Jeffrey T. Shaver - Founding Partner

Shaver, Jeff.jpg

Jeff’s main focus in creating ACG Wealth in 2002 was personalizing the firm’s financial services to what would benefit the specific needs of each individual client. Since its formation, the firm has either merged with or acquired more than 17 similar firms. Jeff’s hands-on approach to client relationships has rendered a client retention rate of more than 95 percent and has helped the firm grow to more than $1.7 billion in total assets under advisement.

He has been quoted in national publications including Registered Rep. and Financial Planning and has been featured in Forbes and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. ACG Wealth has also been honored as one of the Top 25 Money Managers two years in a row by Atlanta Business Chronicle as well as being voted “Best Place to Work” by his employees.

Jeff started his career in the financial services industry in 1996 following in his mother’s footsteps. After several successful years and numerous awards from A. G. Edwards, Jeff joined regional brokerage firm Morgan Keegan and Co., where he rose quickly to first Vice President. After experiencing the generalized services that traditional brokerage firms provided, Jeff envisioned a firm that was more geared toward client experience.

Jeff actively serves on the board of the Buckhead Lions Club. During his time on the board, he has helped raise several hundred thousand dollars for charities in the Atlanta area. Away from the office, Jeff enjoys many outdoor activities including hiking the Appalachian Trail with his family and attending his children’s sporting events. Jeff and his wife Jeannie have three children.
