Page 47 of 51 48 November 2019 Opus Private Client, LLC Managing Partner Age: 34 Bio: The son of a Venezue- lan mother and a Japanese father, Watanabe has always had an appreciation for the value of diversity. After gra- duating from Brooks School in New England, he went on to graduate from the College of the Holy Cross where he be- came an active member and board member of the diver- sity network. Today, he is an active member of the Bishop Healy Committee, which aims to support underrepresented students pursuing an educa- tion at Holy Cross. In 2018, he received the HCAA Young Alumni Leadership Award acknowledging his outstan- ding service to the Holy Cross community. After graduating from co- llege, Watanabe began his ca- reer in financial services. He is particularly sensitive to the nuances that various cultures have about planning for the future. He is now a managing partner of Opus Private Client LLC in New York, where a sig- nificant portion of his client base is in the Latinx commu- nity. His expertise is in asset protection, wealth accumula- tion, and wealth distribution. His knowledge and rich expe- rience in the finance industry earned him the President's Council Award in 2018. His contributions to the Latinx business community have been recognized natio- nally. He was voted one of El Mundo magazines's 30 Under 30 in 2016. He is also a former board member of the New York chapter of the Associa- tion of Latino Professionals for America, and he remains an active corporate liaison to advance the success of Latinx professionals. Most recently, he presented wealth mana- gement strategies specific to the Latinx community at this year's ALPFA National Con- vention in Nashville. He and his wife are re- sidents of Westchester. He spends his free time playing basketball, golf, and cheering for his favorite sports teams, the Boston Celtics, Boston Red Sox, and the Miami Dol- phins. Iván Watanabe Saving for the future "S urround yourself with the dreamers and doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don't see it yourself." - Edmund Lee
