Our Firm's History

In January 1988, Tony Smith established Anthony Smith Advisors, Inc., serving as President and financial advisor to senior executives of major public and private companies.  He also provided  financial planning, tax, estate planning, and investment advice, working with other key advisors.  Then in December 1991, Tony closed the firm when one client needed assistance in going public. 

In May 1994, Tony re-opened Anthony Smith Advisors, Inc. and eventually moved the offices from downtown Atlanta to its current location in Buckhead, to be nearer to the majority of his clients.  Since the move to Buckhead, the firm has enjoyed tremendous growth, adding several advisors and administrative support to help manage the expanding client base and the assets under management. 

Currently Anthony Smith Advisors, Inc. operates under an employee ownership model, with Tony and several other principals sharing equity in the firm.
