Welcome to Sovereign Wealth Management
Sovereign Wealth Management is a provider of comprehensive financial planning and investment management services, headquartered in DC metro area. Our company has roots dating all the way back to the 1980s when one of the first Certified Financial Planner Practitioners in the Area opened her doors for business.
We founded Sovereign with the goal of taking the best of what our founder and CEO Gary Korolev learned while working for some of America's biggest and most respected Financial Firms and eliminating the bureaucracy present at large companies with thousands of employees.
The result is a client experience of professionalism, respect, and responsiveness with a personal touch. Whether they are High Net Worth Individuals, Families, or Business Owners, our clients feel truly valued, as well as confident that their financial future is secure as can be.
