Daniel Hochler has been a Financial Representative with Guardian Life since 2013, working out of the New York City office of Forest Hills Financial Group (FHFG). Since day one, his primary focus is being a resource to his clients for both their professional and personal needs. He understands that going above and beyond to meet the needs and desires of his clients is crucial to building a referral only practice. Keeping high-trust, long standing relationships with his clients, attorneys, accountants, and property & casualty brokers is based on trust and integrity. Daniel is passionate about helping millennials and their parents plan for a comfortable and secure retirement by offering them financial strategies that will help them reach and surpass their goals.
Always enterprising, Daniel's business career started at age 12 when he developed his own consignment eBay business involving sports cards and memorabilia. He gained keen insight into sales, supply & demand, changes in market conditions, and the financial challenges faced by small business owners. Daniel graduated from Hofstra University with a B.A. in Psychology. During his college years, he worked for attorneys in different areas of practice, ultimately attending law school – and subsequently dropping out after one semester. When his father introduced him to a family friend in Financial Services at FHFG, Daniel realized this gave him the opportunity to control his own destiny and help himself while helping many others as well.
Daniel's strong sense of industry and community keeps him actively involved as Vice President of BNI Chapter 47 – The Founders Club; as an Active Board Member of Transitional Services New York, a Non-Profit Mental Health Organization; Active Member of The Young Professionals of Gotham City Networking; and a member of The Friars Club, a Fraternal Organization made up in a large part of celebrities, entertainers and comedians. In his spare time Dan enjoys collecting and trading sports cards and memorabilia, playing poker and going to rock concerts. Raised on Long Island, Dan currently resides in New York City.
