Our Story

Advizr was created as a result of the collaboration of passionate entrepreneurs and a small team of very smart and hardworking financial professionals. After 12 years as a client-facing advisor, our Co-Founder and CEO Hussain Zaidi imagined a disruptive financial planning application capable of assisting tens of thousands of financial advisors in providing financial plans to all of their clients. He shared that idea with his co-founders whom he had met at business school and Advizr was born.
