Written on April 7, 2020

Waverly Advisor’s own Gavin Gillison, CFP® was featured in the Birmingham Business Journal’s “Wealth Management: Table of Experts Series” published in early March in which he offered his expertise on common topics surrounding financial planning and wealth management*. The “Table of Experts Series” is a popular segment of the Birmingham Business Journal that asks Birmingham professionals pertinent questions about their areas of specialization.

In the article, Gavin weighed in on topics relevant to the current financial planning climate, including what changes he predicts for financial planning in 2020, what questions to ask before choosing a wealth manager and the potential economic slowdown’s effect on wealth management.  Gavin also spoke to Waverly Advisor’s philosophy behind maximizing clients’ wealth in the Business Journal’s piece:
