About Us


The firm was started over 40 years ago by our Managing Director, Ed Newton, in Peachtree City, Georgia. Known as Newton Financial Network, the firm was the first wealth management firm to be located in Fayette County, the fastest growing county in Georgia at that time. Building on his experience, he started with only a handful of individual clients. By focusing on his Core Values (Excellence, Trust, Focus, & Collaboration), Ed grew the firm to be one of the most successful and respected firms in the Atlanta region.

In the late-70s, Ed decided to use his passion for flying to pursue a career as an airline pilot. In five and a half years, Ed went from his first lesson to being a Captain at a major airline. During this time, Ed maintained a small but thriving firm. In order to accommodate both careers, Ed moved the firm to Charlotte, NC in 1986. This proved to be a fortuitous move as the Charlotte area was in the midst of an unprecedented period of growth.

Due to the Trust clients placed in him, Ed was able to maintain the great majority of his client relationships. Initially, he was able to work from his home. Through the firm’s goal of Excellence in dealing with clients, the firm once again began growing at a rapid pace, necessitating that he add staff and move the office out of his home.

Ed took advantage of his seniority and began flying only international trips, exclusively on the weekends, to places like London, Rome, and Frankfurt. This enabled him to Focus on providing the best possible service to his clients which resulted in the firm continuing to increase its growth rate.

In 2011, Ed joined forces with Archer Investments in order to provide his clients with professional portfolio management and access to additional wealth management tools.

After 34 years of flying the world, Ed hung up his Captain’s hat in early 2016. The memories, friends, and clients gained over these years provides the perfect transition to the next phase of the firm.

Newton Wealth Management is positioned to provide its clients with unparalleled service and value.
