CLEVELAND, OH, July 11, 2011 – Fifteen years ago Azim Nakhooda started his financial services career. Today Nakhooda is the managing principal of Cedar Brook Financial Partners, LLC (www.cedarbrookfinancial.com), one of the region’s largest wealth management firms, according to Crain’s Cleveland Business 2011.

Over Nakhooda’s 15-year career he has served as Cedar Brook’s chief investment officer, director of investments for Cleveland Financial Group, and as a specialist in philanthropic portfolio management for Fidelity Investments.

Nakhooda’s clients benefit from his deep background and experience, as he is able to develop sophisticated investment strategies beyond typical retail advice. “During my 15-year financial advisory career, the capital markets have experienced historical volatility. My clients and their portfolios have persevered because of their commitment to our research process and long-term asset allocation strategies. As the investment business has become increasingly commoditized, it’s gratifying to work at Cedar Brook with successful, smart, and responsible clients who value sophisticated, customized advice,” explained Nakhooda.
