Intrigued by the stock market in his teens, Austin soon became fascinated by the idea of global exchanges—where individual investors can partake in commerce with large, global companies. But during his freshman year in college Austin quickly discovered his true passion: helping everyday people understand their personal finances.
Urged on by an insightful professor, Austin found he was a perfect fit for the Financial Planning career track major.
Austin began his internship at Market Street in May 2017, where he supported the team in delivering financial planning and investment management services, as well as worked on a variety of special projects. Austin plans to study for the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) exam following graduation from Indiana State University in the spring of 2018.
At Indiana State University, Austin is heavily involved with on-campus organizations, including The Networks Professional Development Program, Alpha Kappa Psi professional fraternity, the Financial Planning Association (FPA), the Honors Program, and the Investment Club.
"My first internship was with a brokerage firm. While that experience showed me what’s it’s truly like working in the financial industry, I’m excited to experience the fee-only world at Market Street."
