Junko Rivka Horvath, CEO of Fujiyama Wealth Management, was recently honored with the Five Star Award for Wealth Management, marking her 10th time having earned this achievement.
For Horvath, who now takes a full set of fingers to count her awards, the momentous recognition validates a career filled with hard work, dedication, and a passion for helping people achieve their financial dreams.
“I am humbled to have received this prestigious award over 10 times, which is very rare in the industry,” she said. “This award has strengthened my commitment to becoming a better wealth manager to help our clients.”
She added, “Without our loyal clients who trust us and let us manage their business and family finances, I wouldn’t have earned this special award.”
Horvath owes her success to her deep commitment and drive in acquiring advanced knowledge and expertise in order to fully service her clients’ portfolios.
As a wealth manager, Horvath:
• Creates clients’ financial, investment, income generating, charitable, and legacy plans and strategies and finds ways to reduce their tax burdens by custom-made solutions;
• Assists clients who are in financial transitions such as retiring, inheriting, selling a business, becoming a widow, and getting divorced;
• Educates the public by speaking at various organizations about changes in retirement rules, its implications, and actions people should take.
Professionally speaking, Horvath is a member of the following organizations: Financial Planning Association, National and Georgia Chapter; Certified Financial Transitionist Institute; Ed Slott’s Elite IRA Advisor Group; Elite Advisor Inner Circle Group; Japan America Society of GA; and she volunteers with the AARP Speaker Bureau.
The Five Star Wealth Manager Award is given to the top three percent of financial advisors in Atlanta; Horvath is one of only 27 of the approximately 8,500 financial advisors in metro Atlanta who have received the award more than 10 times.
Horvath is also an author, having published, “Women In Financial Transition,” which is currently available on Amazon.
Horvath was raised in a traditional Japanese family where her father was a corporate executive and her mother a homemaker. Her father managed the household’s finances and her mother “didn’t know anything about money except the allowance she received from her husband monthly.” Inspired by her mother’s lack of financial independence, Horvath was determined to “be a completely independent woman.”
Upon moving to the United States, Horvath realized “many American women, those who are older, tend to give financial responsibilities to their spouses.” This led her down the path of becoming a wealth manager, “in order to help women become aware of the importance of financial independence and to gain the confidence in doing so.”
Horvath lives in Atlanta with her husband, Stephen, and her mother whom she brought over from Japan along with her father, who has since passed. Junko and Stephen have two married daughters, Dr. Yael and Adina.
