Biography:

As the founder and Managing Partner of Auctus Advisors LLC, Mr. Miller maintains overall responsibility for all client outcomes.

Mr. Miller began his career as an analyst with an investment management firm in Washington DC where he researched and analyzed portfolio holdings.  In 2005, he joined Northwestern Mutual and a d/b/a of the firm, Powell Financial, that he later helped take private in 2007.  Mr. Miller spent 9 years as a partner at Powell Financial where he oversaw the firm’s planning and investment process.  In 2015, Mr. Miller became Managing Director of MBL Advisors, a boutique wealth advisory firm within McColl Brothers Lockwood, the family office established by Hugh L. McColl Jr., former Chairman and CEO of Bank of America.

Due to continued regulatory reform, and the desire to be a fee only investment firm, Mr. Miller founded Auctus Advisors and amicably spun out the wealth management practice, retaining key members of his team.

Mr. Miller earned his B.A. degree from Pfeiffer University; attending on a 4 year soccer scholarship. He then earned his M.B.A in Finance from East Carolina’s College of Business.  Miller also holds his Series 65 and Life, Health and Long Term Care license.

    IRAs, Retirement Plans
What are the risks associated with a Roth IRA?

There are investment risks with what you invest in inside of the ROTH IRA, but not true "risks" with the account itself.  One could argue your biggest perceived risk is congress changes the laws on the tax free growth component one day down the road and that benefit gets taken away.  That would be very difficult to implement retroactviely and would not be palatable to any american, so I don't see that as a risk.
