After getting his B.A. in History and English from the University of Denver, Laile began in the securities business in 1968. He served as a broker with several Wall Street firms before striking out on his own as an independent adviser in the 80's. He maintains Series 6, 7 and insurance licenses and registrations in 11 states. A proponent of diversification and appropriate asset allocation, he has over 45 years of experience in stock, bond and mutual fund portfolios and annuities.
As a volunteer, Laile has taught investment classes at Young American's Bank and at middle schools and high schools, focusing on how math concepts are applied in investing. He has taught over 50 adult seminars on topics like “How to Achieve Conservative Growth and Income,” and “How to Choose a Stock”. In the 1990's, he co-hosted a radio show on KYBG and a television program, “Money Matters,” for American Cablevision. Both focused on educating and advising investors.
Sports and family have been major influences on his life. He came to Colorado to attend D.U. on a baseball scholarship, met his wife 10 years later and cheerfully raised a family of two sons and a daughter. He has been active as a volunteer in many organizations including Kiwanis and as coach of his sons' basketball and baseball teams. He enjoys volunteering at church and spending time with his 7 grandchildren. He is fortunate to say sincerely that he loves the work he does and cherishes the lifelong friendships and opportunities it brings.
