ATLANTA—November 11, 2016—SignatureFD, a financial design and advisory firm headquartered in Atlanta, was selected as the winner of the 2016 Best-in-Business IMPACT Award™, part of Charles Schwab & Co., Inc.’s IMPACT Awards®, which recognizes firms who demonstrate excellence in the business of independent financial advice.

To that end, SignatureFD has established client communities such as SignatureWOMEN® and SignatureEXEC® to bring together clients to meet, learn, grow and have fun.
