Princeton, NJ, Annapolis, MD, Exton, PA

Department: Advisors

Experience: Wealth Management since 1998

Education: Bachelor of Commerce and Graduate Law Degree from University of KwaZulu-Natal

Martin comes to Modern Wealth following our firm’s acquisition of Wealth Management Solutions in May 2024, where he served as the CEO. His extensive background in the wealth management field also included a 20-year run as the president of Hopkins Investment Management (originally M.L. Hopkins & Co., LLC), which merged with Wealth Management Solutions in 2021.

There were several reasons why Martin was intrigued by the idea of joining the Modern Wealth team. He was eager to be part of a larger team that can assist with all the back-office stuff related to running a business, the extra time he has to assist his clients, and the extra services he can deliver to them.

As a CFP® Professional and attorney out of our Annapolis, Maryland office, Martin has always made it a point to provide unbiased professional guidance when it comes to making important decisions that impact their future. He has been a member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) since 2003 and has served on the board of the Northeast Division.

Martin immigrated to the United States in 1996 from South Africa, where he was a senior partner in a law firm. He and his wife, Lyn, have two adult sons and three grandchildren. Martin and Lyn live in Annapolis, where he cultivated his love for boating. He enjoys exploring the inland waters of the East Coast, hiking, and new motor cars. Martin is an active leader in Church of the Nations International.
