Clayton Quamme is a fee-only financial planner based in Augusta, GA and serving clients across the United States. He is a financial advisor at AP Wealth Management, an independent registered investment advisory firm that provides comprehensive financial planning through The Lifetime Financial Solution™, investment management, and tax and estate planning to help clients organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Clayton is never paid a commission of any kind and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
Clayton Quamme joined AP Wealth Management as a fee-only financial planner in 2019 bringing with him over a decade of experience working as a financial planner and investment advisor. Clayton is passionate about the commission-free business model that allows him to sit on the same side of the table as the client, serving as a fiduciary for them.
Clayton also currently serves in the Georgia National Guard US Army as an Intelligence Officer. He has served our country in both active duty and in the reserves. This experience influenced his passion for a disciplined approach when it comes to setting life goals, financial planning, and investment decisions.
I help clients simplify their financial lives. Personal finances are complicated to start with, so I work hard at simplifying the entire process by focusing and prioritizing the things they can do to improve their financial situation. We want to optimize, not complicate the financial situation.
Clayton views wealth as more than just the tangible asset or number seen on a net worth statement. He believes it’s deeper than that. “Understanding the numbers is certainly important, but to truly measure wealth, we must consider intangible items like being able to invest time in your family and community, and leaving a worthwhile legacy to future generations,” Clayton adds.
When he’s not in the office, Clayton enjoys working out and staying active as much as possible. This includes making memories with his wife and two kids by traveling, playing board games, camping, and spending time on Clarks Hill Lake. He also enjoys playing golf and racquetball, fishing, hunting, and reading. He starts his day with an F3 workout (along with fellow AP Wealth Advisor, Pat Fair) — something he says always makes the week better!
Clayton’s personal motto for life is “Press On!” which leads to one of the most unusual things on his bucket list – to hike the full Appalachian Trail, all 2000+ miles of it – which usually takes 5-7 months to complete.

If you are looking for a strong, long-term partnership but lack the time and expertise to create a solid financial plan and manage your own investment portfolio, then you have come to the right place.
It could be that you have already achieved significant success and are looking for a better financial management partner. Perhaps you have recently sold a business and have new assets to invest or you have recently inherited wealth.
Possibly, you are nearing retirement and want to ensure a smooth transition – one filled with all the resources you need to live the life you envision, with the potential to pass down a legacy to the next generation.
Maybe you’re earlier in your career and starting to build for the future. If you are unsure where to begin and could use some professional advice, the good news is at AP Wealth Management, you do not have to be wealthy to begin a relationship with our team. If you expect your investable assets to grow to $1 million or more, we’d like to speak with you and explore the possibilities to help you realize your dreams and goals.

AP Wealth is passionate about these more meaningful life pursuits, too.
Having sufficient resources to, ultimately, do what you want to do, go where you want to go, live life without financial worry, and contribute to your heart’s content is what good financial stewardship provides.
