Michael Lathrop has been with Newport Advisory since 2012, assisting in the research, analysis, and investment management processes. As a sophomore in high school he earned the rank of Eagle Scout. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps immediately after high and served six years as a Field Radio Operator out of Camp Pendleton, California. He graduated from Chapman University with a Bachelors of Arts in Economics.
Michael credits his background with teaching him the discipline required to excel under pressure and strong leadership skills. Early in his studies, he discovered his passion for financial markets and dedicated himself to learning about the markets. Michael spent significant amounts of his time outside the classroom teaching himself econometrics, statistics, financial analysis, and portfolio management.
Michael currently resides in Orange County, California. When he is not in our Newport Beach office, his hobbies frequently keep him outdoors. He enjoys skiing, hiking, dirt biking, and hockey. Michael played hockey in high school, and briefly for Chapman University. Michael is a big Anaheim Ducks fan, and continues to play locally in a casual recreational league. He remains an avid reader and tries to finish a book every two weeks.
