About Our Process

Hi, my name is Antonio Fortson, and I'm a wealth advisor with Truist Wealth in the great city of Columbus, Georgia. As a native, I've had the privilege of working with high net worth clients and their families in Columbus and across the United States. As a child, I remember my family showing me the value of a dollar. I recall cutting my own grass to in the summer, working with my uncles on a weekend, and placing loose change into coin rolls to exchange for dollars. Because my family is supposed meet some money at an early age, I learned the value of saving for items that I wanted and also learn how to give back. I realized I wanted to help other people, just like my family helped me and be a part of an industry that impacts every person in America. I'm an advocate for my clients, and they rely on my ability to not only listen, but also listen between the lines. They know I'm here to help them develop a customized financial plan tailored to their specific goals, priorities, and values. Our team of specialists provide an extra layer of confidence to make sure every critical part of our client's financial picture is addressed. Our clients know we're bringing sound advice and available solutions to help make their financial dreams a reality. Outside the office, I enjoy traveling, spending time with family, and supporting local nonprofit organizations. I've spent more than 15 years helping clients accomplish their financial goals and enhance their financial lifestyle. I look forward to getting to know you and working closely together. Every client I work with has a vision. I can't wait to hear yours.
