Andrew J. Pravlik
Director Of Investments
At Pittsburgh Wealth Management Group, Andrew J. Pravlik is noted for specializing in alternative investment strategies and income-producing investment plans. As the firm’s Director of Investments, Pravlik evaluates the available strategies and develops clear solutions. Andrew’s goal is to carefully analyze the options and create a customized plan for his clients.
“When someone works with a large financial firm, they aren’t always exposed to all of the financial vehicles available,” he explains. “When people go to an independent firm for financial planning, they are not limited to a list of specific products. They are free to choose from a full spectrum of investment possibilities.”
Andrew is a licensed investment professional, earning his Series 7 (General Securities License), Series 63 (Securities Agent for States) and Series 65 (Uniform Registered Investment Advisor) designations. He is also a fully Licensed Life, Annuity and Health Insurance Agent.
He began his investment career with Hefren-Tillotson, quickly rising through its ranks to become one of the youngest vice presidents in company history. While First Vice President, Andrew was featured prominently on KDKA’s “Your Money and You” radio show. He was also a frequent contributor to the “Ask the Advisor” segment on KDKA. During this time, “Your Money and You” was the # 1 rated financial show in Pittsburgh.
With almost 25 years of experience in the investment and financial services industry, Andrew believes in working closely with his individual and business clients to provide the highest customer service. He enjoys getting to know the families he works with and strives to accomplish all of their financial and legacy goals.
On the personal side, Andrew attended Allegheny College in Meadville, Pa., graduating in 1996 with degrees in Economics/Finance and French.
