About My Practice
GreerWalker Wealth Management LLC was founded in 1997 as the wealth management affiliate of GreerWalker LLP, the largest certified public accounting firm founded and based in Charlotte. We are a Registered Investment Advisor offering comprehensive financial services and are committed to helping clients achieve their long-term financial goals. Harmonizing each client’s goals with asset appreciation, tax obligations, charitable giving and core values allows GreerWalker Wealth Management to take a truly holistic approach to managing wealth. Focusing on the permanent means we do not fall into the market timing trap, nor are we predisposed toward individual investments or asset classes. We stay with the tried and true; keeping each client on track with a specifically designed plan, making adjustments as necessary and providing clear information.

About Geoffrey Owen
I joined GreerWalker Wealth Management in 2016 and offer a broad scope of financial advisory experience, ranging from traditional CFP® ingrained financial planning to full-scale implementation of wealth strategies. The RLP® ensures the utmost expertise in planning. My Certified Divorce Financial Analyst™ designation also indicates knowledge of the complexities in planning for a person experiencing divorce. As a result of my relationships with local business owners, I have built a niche as the financial advisor to employer-sponsored retirement plans. In this capacity, I support plan sponsors with a myriad of needs. Until we sold it in 2011, my wife and I also owned Owen’s Bagel & Deli, the popular SouthEnd eatery in Charlotte. We met at Miami University (OH) and later lived in Pittsburgh where I received my MBA. We are entrenched in Charlotte with our two daughters where we are active in our church, the Dilworth neighborhood, our kids' schools, and various civic organizations.

Ideal Clients
GreerWalker Wealth Management clients come from all backgrounds and life experiences. They include both individual and corporate clients, who share a consistent theme of valuing a team that executes a plan and is there every step of the way. Our commitment to our clients is not only our fiduciary responsibility, it is deeply ingrained in our firm culture. Developing and committing to the long view means balancing wealth accumulation and wealth preservation strategies, with discipline, focus and accountability.
