In 2001, Bill moved to Wall Street where he was an equity trader for Knight Capital Markets. Mr. Militello subsequently served as a consultant for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Then in 2003, he founded Piedmont Investment Advisors and set out to create not just another investment firm, but rather to redefine the traditional investment model. His view was that the financial services industry was ripe for innovation and therefore, he founded Militello Capital in 2011 to guide the wave of registered investment advisors "RIAs" to think beyond Wall Street and challenge the conventional allocation model. He knows firsthand the challenges of being an entrepreneur and RIA, and built private equity products that create jobs, enhance communities and fund the development of technologies that help mankind.
