Hatem Dhiab is a founding and managing partner at Gerber Kawasaki Wealth & Investment Management. Lucky to have been raised in Tunisia and France in a racially-mixed family of bankers as an only child, I learned to be adaptable, self-reliant and responsible. From an early age, I was good with numbers and entrepreneurial which helped me tremendously in my current path.
Moving to the US at the age of 18 to attend university and pursue my dream career on Wall street, I Graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in International Business and Finance at CSULA. After college, I realized Wall Street wasn't as glamorous and exciting as I initially thought. Resolved to build a career in finance, it was apparent that wealth & investment management were the most exciting and suitable places for my ethics and talents. It provided me both the ability to grow personally, help real people with tangible goals and aspirations, research and direct investments while building long lasting relationships. I received a certificate in Personal Financial Planning from Bryant University and I am a CFP® professional.
My clients, most of whom are accomplished executives, professionals and entrepreneurs all deserve modern, unbiased, independent financial advice aligned with their goals and tolerance for risk. My strength lies in working closely with my clients to develop customized investment strategies that meet the needs, integrating those investment strategies within the broader wealth management architecture and identifying new opportunities. Seeing my clients succeed and helping them scale is my greatest honor and joy. Staying stimulated, engaged while being challenged gives me pride and motivation to excel and push through the grind.
My success can be directly attributed to my ability to listen, understand my clients' needs, help them clarify and prioritize their financial goals, implement a plan of action and continually monitor and educate to ensure proper execution. Being versed in advanced planning techniques as well as complex tax issues allows me to understand the bigger picture and properly coordinate with their team of professionals.
I'm on the Board of Trustees of Selfless Love Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to transforming the lives of current and former foster kids through awareness and partnerships. A Playa Vista resident I practice cycling, Pilates, yoga and enjoy the outdoors and the beach while indulging my love to travel and wine. I'm an avid and consummate reader interested in tech entrepreneurship, world politics and business.
