And in a world where opportunities to capture growth and income are becoming more and more international, his global expertise will be invaluable as we continue to help our clients achieve their goals.”

“I’m pleased and eager to join the Hamilton Capital team,” Caxide said. “The firm has developed a national reputation as a top adviser, and I look forward to not only growing that reputation and the investment management team, but also assisting the firm’s many clients in achieving their long-term financial goals.”
