Investment Management

Some years ago, partners Charles Webb and Alan Gaylor both believed there had to be a better approach to customized investment management than was normally available from the commission-based financial services industry.

Since 1996, The Alder Financial Group has provided guidance to clients throughout the country from convenient offices located in Atlanta, Georgia and Birmingham, Alabama. Over those years, one question seems to be asked repeatedly: "How much money do I need to be wealthy?" The answer to this question varies from one individual to another. We believe that what you should be asking is "How do I become financially independent?" To us this means attaining peace of mind and the freedom to live the lifestyle of your choice. The road to financial independence can be long and at times unclear. As an independent investment management and financial planning firm, The Alder Financial Group was founded with the goal of being a reliable guide along this journey. In a world crowded with conflicts of interest and lack of objectivity, The Alder Financial Group has developed a trusted partnership solely devoted to working in the best interest of our clients.
