David Garcia, financial advisor

Hi. I’m Dave.  Dedicated, patient, diligent, honest, kind and loyal.  These are not only some of the adjectives my family, friends and colleagues have used to describe me, but characteristics that I value and lead with when connecting with others. 

After graduating Binghamton University with a BS in Accounting, I became a CPA, working for Ernst & Young.  I have 20+ years of experience on Wall Street in various positions; from safeguarding assets as a controller for Deutsche Bank to driving strategy for Global Markets Sales as a Business Manager on the Chief Operating Officer’s team at HSBC.  

Working for big corporations afforded me great experience and a solid foundation, but my desire to connect and help individuals on a personal and financial level is what led me to become a financial adviser and launch PurposePath Capital.
