AssetMark, Inc., an independent provider of investment and consulting solutions for financial advisors, announced that they had signed a lease for a 4,300 square foot software development office at 101 Marietta Street NW in Atlanta, Georgia.
“We want to welcome AssetMark to its new home in downtown Atlanta as they target their solutions to the country’s more than 300,000 independent financial advisors,” said Dr. Eloisa Klementich, President and CEO of Invest Atlanta. “Our city’s abundance of tech talent, strong business climate, educational institutions, and financial services ecosystem continue to attract industry leaders like AssetMark. This announcement once again demonstrates Atlanta’s ability to bring top-tier financial technology companies to the heart of the city.”
Located in the center of Atlanta’s business district, the new office is in an area designated by the federal Opportunity Zones Program, which is designed to stimulate economic development through tax incentives for organizations investing in the community. The opening of AssetMark’s new office location will also create 13 new high-wage jobs in Fulton County.
“Our excitement about this new office is twofold,” said Charles Goldman, President and CEO of AssetMark. “This expansion is a strategic investment in future AssetMark technology initiatives, and we are proud to play a part in the creation of economic opportunity in an Opportunity Zone in Georgia.”
Atlanta has one of the country’s fastest-growing economies, and is becoming a hub of IT talent due to the city’s combination of affordable housing opportunities, local universities, and a growing community of FinTech startups.
101 Marietta Street features state-of-the-art amenities, including a fitness center and renovated meeting spaces. The building is close to two MARTA rail stations, providing optimal accessibility to Metro Atlanta, and is located within walking distance of Centennial Olympic Park, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the Georgia Aquarium, and CNN Center.
