Edward Doughty, CFP®
Managing Director and Private Wealth Advisor, CSRIC®
Ed has been a Financial Advisor in Charlotte NC for over twenty-seven years and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ since 2008. He founded Epic Capital Wealth Management in 2009 and continues to serve individual clients and their immediate families.
His own upbringing was his inspiration for wanting to help other individuals accumulate, grow and protect their wealth. Growing up in a middle-class family in South Jersey, his parents were divorced when he was 5-years old. His father was a partner in a small but successful law firm while his mother battled multiple health challenges and required governmental financial assistance. He has seen both ends of the wealth spectrum which has instilled in him the want and desire to make smart money choices, both for himself, for his own family, and for his clients.
He is a big believer in continually educating himself in the field of personal finance and therefore has a strong focus on educating his clients to help them become better managers of their own wealth. Open dialogue, clear communication, full transparency and making himself available when needed is the foundation of each and every client relationship.
Epic Capital separates itself from other firms on a number of levels, but one of the most important to Ed was his firm’s community involvement and helping to lift up the underserved and the less fortunate. His personal passion to serve is unwavering and it is evidenced by his commitment to, and involvement with, a multitude of both local and international non-profits.
In his time outside of work his number-one priority and ultimate focus are his two young children, his daughter Ellie and his son Grady. Ed also greatly enjoys the outdoors, hiking, camping, and multi-sport training and exercise. He and his wife Jenny reside in the South Park area of Charlotte.
