Owner Biography

Trevor Fried

Trevor Fried is a Financial Advisor and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ residing and working in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He began collecting stamps in 1977 at the age of 8 after his grandmother gifted him a U.S. stamp album. He spent most of his remaining childhood collecting stamps with his father Joel, a dentist in Rockland County, New York.

After a lifetime of dreaming about and admiring the Inverted Jenny, Trevor and his father attended the World Stamp Show in New York City in the spring of 2016 to view the Jenny that was being auctioned that week. Seeing the Jenny and the auction in person reignited Trevor’s childhood dream to own one someday. Four years later, he purchased Jenny position #95 at auction as a reward for submitting to his first colonoscopy on his 50th birthday. In particular, Trevor was drawn to the words used in the auction catalog to describe this particular Jenny, which he felt could be used to describe him as well – “Very Fine, slightly disturbed, but better centered than many”.

With his one-and-only lifelong bucket list item now completed, Trevor and his family continue to dedicate their time and energy as active members or board members for several civic and benevolent organizations in Broward County, Florida. A member of the Planned Giving Council of Broward since 2013, Trevor has served as the Board Chair at Gilda’s Club of South Florida and continues to serve there as an honorary board member. He is also presently serving as a volunteer Guardian for Honor Flight South Florida, escorting our nation’s WWII veterans to Washington D.C. to visit and reflect at our nation’s memorials and monuments. In 2019, Trevor was appointed as a trustee of the South Florida National Parks Trust, a support and project funding arm for the four South Florida parks that are protected and operated by the National Parks Service.

Recognized by Barron’s (Dow Jones & Company publication) as one of the top financial advisors in the country, Trevor holds an undergraduate degree in Economics from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts and Masters and Doctorate degrees in Business from Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Florida.
