Geoff Hakim, CFP®

Geoff is the founding member of Marin Capital Management (MCM).  He has over 35 years of experience in investments, finance and real estate.  The first half of his career was spent in Boston’s downtown real estate market.  Over time, Geoff’s interests broadened into other types of investments.  In San Francisco, he worked for Merrill Lynch and then with a boutique wealth manager in Marin.  He founded MCM in 1997, completing his Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) credential in 2001 from the University of California at Berkeley.

Geoff was born and raised in Massachusetts.  He attended the University of Massachusetts, Wentworth Institute and Boston Architectural Center.  He moved to Marin in 1990, married Elizabeth Braman in 1997, and together they are raising a son.

Geoff is a strong advocate for each of his clients.  He understands how a volatile market, along with fear, greed and other emotions, can undermine the investment process.  He has evolved the firm over the years from using only conventional investments (stocks, bonds, REITs) to including a wide range of alternative investments.  These are deliberately selected to protect and grow client wealth even during difficult times.

Geoff brings his leadership to both his clients and to the firm.   He is passionate about evolving MCM towards the latest advances in financial planning, investments, systems and innovations to continuously improve the experience and outcome for clients.

While Geoff believes nothing beats the environment of Marin County, he remains a devoted Red Sox, Patriots and Celtics fan.   When he’s not watching a game, you will find him out hiking Marin trails.
