Private Wealth Management

Jeff Colbath

Vice President

Direct: (404) 461-5133

Philosophy & Approach

Jeff joined Stephens in 2012 and has over 40 years of industry experience. According to Jeff, “Wealth management planning can often seem complex. My goal is to eliminate the ‘Wall Street jargon’ and serve as a sounding board for clients, to identify their immediate needs and long-term goals. Then I am able to educate my clients on the appropriate products and strategies for now and in the future. Even the most complex plans are based on a few basic principles and can be built one block at a time.”   

Lisa Dierks-Unkefer, a registered sales assistant since 1988 with more than 35 years of administrative experience, supports Jeff.
