As a fee-only financial advisor, I help you to have perspective about your financial situation and the financial markets. I work hard to help you keep your financial life “between the ditches.” As a fiduciary, I will always work in your best interest. - Pat Fair, CFP®

Collaborative Financial Stewardship with Your Life at the Center

Pat Fair is a fee-only financial planner based in Augusta, GA and serving clients across the United States. He is a partner of 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, Pat is never paid a commission of any kind and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

With 20+ years’ experience and over a decade working with the team at AP Wealth Management, Pat Fair brings a focused vision for investment management and financial planning. Pat serves as a Financial Advisor on the team, and also as the company’s Director of Research, Portfolio Manager and Compliance Officer. Based on his experience and education, Pat’s philosophy focuses on prudent, wise, and strategic actions. He says he is always looking to keep clients “between the ditches” when it comes to investment decisions. 

Pat joined AP Wealth Management because he was frustrated by the focus of banks and institutions that prioritize their initiatives and goals rather than what was best for the clients. Being a fiduciary is something Pat is very passionate about and is one of the reasons he became a partner at AP Wealth Management. As a partner at the firm, Pat serves as a fiduciary for the firm’s clients. This means that he will act in the client’s best interests due to the fact that he does not have pressure to serve corporate initiatives.

Pat strives to provide uniquely crafted, personalized financial management solutions that empower clients to attain their financial objectives, build their wealth, and protect their legacy, while embracing the highest standard of excellence.

Pat earned his MBA from Augusta University and his Bachelor of Science in Management from Georgia Institute of Technology.

When he’s not working, Pat enjoys working out with his F3 group, a men’s workout group, in which he is very involved. On most Thursdays, Pat can be found at the Augusta Exchange Club, a group focused on raising funds to support local organizations making a difference in Augusta.

Pat also enjoys spending time with his wife, Kelly, and their four children. With three of their kids now “launched,” he and Kelly now love getting the full family together for an occasional vacation to the beach.

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.
