John Augustine, CFA

Chief Investment Officer

“Over 30 years of experience means something in this business, and I intend to continue to use that history for the benefit of our Huntington clients. Over the years, one of the most important mantras I have followed is ‘Know what you own, and why you own it’. We review this with our Investment Portfolio Managers every week and it helps us greatly to guide investment portfolios through the ever changing economic and macro environment.”

John Augustine, Chief Investment Officer
