R. Anthony Norris
The many facets of the financial services industry are what draw Anthony to the field, as it is geared to his desire to work in an atmosphere where he is always learning.
Anthony, having had exposure to firms that focus solely on investing, was intrigued by Centerpoint and the complexities the firm dives into surrounding new opportunities, client relationships, and total portfolio management, with each team member sharing a common goal of exceeding expectations. Anthony’s experience as a leader in his extracurricular roles not only make him willing to accept any challenging task, but also have made him an excellent team player and wonderful addition to the Centerpoint Team.
Having lived in four different states and two countries in his youth, Anthony has come to appreciate many aspects of culture and individual relationships with money. He attended Bryant University where he became interested in financial services, majoring in Finance and minoring in Economics and Marketing. He graduated in 2018 Magna Cum Laude, and during his time at Bryant was in the honors program as well as the Archway Investment Fund, a student-managed investment fund. Anthony was one of the founding portfolio managers to establish and manage Bryant’s first fixed income fund.
