In 2013, our founding partners, Mark Kamann and John Quimjian M.D., decided to form a new financial firm dedicated to help physicians achieve their financial goals and objectives. They felt there was a need for an investment firm that did not profit from commissions, offered individual securities in addition to mutual funds, and charged lower fees. They understood that their client’s long term return would be positively impacted by these principles. Due to individual requests, Physicians Wealth Solutions is now open to other professionals.
