With lessons learned from his father; who is a self-made businessman and mother, a successful banker; Ahmed embarked on his entrepreneurial career at an early age. In high school, he launched an e-commerce company focused on clothing and apperal with sales from around the world. In college, he started a telecommunications business for reselling cable, phone & internet services in the Northern Virginia area.
Since joining Merrill Lynch in 2012, Ahmed has honed his skills as a resourceful financial advisor who makes it his business to “come through for clients” and others. He quickly developed an appreciation for educating clients and creating awareness around important financial concepts such as “the time value of money”, “dollar-cost averaging" and the historical long term effects of "market timing”.
Ahmed holds the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) certification awarded by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. in conjunction with Georgetown University. Ahmed also holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Finance from George Mason University’s School of Business. A strong proponent of cultural awareness – especially when it comes to understanding each client’s comfort with investing – Ahmed lived with his family around the world, including Dubai.
Currently, Ahmed makes his home in Ashburn, Virginia. In addition to being an avid traveler, cyclist and runner, Ahmed finds the time to provide leadership development for the NCAC Boy Scouts of America. Having lived in the Northern Virginia area for over 22 years, he strongly believes in the notion of giving back to the communities in where we live and serve.

*Peace of mind is an aspirational state of mind that clients hope to achieve. There are no guaranteed results following completion of the Goals-Based Wealth Management process because markets can fluctuate and investments can lose value. Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Advisors work with clients to help them understand how the goals based wealth management process can help to address their concerns, financial situation and priorities.
Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, I can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can I offer an approach that is built around your life priorities and the ongoing advice you need to help you manage fluctuations in the market and changes in your life. Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals.
As Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Advisors, we will sort through the financial complexities of your life, helping you build a customized investment strategy to pursue your goals.
We put you first, every day.
Getting to know you is our primary goal.
Drawing from our experience and the best thinking of Merrill, we will build a strategy that reflects your unique needs, priorities and financial situation.
We will work to help you stay on track, regardless of what the markets are doing.
