CRD Number: 4395031
Current Firm: Manley Capital Management, LLC
Compensation Model: Fee Only

J. Lawrence Manley, Jr., CFA, CIPM (CRD# 4395031) is an Investment Advisor Representative working at Manley Capital Management, LLC in Summit, NJ and over twenty years of experience in the finance industry.


As an  investment advisor with more than twenty years of value investing experience, I have always had a passion for investing and have been lucky enough to spend my career managing investment portfolios for pension funds, endowments and high-net-worth families. My institutional experience and knowledge have led to the steadfast belief that:

* Capital preservation and the power of compounding are critical to investment success
* Fundamentals regress to the mean and markets are cyclical


And Unfortunately:
* Human nature is pro-cyclical (fear and greed lead investors to sell low and buy high)
* Wall Street does not always put their clients first and they charge too much for poor performance

IN MY EXPERIENCE: there are two major obstacles preventing individuals from reaching their investment goals: Wall Street and Human Nature. Individually, each obstacle is formidable but when these two forces are combined, it nearly impossible for many to reach their investment goals of: a comfortable retirement, improved living standard or providing a family or charitable legacy.

I FOUNDED MANLEY CAPITAL MANAGEMENT, LLC to overcome these investment obstacles and partner with clients to grow their savings in a responsible manner that is simple yet sophisticated.

Finding a Financial Advisor through Wealthminder

The best way to use Wealthminder is to take advantage of our free proposal system. All you have to do is take a few minutes of your time to describe your situation and the assistance you are looking for.

Wealthminder then sends your request to our network of prescreened financial advisors. If a financial advisor is interested in your business, they will submit a proposal to you.

You review the proposals you receive and decide if you’d like to have a follow-up call with one or more of the financial advisors.

Throughout the process, you maintain control. We only share your contact information with a financial advisor once you ask for an introduction.
