Twenty-six-year-old Alabama firm affiliates with established Atlanta-based financial advisors

Atlanta, GA – October 24, 2018 – Atlanta Financial Associates, an award-winning, independent financial advisory firm, today announced that Biggers Blackmon, LLC, a wealth management firm formerly based in Eufaula, Alabama, will be joining their operations. The principals of the two firms came to know each other through a mutual association with Commonwealth Financial Services and enjoy a similar approach towards operations and customer satisfaction. Combined the two firms will unite more than 50 years of financial advisory services.

“This affiliation is a great move for the clients of both firms,” said Atlanta Financial Associations (AFA) co-founder and partner Cathy Miller.

“We’re better together and our clients will reap the rewards in terms of more efficient operations, expanded customer service and, in some instances, reduced fees,” elaborated Biggers Blackmon founder Janis Biggers.

Biggers Blackmon was founded by Janis Biggers in 1992. Biggers’s experience with a big-four accounting firm as well as in financial operations management with an agri-business company paved the way for the formation of her wealth management practice.

Atlanta Financial Associates was founded by Cathy Miller and Julianne Andrews in 1992. They were joined by Rick Henderson in 2012 and made the announcement of an evolutionary change in their business, becoming an independent Registered Investment Advisory (RIA), earlier this year. The joint initiative is a nod to the success of this transition.

As part of the combined efforts, partner Chris Blackmon will be permanently relocating his offices to Atlanta. Janis Biggers will continue to see clients by appointment only in Eufaula.

After the affiliation is complete, the combined firms will be known as Atlanta Financial Associates and continue to conduct operations at the AFA offices located at 5901-B Peachtree-Dunwoody Road, Suite 275, Atlanta, GA 30328.
