  • Why should I choose you as my financial advisor? To answer that question, we asked our current client-families WHY they chose us, and what made us different from any other firm. Here are the Top 7 answers we received: 1. Our Unique Team Ability--we encourage everyone on the GIA team to play to their personal strengths! 2. Access--each client has the same access to our team, no matter how big or small. 3. Life Advisors--we can provide insight and guidance even if we don't manage the investment. We also share our trusted partners! 4. Lead by Example--we follow the same financial advice we offer to our clients. 5. Financial Network--we work side-by-side with other members of your team, partners we trust. (ie. Insurance Agents, CPA's, Lawyers, etc.) 6.Employee-Owned--we're not publicly traded or owned by a big national firm. You will never feel like "just a number". 7. Generosity--we believe that being generous is an essential part of every financial journey.

  • How are you compensated? How will I pay for your services? GIA does not receive performance-based fees. Full compensation breakdown is found in our Firm Brochure page 2. One quarter of the blended annual fee is charged in advance and is calculated based on the ending balance of the account, as determined by the custodian, at the close of the last trading day of each prior quarter. Your first invoice will be prorated as of the date that you sign the Client Advisory Agreement and may be combined with the next quarters fee. You pay the quarterly fees by giving us written authorization to deduct the fees from your account when you open a brokerage account at Fidelity Investments. You may also choose to pay by check.
  • If you are going to manage my account, will you obtain my permission every time you buy or sell something? GIA accepts discretionary authority to manage securities accounts on behalf of clients. We have the authority to determine, without obtaining specific client consent, the securities to be bought or sold, and the amount of the securities to be bought or sold. Discretionary trading authority facilitates placing trades in your accounts on your behalf so that we may promptly implement the investment strategy. A limited power of attorney is a trading authorization for this purpose. Clients may grant GIA the authority to transfer funds to and from their account at Fidelity through a standing letter of instruction. GIA does not have the authority or the ability to change the clients instructions. Fidelity will verify their instructions and send account statements at least quarterly to each client. Fidelity will also notify the client when funds are disbursed and send an annual notice reconfirming the instructions. Clients may modify or terminate the instructions at any time.

Goodwin Investment Advisory

Tim Goodwin graduated from Berry College with a degree in Finance. Upon graduation he went to work for a local financial firm, but quickly learned that his personal values and the values of the firm did not line up. So he started his own firm, Goodwin Investment Advisory, in Woodstock, Georgia, because I saw the need for a different kind of financial firm that upheld my values of integrity, honesty and trust. A firm that operated in the best interest of its clients at all times and fulfilled my vision to lead all people to financial peace, independence and generosity.

Tim has cultivated a culture of client-focused service, helping clients become the heroes of their own finances by guiding them with GIA’s trademarked unique processes. He and Team GIA have set themselves apart as an industry leader with an experienced team as well as a trusted network of professionals. To learn more about Tim’s financial philosophy you can read Tim’s book, "Exponential Wealth: How to Create sustainable Income for Life" Tim lives in Canton, GA on a mini-farm with his beautiful wife and college sweetheart, Maureen, and three exceptional daughters (Canaan, Shiloh, and Eden). Plus, 26 chickens, 9 ducks, 3 sheep, 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 turtles, 2 roosters, 2 peacocks, and a partridge in a pear tree. He loves to sit on his front porch in the evenings with his wife and watch his girls play across the pond in their treehouse, while sipping a Kentucky mule, or a glass of wine. On nights Atlanta United is playing however, you will find him cheering in the supporter section! On Sunday mornings the Goodwin family enjoys attending and volunteering at Woodstock City Church.

Portfolio Management

Our team helps you identify risks that could considerably diminish your wealth. Through insurance assessment we partner you with top-tier private insurance solutions. While we like to encourage you to focus on what may go right with your situation, its also crucial to examine how you may be negatively impacted without proper defenses in place. It is often prudent and more cost effective to transfer risk to an insurance company to minimize the financial damage of an unanticipated event in your life or that of a loved one.
