Christopher G. DeMaria
Investment Advisor Representative
Christopher G. DeMaria is a member of the Global Community. Having lived abroad for more than 18 years, he studied in South America, Europe, Southeast Asia and the United States. Chris is the owner of DeMaria Financial Services and an Investment Advisor Representative with Kovack Investment Advisors, Inc. He began his career in financial planning and portfolio management in March of 1998 after earning a degree from Ohio University where he majored in Economics and minored in Business Administration.
Chris believes in the need for continual learning and ongoing education. He has an interest in multiple fields including portfolio management, economics, the financial markets, and human emotion and attachment theory. He's had the luxury of being able to apply a culmination of these concepts into real world scenarios due to his nearly 19 years' experience managing money for individuals, corporations, and foundations. His methodology has been tested over that time in order to improve its reliability and effectiveness while adapting from successes and failures throughout some of the most challenging markets since the Great Depression (1998 to 2016).
Chris focuses on achieving "positive" results regardless of how the market indices perform. Unlike some managers, Chris manages the risk of each individual portfolio rather than remaining invested at all times. Chris strives to identify low risk entry points and conversely, uses a calculated exit strategy when market risk is high or positions are lagging or down. Chris does not try to beat an index every quarter. Instead, he is focused on the potential for low risk profits. If you manage risk well and avoid large corrections, you will naturally create much better results.
