While wine is a relatively recent passion, finance has been a long-time interest of Nico’s. In recent years, he’s deepened his expertise in portfolio management and impact investing; and studied blockchain technology and potential business applications. Nico is currently the Senior Portfolio Manager at Cult Wines. Previously, Nico was with J.P. Morgan Private Bank, where he advised ultra-high net worth clients and family offices in the Silicon Valley and Latin America. During his time at JPM, Nico worked in both the New York and San Francisco offices, and the time he spent in the Bay Area was where he truly fell in love with California wine country. Outside of work, Nico lives for cycling, coffee and football. When it comes to wine, Nico has had a lifelong love affair with Pinot Noir but admits that Sangioveses are rapidly gaining more and more space in his home cellar.
