John-Paul F. Stornetta

Investment Advisor/Partner

John-Paul was raised in a home where discussions regarding finance, economics, and politics were common place. By the age of twelve he was taking every opportunity available to toss his two cents into the heated debates with elders. The compilation of his frugal Swiss heritage, early reading on investing, and desire to understand the business and economic world guided him down his career path.

At the age of 15 he strolled into Maguire Investments with a meager savings from birthday money and chores, a passion for investing, and an eagerness to learn. During his first investment consultation, Steve Maguire offered him an internship at the office. John-Paul worked summers and holiday vacations until he completed his education.


John-Paul began his career with Maguire Investments over 20 years ago, in June of 1997. He started from the bottom and worked his way up, performing a variety of functions including compliance, human resources, accounting, sales, and even taking out the trash. These roles along with his formal education provided the foundation for his current focus on serving clients and helping them ensure their financial wellbeing.
