He spent nine years with the Wall Street firm, where he was senior vice president, portfolio management director and financial advisor before leaving to launch Noble Wealth Partners.

"There are a lot of options today for advisors like us who want to control their own destiny, but don't want to be alone," Mike Noble, CFP®, founding partner, said.
