Loden brings over three decades of professional experience in investment management and financial planning to MAI. In his most recent role, he specialized in advising high-net-worth clients including successful executives and business owners, retirees and those nearing retirement on how to maximize their savings and fulfill their financial goals. J.D. will assume the role of Senior Wealth Advisor, Managing Director at MAI and will be joining MAI’s existing office in Naples, Florida headed by Matthew Mathias, Regional President.
“We are thrilled to add J.D.’s extensive experience to the team,” said Rick Buoncore, Managing Partner at MAI. “He harbors all the qualities we value in advisors at MAI, and I’m confident that he will integrate his client-focused approach to advising with the tools and investment solutions offered by MAI.”
“MAI’s broad resources will serve to enhance my client’s investment experience and expand the planning options available to them,” said J.D. “With the support of MAI, I look forward to continuing to focus on the success of my clients and growing MAI’s footprint in Florida.”
MAI is acquiring Loden’s previous business, JD Loden Wealth Management Inc., marking continued growth since Galway Holdings (“Galway”), a leading financial services distribution company, completed its acquisition of MAI in September 2021. MAI has engaged in ongoing and strategic growth through M&A, partnerships, and organic activity that has broadened MAI’s client service offerings.

“Our partnership with J.D. further broadens MAI’s financial planning footprint and lends an additional resource for clients in the southeast and across the MAI team,” added John Hahn, Executive Chairman at Galway.
