• Charlie Brown

    Financial Advisor, Financial Services Representative

    Charlie is a financial advisor with the Marathon Financial Group, based in Boston, MA. He and his team (see below) specialize in helping busy, successful, and established professionals organize their financial lives and take the stress out of planning.

    In the earlier years of his practice, Charlie focused almost exclusively on serving the needs of Boston area physicians and their families. While this vocation remains a focus, the practice has since grown significantly to serve other professionals and business owners all over the United States.

    Charlie started his practice over a decade ago with the simple mission of being ‘great, rather than big’. His passion lies in building strong long term relationships and developing sophisticated strategies that solve more complex financial issues. Thus, Charlie now limits new clients to only 10 new families per year, and these folks generally must be mid- to late-career.

    Charlie has a degree in Economics from the University of Massachusetts Boston, and holds his FINRA Series 6, 7, 63, 65, and SIE licenses.

    He lives in Boston’s South End with his husband, Mason. When not at the office, Charlie and Mason can be found on their patio with a book or garden spade in hand.
