-Emlen Miles-Mattingly


Emlen Miles-Mattingly, CEO & Founder of Gen Next Wealth, invites us to join him at the table to break bread as he shares the story behind Gen Next Wealth and the importance of cultivating a meaningful client relationship that carries on from one generation to the next.


When someone sits down in your office, it’s so much more than doing business.

Your client comes to you with some of their core beliefs about success, identity, legacy, and relationship.

The Human Advisor Podcast is dedicated to changing the conversation from how big a financial advisor’s book of business is to how well do they take care of their clients and actually help people. There’s a new breed of modern advisors who want to make a difference and do something meaningful. And in our series, we’re telling their stories.

Let’s Make This Personal

At Gen Next Wealth, we’re here to get to know you in ways that are much different than other professionals that you may hire for other facets of life. There are fewer topics that are more personal than your finances. We understand that this may be a sensitive subject for our clients. Our approach emphasizes empathy and compassion to a level that makes it feel like you’re working with us.
