Broker Check

Our Team of Professionals & Strategic Partners

We take a consultative no-pressure approach with potential new clients to determine if our service is a good fit for them. This process generally consists of several confidential conversations about money, goals and things most important to the client. There is no cost or obligation for us to meet with someone who wants to learn more about our firm and consider how we can help.

Our client service structure is based on an institutional archetype with specialized divisions of labor and the safeguarding of client assets through independent third-party custodians. Every client has a dedicated personal financial adviser as their primary “go-to” person throughout the relationship. In addition to periodic reviews, we broach ongoing issues of relevance to clients, such as retirement planning, cash flow management, distribution ordering, tax harvesting, education funding and wealth transfer strategies.

Locations & Communications

We serve private clients throughout the continental U.S. and territories, and believe in frequent communication with clients, especially during periods of high market turbulence. We facilitate ongoing interactions with clients that include market & portfolio updates, quarterly & annual reviews, special events and general check-ins. We also strive to provide convenient service through video conferencing, webinars, virtual venues and in-person meetings in various regional facilities when appropriate.

Our national operations center is based in Atlanta, GA, the home office of Advisory Services Network. Our regional consultants and personal financial advisers are generally based in local markets more geographically centric to our client constituency.
