Alex has been a financial advisor in Richmond since 2009, working primarily with individuals and families as well as a few small businesses and local non-profit groups. Regardless of age, account size, or complexity, the main focus is always personalized goals and helping bring clarity to the assets somebody has and what they ultimately need them to do. Alex graduated from Christopher Newport University with a BS in business administration with concentrations in both economics and finance and is a native of Windsor, Virginia. He now lives in Midlothian with his wife and two young daughters, and while most free time is spent these days keeping up with the girls, you may occasionally find him out on the James River, on a bike trail, or just enjoying the many other great things Richmond has to offer.

 

“My main goal is to make good advice both accessible and approachable. It’s a true privilege to serve as a trusted partner and walk with clients as they navigate their financial journey.” – Alex M. Robinson

Gary Wilson

Financial Advisor

As a financial advisor, it is my primary role to understand the needs of each client individually. By first seeking to understand what is most important to you, I can then help you identify and achieve your goals by partnering with you in your full financial picture. I work with individuals, families, and business owners who are looking to organize, build, protect, and transfer their wealth. I take great pride in helping to create a potentially generational impact in the lives of my clients. Most importantly, I believe that no client should be treated as an asset under management or a dollar sign.

I enjoy the challenge of developing complex wealth strategies, which often require collaboration with my clients' other professionals such as CPAs and attorneys.

I was born and raised in Southern California; Orange County to be exact. However, because my wife, Kristy, and I wanted our family to be raised in a different environment, we moved to Midlothian, Virginia, in May 2016. We have never once looked back.

We are raising one boy and four girls: Emma (16), Logan (16), Chloe (14), Kate (14), and Gwen (7). Yes, that is two sets of twins! Additionally, we have an English bulldog named Sergeant and four cats, Harry, Marv, Mavis, and Marty.

In the small amount of free time I have, I enjoy golfing, coaching my kids' sports teams, playing music, working with my hands fixing and building things, and a good bourbon.
