Michael Halloran/MaxMyInterest

As head of partnerships and business development at MaxMyInterest, Michael Halloran is responsible for building relationships with registered investment advisers, family offices, and private banks, as well as advancing product development and supporting marketing efforts with the financial advisor community.

Born in Massachusetts, Michael received his B.A. from Brown University and his M.B.A. from the London Business School. Beginning his career as a developer with Fidelity, he also previously worked in product areas with Morgan Stanley from 2007 to 2015, supporting the firm’s engagement with venture capital and startups.

A fifth-generation Irish American, Michael has traced his father’s family roots to County Waterford. “Family lore was that my great-great-grandfather was a Fenian and fled to the United States to avoid trouble with the British police,” he reveals. To Michael, his Irish heritage means “having a deep appreciation of the hard work of all immigrants and outsiders to be accepted.” Michael and his wife, Denise, live with their children, John, Annabelle, and Reilly, in San Francisco.
