About Avere Wealth Management
We are black-owned and LGBTQI+ founded. Our firm has a deep understanding of these historically under-served communities, which causes us to lead with sensitivity and to seek understanding in all conversations. It also creates a greater conviction to see us all succeed. Together we will rise up and create sustainable and generational wealth for our families.
Avere Wealth Management is an independent Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firm based in Atlanta, GA. We serve clients nationally by leveraging technology to reduce barriers to access a qualified financial professional.
Avere Wealth Management is deeply committed to helping clients build sustainable wealth. With our holistic and intensely personal approach, we focus on every aspect of your financial life and will design a strategy that helps you gauge, maximixe, grow, protect, preserve, maintain, personalize, and pass your wealth. Our business is built around three core tenets--educating, advising, and implementing.
When you engage with Avere, you can expect we will take time to educate you on the topic of personal finance. We are qualified to go as deep as you like on the topic, or at your preference, we can keep the discussion on a general level.
We will provide alternatives and advise on the pros and cons of each option, along with recommendations and rationale. You can accept, reject, or modify any recommendation to suit your comfort level. Disagreeing with my advice will not hurt our professional relationship; however, it may delay or alter your financial goals. Be assured, I will always respect your decision and adjust my strategy accordingly.
Once you have decided on the strategy, we will work together to implement the plan. If we need to bring in other advisors such as your estate planning attorney or CPA, we will coordinate and work directly with them to provide the necessary oversight to get things done on your behalf. We will also regularly monitor the outcome of the strategy and pivot as required to maximize the desired result.

why i got in the industry
I entered the financial planning industry based on several early and unforgettable experiences. As a child, I enjoyed budgeting and saving my weekly allowance, and I quickly learned the value of delayed gratification. Instead of spending my allowance at the ice cream truck, I decided to save up to purchase my first pair of roller skates and a Nintendo system (I know I’m aging myself).
As a teenager, when a few family patriarchs passed away, I overheard conversations from other elders expressing frustration that they had to financially contribute to the funeral and final expenses. I wondered why no one made it a priority to have life insurance to alleviate some of the stress on their loved ones during a very difficult time.
As an adult, a couple of close friends declared bankruptcy. This created much emotional stress as we discussed their feelings of shame. In response, I helped them create budgets and counseled on how to rebuild their credit.
In all, I have an intense desire to help people achieve their financial goals and to be their accountability partner every step of the way. Together, we will create sustainable wealth.
