Sotirios Raphtis, JD  

Financial Planning Associate


Like a few of my peers here at ECM, I have taken an unorthodox path to the financial world. My educational background includes English, Political Science, and Law. However, it was in law school where I first started falling in love with business and finance, competing in ABA Tax Law Competitions and clerking for the Antitrust Bureau of the Illinois Attorney General’s Office. On top of soaking in every bit of information from the higher ups at Exchange Capital, I am working toward acquiring my MBA from Oakland University School of Business Administration.  

When I am not in the office, I let my competitive side dictate my hobbies. After 4 years of Division 1 Soccer at Colgate University (and a NCAA Sweet 16 appearance at the expense of the University of Michigan), I spend my free time as an aspiring single digit handicap golfer, an amateur chess player, and a Jeopardy! enthusiast. My weekends are dedicated to Iowa Hawkeye Football, English Premier League Soccer, and Marvel movies.
