A respected businessman, experienced financial advisor and active, international philanthropist, in 2013 Wool founded The Wool Group at Morgan Stanley to provide excellence in personalized investment and wealth strategies. Prior to this, his interest in Asia-Pacific investment opportunities took him to Hong Kong (2010-2013), where Wool served as the managing director of the Professional Investors Group for Oppenheimer Asia Ltd. His work continues to bring him back to Asia where he enjoys sharing his knowledge of global markets – In 2011 he was invited to discuss executive services and wealth management at the China Entrepreneurs CEO & CFO Forum, and he is a regular, featured speaker at the U.S. Markets and Foreign Direct Investments at the Fujairah U.A.E. International Business Forum.
Since 2015, Wool has served on the board of directors at the Center for International Relations and Sustainable Development, a public policy think-tank created by admired diplomat and the youngest person to become president of the United Nations General Assembly, Vuk Jeremić.
Outside the office, Wool passionately champions helping underserved communities, contributing to charitable organizations across the globe. During his current term as a board member of LifeLine New York – a nonprofit focused on providing medical equipment for Serbian children in need – Wool was honored by Her Royal Highness, Katherine, Crown Princess of Yugoslavia with the LifeLine Humanitarian Award for his avid dedication to this cause. He is also heavily involved with Project Rousseau, empowering youth in underprivileged areas to help teens and young adults realize their full potential and pursue higher education. Concurrently, he is a board member at Lang Lang International Music Foundation – created to educate, inspire and motivate the next generation of music lovers, and to encourage playing and performing as a means of social development. Additionally, Wool is a board member at Line Up Media Group, an organization conceived to circumvent traditional entertainment barriers to deliver progressive, on-demand content.
