Tom moved to his family's hometown of Richmond, VA in 1994 and became a financial advisor with EdwardJones and later PaineWebber. From 2002 through 2005, Tom lived in Seattle, WA where he had the unique opportunity to serve as a financial advisor to a number of professional athletes with Wells Fargo Investments.

An avid cyclist and triathlete, Tom was the founding president of the Richmond Triathlon Club. He has competed in numerous triathlons over the years, including two Ironman races.

Tom met his wife Jennifer during a Super Bowl XLII gathering, where the two NY Giants fans discovered that they have more in common than a (sometimes) championship football team. Their son Ian attends St. Christopher's School, the same school from which Tom's father graduated over 60 years ago. The Wright family is completed by the lovable dog Reagan, yes, named after the former President.

Next Investments’ Value-Added Investing™ approach can be more powerful than investment returns alone. Whereas the proper investments can make tens of thousands of dollars, the right financial advice can potentially save hundreds of thousands of dollars by helping you avoid costly mistakes.

Value-Added Investing™ begins with an in-depth analysis of your current investments, a customized portfolio and personalized financial advice.

Investment Management

Customized portfolios designed for your specific investment goals.

By merging passive, active and alternative investment strategies, we create portfolios that can take advantage of whatever the market throws at them. We create opportunity for maximum upside potential and minimum downside risk, taking the worry out of investing towards your goals.




Financial Advice

Personalized advice to help you avoid costly financial mistakes.

From complex situations such as large estates or business succession planning to personal financial advice, good advice can ensure that each piece of your financial puzzle fits together correctly to reveal the path to your goals.


In addition to helping you better understand the specific investments you own, Next Investments advisors help you realize if you are saving the right amount for your goals, paying too much in fees, or taking too much risk. 


As part of the Free Investment Review you receive:

  • Analysis of current holdings and a report highlighting portfolio diversity
  • Personalized attention focused on your goals and dreams
  • Projection on whether your current financial plan is on track to ultimately fulfill your dreams
