Petredis Investment Advisors Launched by Father, Four Siblings to Serve Greater Pittsburgh Area and Other States

The Registered Investment Advisory firm, based in Warrendale, Pa., offers strategic financial planning to multi-generational clients.

Warrendale, Pa. (May 2, 2023)
Petredis Investment Advisors today announced the launch of its fee-only, registered investment adviser (RIA) firm in Warrendale, PA., a suburb of Pittsburgh. The new RIA will be led by founding principal Charlie Petredis and principals Christian Petredis, Alexandra Cameron, Athena Petredis, and Charles Petredis, who will also serve as Chief Compliance Officer. The team, which previously practiced at Wells Fargo Advisors, is joined by two client associates, Cindy Pappert and Shana Hutchins.

"For nearly four decades, we have helped individuals, families, corporations, and retirement plans address their needs and achieve their financial goals," said Charlie Petredis. "With this transition to the RIA model, we're in the right position to maintain our mission for decades to come. With newfound independence, we will continue to put our clients first and deliver strategic financial planning to support our clients’ needs."

Petredis Investment Advisors is a multi-generational family firm founded by father Charlie and all four of his children. The group collectively brings over 60 years of financial planning experience to their clients and community. The group maintains multi-generational client relationships serving families and leverages research to drive financial planning decisions and help clients achieve their goals. Petredis Investment Advisors has approximately $881 million in assets under management and $71 million in assets under advisement as of December 2022.

Petredis Investment Advisors is working with TradePMR for technology and brokerage services. The team was attracted to TradePMR because of its commitment to delivering white-glove service and flexible technology. "When we decided to launch our own RIA, we knew we would need strong support and advanced technology from our providers. As we evaluated TradePMR, we believed that their offering would help our new independent firm meet our goals," said Petredis.

"We're excited to welcome Petredis Investment Advisors," said John Peluso, President of First Clearing. "The Petredis family has built an impressive practice, and we believe the RIA model will be a great fit for their team and their clients moving forward."
