About Us

  • Kamran W. Hedjasi
    First Vice President, Financial Advisor,
    Family Wealth Advisor, Senior Portfolio Manager

    As a First Vice President, Portfolio Manager, and Family Wealth Advisor, Kamran is primarily responsible for all of the day to day investment decisions and managing the client portfolios.

    Kamran's tenure with Morgan Stanley dates back to 1999, a time when the financial landscape was one of extreme euphoria during the height of the 'internet bubble'. Recognizing the risk that euphoria brings, his goal was to take a balanced approach to help clients enhance, preserve and transition their wealth. Kamran uses this experience to help his clients get through all market environments.

    From the beginning, working with his wife, Sima, has provided them with the strong foundation needed to give their clients the personal attention and individually tailored solutions designed to help meet their needs. As the market continues to test individual investors and their families, an even-keeled approach to managing both assets and liabilities is a core tenant to their program.

    With a background in Business Administration and Finance, Kamran is able to deliver exceptional client service while managing your investment needs. Kamran graduated from the California State University, Northridge, with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration.

    Kamran & Sima currently reside in La Crescenta with their two young boys, Shant and Alex. Their free time is dedicated to their local school, basketball and A.Y.S.O soccer, where Kamran has volunteered for Region 88 as a coach since 2011.
  • Sima Keoshgerian
    Associate Vice President, Wealth Management Associate

    As an Associate Vice President, Sima’s primary role on the team is to handle the financial planning and LifeView analysis for all clients. She is responsible for ongoing client relationship management and marketing for the team.

    Sima started in the industry as a financial advisor alongside Kamran in 1999. Their comprehensive, financial-planning based approach has afforded Kamran and Sima the ability to form working relationships with trusted industry professionals as they help their clients navigate through their various life cycles. Sima graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology.

    Sima & Kamran currently reside in La Crescenta with their two young boys, Shant and Alex. Sima is an active member of her local community, school foundation and PTA.

    Sima has her Series 7 & 66 licenses issued by FINRA, and her CA Insurance Licence (0C95626).
  • Molly Ryan

    Molly brings 27 years of experience to the team. Molly began her career in Corporate Finance and Investor Relations, before moving to the retail side of the business. She started at the old Dean Witter in San Francisco before transferring to the Pasadena office in 1995.

    Molly is a Pasadena native, and moved back to her old neighborhood in 1995 to be near her family, where she purchased a Condo in 2001. Molly enjoys going to Art Films at the local independent theatre, and loves to travel to Europe once a year. She volunteers at the SPCA and a local Catholic Charity.

    Molly has her Series 7 and 66 licenses administered by FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority).

Wealth Management Process

  • DISCOVER
    Our relationship begins with a thorough understanding of your immediate needs, priorities and goals. We’ll discover details about your credit and basic finances and help you take precautions to maintain credit and preserve assets.
  • CREATE
    We develop a tailored roadmap to begin to help you rebuild your wealth and achieve the outcomes you seek. We’ll identify the strategies to help you:
    • Plan for retirement
    • Provide healthcare protection for yourself and your children
    • Revise your estate plan
  • ACT
    Next, we help you implement the strategies we formulate together, taking into account special circumstances, such as alimony, child support and tax consequences of selling large assets like your home.
  • ADJUST
    Achieving your goals requires vigilance and flexibility. We help monitor your progress and make adjustments as life evolves, markets and tax laws shift and priorities change.
