Gould Capital was founded in 2011 by Charles Gould and his sons, John and Gary. In the wake of the financial crisis of 2008, they saw a need for a wealth management firm that would put clients’ interests first, find investment opportunities with real value, and focus on wealth preservation and risk management strategies. Charles, John, and Gary have over 75 years of combined experience working as investment managers.
Charles started at Merrill Lynch in 1973 and was joined by John in 1995. Together they formed the Gould Group at Merrill Lynch, adopting a fee-based business model to better serve their clients’ interests. Gary joined them in 2005, and in 2011 helped to establish Gould Capital as an independent firm where they could continue to remain strong advocates for their clients.
