After experiences with several different advisors for his own finances, Sam Evans noticed the need for a different type of approach—one that allows advisors to serve clients rather than corporate interests. In response to this, Sam established Evans Wealth Management, a fee-only financial advisory firm that does something simple yet astonishingly rare: treats people the way he wanted to be treated. This involves listening, staying attuned to the needs and objectives of clients, and being proactive to ensure meeting them in time. By definition, this helps clients steer clear of the regret of succumbing to sales tactics used daily by other advisors to peddle unnecessary products. Instead, Sam spends the time to understand his clients, which enables personalized guidance to navigate the maze of financial options, without sacrificing freedom of choice or ambition. Sam knew he wouldn’t be able to place a client’s interests above the corporation’s at a large firm. At Evans Wealth Management, he’s found a way to deliver high-quality financial guidance with a personalized touch, while staying loyal to those he serves. Looking for an experienced, trustworthy financial advisor that works in your family’s best interest, without exception? Get in touch with Evans Wealth Management today.

After 20 years in numerous leadership positions in both public and private companies, I decided to use my experience and desire to positively impact people's lives in a more personal way. It started with the birth of my first child, which drove home the importance of planning for the future. That key life event, along with watching one of my family members struggling due to poor financial decisions, made me realize how important financial planning is and how it can affect people's lives both positively and negatively. I saw a real need to provide unbiased client-first advice in a world full of self-serving sales people offering products and services that were not always in the client's best interest. I specialize in assisting executives and business owners, with an emphasis on the unique needs and challenges that women and professional athletes face in today's world. Prior to joining Integrated Financial Group, I was a Partner, COO and Head of the Financial Planning Department at another Atlanta-based firm. I also worked at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management Services as a Financial Advisor. On the personal front, I've been blessed to have the ability to visit the world. Seeing how other societies live provides me important perspective around the concept of not just living to work but rather to use work and the income it creates to live the life that we want. I am not working with my clients, I spend time as a partner, mentor and father.
