Michael Nicholas, CFA

Financial Services Representative

Michael joined us recently as a member of Gary McMahon’s team and is working out of the Chicago office. He comes to us from Northern Trust, where he worked with high-net-worth clients, primarily in investment management. He holds his CFA® (Chartered Financial Analyst) designation and is a member of the CFA Society of Chicago. One of Michael’s best friends from elementary school, Cale Morin, encouraged him to take a look at Lakeshore, where he could build his practice and target a variety of different markets. Michael describes himself as a people person, who likes helping others and making a difference in their lives. LSFG seemed like a perfect fit. Originally from Aurora, Michael attended Waubonsie Valley High School. He is a University of Missouri graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree in Economics. While at Mizzou, he was a Future Business Leaders of America member and enjoyed playing volleyball and flag football. Michael and his fiancée Erin live in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood today. Erin works in marketing for Wilton Brands and the couple is planning an October 2024 wedding. In his spare time, Michael enjoys playing volleyball (his favorite sport), golfing, cooking, and traveling. He is a self-described “movie buff” and a “foodie,” who once ate two Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches, after a complete Italian dinner in Philadelphia.

Michael is a registered representative and investment adviser representative of Equity Services, Inc., and offers securities in Illinois.  Michael is insurance licensed in Illinois.
