Meg Green, Founder
Meg founded Meg Green & Associates, Inc in 1984 after looking, in vain, for the type of firm she could believe in. Today, she’s proud to be the Founder of one of the leading wealth management firms in the nation. Meg Green & Associates, a team of 12 dedicated professionals, manages over $750 million dollars for their clients, which consist mostly of wealthy individuals, families and small businesses. With her team, Meg consults with clients to help architect and implement their financial plans and investment portfolios. She espouses the value added aspect of wealth management, taking care of the wealthy, not just their wealth.
Having been talking about money on WIOD radio and NBC for years, she now answers readers’ questions in her Miami Herald column called Money Dilemmas. Her exposure in the media provides the general public with financial advice to help improve their lives, which is a legacy Meg embraces. Her many charitable activities are also commitments she covets.
Meg spends part of her time in Los Angeles, where she has many clients and gets to be with her family. Her leisure time is spent relaxing at her home in Los Cabos, Mexico with husband Richard and often with her children, Robbie Gennet and Liz Christensen, Abby Gennet and her husband Brett Scallions and her three little grandsons, Jagger, Sawyer and Kieren.
