I believe in treating every client as I would want to be treated when guiding them through their financial journey.

Demetrius A. Kokales, CFP®

Demetrius has been in the finance industry since 2015. On his path to becoming a Wealth Associate with Schneider Downs Wealth Management Advisors, he gained expertise in financial planning by working with high to ultra-high net worth clients in risk management, asset allocation strategy, and retirement income solutions.

He worked closely with families and individuals to create holistic financial plans as a road map to achieving their goals and aspirations in life. In addition, he was able to instrumentally add value, quality, and effectiveness to the financial plans being built for clients. He strives to provide transparency and value to each person that he gets the opportunity to work with.
