Vice President, Client Advisor
J.P. Morgan Private Bank
Liz Lenrow spent six years in New York City as an analyst and vice president with J.P. Morgan Private Bank before returning to her native Baltimore last year.
Her return was not a coincidence.
In fact, Lenrow considers her move to Baltimore to help grow J.P. Morgan Private Bank’s then-new office her greatest professional accomplishment.
“There is something special about bringing everything I have worked for in New York City home to advise my clients and help the community organizations in which I grew up,” she said.
Lenrow earned her bachelor’s degree from Johns Hopkins University, with double majors in applied mathematics and statistics and economics, and her MBA from New York University.
Since returning to the area, Lenrow has joined several education, health care and religious organizations, including Johns Hopkins University, Roland Park Country School, LifeBridge Health and the Jewish Federation of Baltimore.
She also has joined the Young Leadership Council, a development program that helps young adults who aspire to leadership positions in Baltimore’s Jewish community.
Lenrow’s primary focus, she said, is empowering Baltimore’s female community to take control of their finances.
“Too often, women are not involved in financial decisions or the day-to-day management of their finances,” she said. “Through convening women across the region for discussions about financial literacy and involvement, I hope to change this.”
Lenrow takes a personal, comprehensive approach to her work as a client adviser.
“I advice my clients on all aspects of their financial lives, from their banking and lending to their investing and planning,” she said. “I listen carefully and provide creative solutions to my clients, who often think of me not only as their trusted adviser, but as their friend and sometimes psychiatrist.”
Her approach to her career, Lenrow said, owes a huge debt to her community, especially attending Krieger Schechter Day School and the Roland Park Country School. It was there, she explained, that she learned that her Jewish community and friends are the backbone of her support system.
“Today, at J.P. Morgan, it is the community that I find in my colleagues and my relentless nature that pushes me to work tirelessly for my clients,” she said.
