Take Your Financial Journey With Us

Your Life. 
Our Mission.

The path to financial independence can be a wonderful, exciting journey. Our mission at ATLas is to create lifelong partnerships with our clients founded on trust and anchored in a deep understanding of each client’s financial goals. As fiduciaries, our promise to our clients is that their best interests will always be at the forefront of every decision we make.

“In my work, I enjoy connecting with people and being able to provide friendly expertise. I try to simplify financial issues with stories that my clients can relate to, and I use humor to make things easier.”

Christian Mauser, CFP®, CIMA®

Christian is a Lead Wealth Advisor and Investment Strategist at ATLas Investment Advisors. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM and Certified Investment Management Analyst®, Christian has a passion for providing customized investment and financial planning solutions to individuals and families – particularly those in or approaching retirement. Since graduating from the University of Georgia where he received his degree in Family Financial Planning, Christian has accumulated over a decade of financial planning and investment management experience, working for large firms from Central Pennsylvania down to Atlanta, Georgia.

With his diverse background in planning and portfolio management, Christian works to create customized investment strategies that aim to help ATLas clients achieve their goals while minimizing risk. At ATLas, Christian uses his technical expertise to advise our clients on portfolio design strategies, risk tolerance, asset allocation, asset location, tax-loss harvesting, and more. Additionally, Christian believes that investor behavior is a critical factor in generating returns and meeting long-term financial objectives. There are inevitable ups and downs in long-term investing, but Christian thrives on coaching and educating ATLas clients along the way.

When he is not working, Christian lives in Cumming, GA, with his beautiful wife Randi, daughter Elliott, son Sawyer, and Great-Golden, Lily. He and his family enjoy spending time outside, swimming, boating, fishing, walking, hiking, (not) doing yard work, and exploring all that north Georgia has to offer.

Our Values

Who we are. How we serve. Why we’re here. What you can always expect.

Mutual Respect

We believe in the power of every client’s individual story. We celebrate and welcome all forms of diversity. Come as you are: Our door is always open.

Integrity

As your financial advisor, we believe we have the most important job in the world. We do not take our fiduciary responsibility to you lightly. In fact, we take it so seriously that every decision we make as advisors and as a firm is centered around your best interests.

Transparency

Honesty is the cornerstone of trust. As your financial partner, you can count on complete candor. We will always tell you what you need to hear, even when you may not want to hear it. We’ll be just as open about what we know as what we don’t know.

Community Involvement

Just as our clients are building their legacies, our greatest hope for our practice is to leave the world a better place than we found it.

Drop us a line. We’d love to meet you!
