Edzai Chimedza joined Tobias Financial Advisors in June 2019 as an associate financial advisor. He is currently working toward earning his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional certification. Having already passed his Chartered Financial Analyst Level 1 examination, he will soon be resuming the remainder of the CFA curriculum so he may earn the right to use the Chartered Financial Analyst designation. This combination of credentials will equip him to ably serve our clients long into the future.
Born in Guyana and raised in Zimbabwe, Edzai came to the United States to pursue a degree in biology. He ended up switching to economics, earning a bachelor’s degree from Florida State University, followed by a master’s degree from Florida Atlantic University.
Edzai has worked in different roles throughout the financial services industry. He began his career in asset management, creating sophisticated options strategies for high net worth individuals, hedging portfolios and implementing income-generating overlay strategies. He transitioned into wealth management, enjoying the personal interaction with clients, helping them achieve their goals and empowering them to take control of their financial lives.
Missing the sunshine, his flip flops and the ocean air, he returned to South Florida from New Jersey to join Tobias Financial Advisors.
In his free time, you’ll find Edzai relaxing with his family, binge watching a good show or coaching his children’s sports teams. When his children allow, he also enjoys reading a good book.
