Asset allocation and alternative investments specialist Douglas Greenberg looks forward to his upcoming Africa trip as he and his sons prepare to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
A former Morgan Stanley broker specializing in asset allocation, alternative investments, and wealth advice, Douglas Greenberg is set to travel to Africa this summer to climb the infamous Mount Kilimanjaro with his two grown-up sons. Here, Texas-native Greenberg shares more about the forthcoming trip.
“This June, my sons and I will travel approximately 15,000 kilometers from our home in Oregon to Tanzania in north-easternmost Africa, home to the infamous Mount Kilimanjaro,” reveals Portland-area former Morgan Stanley broker Greenberg.
Greenberg and family are well-traveled, visiting a vast array of countries around the world in their pursuit of some of the planet’s best skiing, sailing, scuba diving, and hiking opportunities.
His plan to travel to Tanzania later this year, however, he says, represents his most significant challenge to date. “While in Africa, my sons and I will tackle the continent’s tallest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro,” explains Greenberg.
Approaching 6,000 meters tall, Mount Kilimanjaro’s most impressive volcanic peak soars way above Africa’s second-highest mountain, Mount Kenya, by several hundred meters. “As a family, we’re all extremely excited to travel to Tanzania this summer,” reveals Greenberg, “and preparations for our Kilimanjaro climb are now well underway.”
Bordered by the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique, Malawi, Burundi, Rwanda, and Zambia, the United Republic of Tanzania is positioned within Africa’s Great Lakes region. Greenberg and his sons will initially head out through grassland and jungle before reaching alpine forests and Mount Kilimanjaro’s magnificent but unforgiving arctic tundra.
“Even as experienced climbers,” Greenberg adds, wrapping up, “we’re under no illusion about the challenge which lies ahead, but we cannot wait to get going.”
The family’s trip to Africa is scheduled for summer of 2019.
Texas-born father of two Douglas Greenberg is a resident of Lake Oswego, Oregon, located 10 miles south of Portland.
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business Executive Education programs and a former Morgan Stanley executive director, wealth advisor, and senior portfolio manager, Greenberg is known for his problem-solving skills, as well as specializing in alternative investments and asset allocation.
A fan of professional soccer and basketball, Greenberg holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Texas at Dallas and, in his spare time, enjoys hiking, sailing, and wine tasting in addition to travel, skiing, and scuba diving.
