role until earning my Series 7 and Series 66 licenses and at that time promptly transitioned into an Advisor Associate role. Having those licenses allowed me to not only engage in full support on the client servicing side, but in the financial and investment planning process as well. This is where I learned just how critical developing, implementing, and constantly reviewing a solid all around plan is to the success of one’s financial goals. While in college, I interned at Northwestern Mutual in Sacramento where I earned my Insurance License and was educated in the value of managing the risk of unforeseen events in life. I also interned at a small commodities market research firm based in Petaluma, California called Streetwise Reports.

I am married and in my free time I enjoy outdoor activities with my beautiful wife like taking beach trips and hiking. I also enjoy playing sports in local leagues for baseball and basketball.
