About Our Process

My name is Margaret Wright and I'm a Senior Wealth Advisor. I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia and serve client families locally and throughout the country. I've been in financial services for more than 15 years. The reason I became a wealth advisor is my passion for serving the individual. The personal approach in establishing a lifelong relationship with my clients is the most rewarding part of what I do. When I was a Portfolio Manager, I focused on the dollars and cents, but being a Wealth Advisor is well beyond that. The balance sheet is the foundation, and my investment experience keeps performance front of mind. However, for generational wealth, it's also about purpose. It's about preparing your loved ones. It's about instilling your values in the next generation. And I'm fortunate to have a team of specialist at Truist to help me address each of these areas for my families. I love what I do. I love sitting next to a family and helping them shape their life and the legacy they want to leave. If you think Truist Wealth can help your family, it would be an honor and a pleasure to serve you.
