Todd Gurvis was raised to believe that doing well and doing good are not separate ideas. Rather, they are inseparable. This is evident in his strong dedication to community, charity and family. An alumnus of Binghamton University, Todd spent almost sixteen years in non-profit management, events planning and fundraising before making the move to financial services in late 1994. His extensive background in fundraising and non-profit management provides him with a dynamic perspective on charitable planning, gift structuring, portfolio design and financial strategies for charitable agencies, their donors and their employees.
Todd’s focus on community encompasses so much more than charitable planning, though. As the father of a special needs child, Todd has developed an expertise in planning for the unique needs of the families of special needs children. President of the BNI Producers chapter in Northridge, California, Todd also works on early retirement strategies for mid-level executives and business owners, as well as generational wealth transference. He also has expertise in tailored planning for same-sex couples. The two-time recipient of the West Hollywood Creative Business Award*, Todd holds his Series 6, 7, 26 and 63 Registrations with LPL Financial and is SIE certified. He is also an Investment Advisor Representative with Trilogy Capital, Inc. in which he holds his Series 65 Registration, as well as holds Life, Long-Term Care, Disability and Health Insurance Licenses.
When he’s not at work, Todd advises and sits on the boards of several charities. A Rotarian for over twenty-five years, Todd is particularly passionate about his volunteer work with high school and college students as an Interact Advisor and RYLA Counselor. Most importantly, Todd is the proud father of three amazingly talented, charity-minded children.
