Athishay Gangadharan, a managing partner and founding member of Evoke Wealth Management, brings more than 17 years of experience in financial services to the team. As a wealth advisor, he offers customized solutions and advice to high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals, affluent families, healthcare professionals, corporate executives, professional athletes, endowments, and private foundations.
Before founding Evoke, Athishay served as one of the highest ranked senior wealth advisors at TIAA for more than nine years, where he managed a portfolio of clients with over $1.4 billion in assets directly under his advisement across 15 states. He also led, mentored, and managed a team of wealth advisors to serve clients in a number of capacities including financial planning, asset protection, tax and risk mitigation, investment management, trust, estate, and intergenerational wealth transfer planning.
Known for his integrity and unwavering commitment to the financial well-being of his clients, his remarkable success as an advisor and leader can be attributed to his personal life experiences growing up in a family of modest means in Mumbai, India. Athishay himself struggled as a young adult in the United States, working several jobs to pay for his education while also financially supporting his family back home. He has seen first hand how a solid financial foundation can change the course of not only one’s own life, but also that of loved ones. Ultimately, this was the impetus behind the vision of Evoke Wealth Management, an organization committed to providing unbiased, objective, and conflict- free solutions to help those devoted to a purpose greater than themselves.
Athishay holds an MBA in global management with a specialization in finance, an executive MBA in economics, and he also maintains certifications in trust and estate planning. He has served as a senior advisor to the Florida Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (FAPI), and he is a former board member of the Indo-US Chamber of Commerce.
Athishay lives in Colts Neck, NJ, with his wife and daughters. When not working, you will most likely find him golfing or gardening. A homebody at heart, he enjoys cooking, traveling, and spending quality time with his family.
