Financial Advisory Partners

Today, Brightworth helps over 1,500 individuals and families across the US build, preserve, and be generous with their wealth, letting them spend more time on the things that truly matter to them. From the beginning, we built our firm to align our interests with those of our clients, so that we are always on the same side of the table with those we serve.

A critical way in which we accomplish that is by being fee-only, selling no proprietary products, and refusing to let compensation influence the guidance we provide to our clients. We are a team of over 80 professionals in Atlanta and Charlotte who are dedicated to providing independent and objective advice, taking care of our clients in the same manner we would want our own parents taken care of. By providing an outstanding depth of expertise with a uniquely personal approach, we continue to create lasting relationships with clients to help build their financial future with confidence.
