My NET WORTHWHILE™ is watching clients experience the life-changing freedom that comes from building a financial plan.

Elias’ passion for financial planning is uniquely personal. Coming from a family of 8 children, he was taught to work hard, live below his means, save for a rainy day, and always invest for the future. Through generous mentorship from older siblings, Elias opened his first investment account at 13 and soon realized the freedom that comes when you are in the driver’s seat of your financial picture. The planning perspective he gained growing up is what he puts into practice each day as a Planning Associate at SignatureFD. He enjoys helping clients conquer their financial fears and designing a plan for what’s next. His wealth philosophy is summed up with these wise words: the clearer the vision, the less the distractions, and the easier the decisions. What is your vision? Let’s begin there.

Prior to joining SignatureFD, Elias began his career in wealth management as a financial advisor with Legacy Investment Advisors. He graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and a minor in Engineering & Management.

Active with Big Brothers Big Sisters Atlanta since 2015, Elias enjoys spending time with his little, DJ, and exploring Atlanta’s endless supply of interesting neighborhoods and food trucks. Passionate about education, he loves giving presentations on personal finance to colleges and high schools throughout the Atlanta area. He is both a resident and advocate for the neighborhoods of Southwest Atlanta: Mechanicsville, Pittsburgh, Adair Park, and the West End.
