Our Story and Services


We are a six-member wealth management team led by two highly experienced Financial Advisors, Christi Edwards and Jason Pharris.  Christi and Jason are hands-on investment managers with a true passion for their craft.  Both are steadfast in the belief that they should never recommend a security that they would not consider for their own portfolios.  The team works with some truly exceptional people.  Our clients have built thriving businesses, led major corporations, and achieved extraordinary success in the sports and entertainment industry, while raising families and contributing to their communities.  Such active lives often leave little time to address the complex challenges of managing wealth they have created along the way.  That's where The Edwards Pharris Group steps in.

We serve as our clients' go-to advisors.  No situation our clients face is too complex.  We help create and implement comprehensive wealth management plans based on specific needs and goals; work to help our clients protect and grow their assets; and help clients create a legacy of support for the people, causes, and institutions that enhance their lives.
