Alfred Sams CFP® Managing Director

Alfred believes investment management is more art than science. He enjoys helping clients put together the puzzle that financial planning and investment management can present, and finds it exciting to see the pieces of that puzzle work together to create a desirable picture for the client. In most cases, Alfred sees multiple routes that can be taken to pursue an individual’s financial goals. That’s why his team is excellent at getting to know a client well enough to understand which route will be most suitable for them.

Money should be a blessing, but Alfred understands the burden it can sometimes bring. He encourages clients to think about the effect their wealth will have on the relationships in their lives, as well as how it could influence the motivation of future generations.

Prior to joining Raymond James in 2017, Alfred was a private financial advisor and senior vice president with SunTrust Investment Services for 16 years. In 2001, he earned a bachelor’s degree in business management from the Terry School of Business at the University of Georgia. Alfred has also acquired his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification. By voluntarily completing the CFP Board’s rigorous certification process, Alfred has taken an extra step to demonstrate his professionalism. As a CFP® professional, he has committed to meeting the board’s continuing education requirements and practicing with higher ethical standards.
