A legacy for generations

At Zager Wealth Management, we guide you through a lifetime of investment decisions — and through the most important events of your life. Your bespoke financial plan is the bedrock of every wealth management decision. We create strategies to manage your wealth that can help fund your most important goals— purchasing a first or second home, growing or selling a business, paying for children’s education, enjoying the retirement of your dreams, or leaving a legacy for your family and the causes that matter to you.

We accomplish this by building close client relationships and delivering white glove service. We meet with all clients several times a year and on a need basis. Every detail matters, and we pay attention by listening first, then figuring out the best plan of action. We treat every client as a member of our family. Our local team has a specialist to cover every aspect of wealth management, and we leverage the vast global resources of UBS.

    Helping clients grow their wealth for their most important life events 

    One of the first things Andy shares with new clients is that he attended Riverside Military Academy learning leadership and organizational skills that are the foundation of his business philosophy today. Clients come first. Trust is earned by developing a rapport and building relationships that last — through multiple generations. Clients and referrals appreciate the Zager team’s ability to offer the right financial advice at the right time. Managing portfolios, diversifying investments, and helping with life events— for children’s education, purchasing a home, and a retirement plan that lasts a lifetime — the Zager team sees clients through family’s milestone events, both challenging and happy.

    Leading an elite team of financial advisors

    Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, Andy learned about investing as a boy from his grandfather and father. He always wanted to help people manage their money, and to teach — qualities that make him a born financial advisor and leader. Andy mentors and inspires his team by giving them the tools to succeed. Each team member specializes in a specific set of skills backed by the resources of UBS. Clients appreciate that every member of the Zager team really listens, and every call and email is answered before the day’s end. Exceptional service often includes special events such as financial workshops about topics of interest such as retirement, legacy planning, and philanthropy.

    Holistic financial advice. A path to client success.

    The financial services industry always felt like home to Casey, whose father was a financial advisor and wholesaler for over 30 years. Casey’s love of people, his ability to problem-solve and the fact that each day brings different challenges have made his own 19-year career in finance a perfect fit for him. His experience as a financial analyst at Morgan Stanley and Cardlytics gave him the opportunity to hone his accounting skills and analyze companies from a fundamental and different perspective than investing. At the Zager Wealth Management team at UBS, Casey conducts research, provides sound advice, designs investment strategies and handles trading.

    The priceless look in a client’s eyes

    When dealing with clients, Casey believes in levelheadedness, loyalty and resilience. He knows that long-lasting, multigenerational client relationships are built over time. That takes knowledge, patience and the experience to craft individualized financial and investment plans that take into account insurance needs as well. Casey also prepares Financial Goal Analysis (FGA) reports, fields investment questions and oversees client relationships. But what makes him happy on any given day, is the look in a client’s eyes when they realize their goals have been achieved.

      Empathy means putting ourselves in our clients’ shoes

      Marek has always wanted to work in a field where he could serve others. With over 22 years of experience in the financial industry, Marek has been through many market cycles and has shepherded clients to manage and grow their wealth. He is grateful to be part of a team that leverages each member’s knowledge and offers outstanding client service combined with the strength of UBS resources. Marek believes that one of the essential jobs of a financial advisor is to make clients feel heard and understood. That takes great listening skills and empathy. After all, he is helping clients manage their money—one of the most important aspects of their lives.

      The vision to build and protect wealth

      Marek believes that building wealth is all about helping each client build the life they’ve always wanted. Because each client’s needs and financial goals are unique, the Zager Wealth Management team works to create a customized financial plan for every client. This is followed by regular portfolio review meetings throughout the year, to stay the course or make adjustments that depend on the changing market and the client’s needs. While growing a client’s wealth is a priority, protecting it, is of equal importance. A shared vision with clients and honest communication are key to forging trusting long-term relationships.
