About Elliott Weir, CFP®, MBA
Helping Widowed Women Find Financial Peace
My name is Elliott Weir, the owner of III Financial. I’ve been working with clients like you since 2004. Come to think of it, it has been longer – before I officially started as a financial planner! Let me explain…
I started my career as a technology geek, having earned a Computer Science degree from Southern Methodist University (Go Ponies!). Once I graduated I secured a great job with Ernst & Young LLP as a technology consultant to Fortune 500 companies.
Then on August 20th, 1997 my life changed forever. After a brief battle with cancer, my father passed away at the age of 50. I suddenly found myself helping my mother with insurance, investments, attorneys, CPAs, and more, because my father was the one in charge of these things for the family.
Why I Share This With You
This formative event explains a lot about who I am, about III Financial, and about what you can expect from me. I choose to work with widowed women because I want to have a meaningful and direct impact on their lives, as I did for my mother.
It took me years to piece it all together into my true calling. In that time, I continued with Ernst & Young, left to earn my Master in Business Administration (MBA) at the University of Texas’ McCombs School of Business, and spent a short while at IBM Tivoli. Then the light bulb went off and I became a financial adviser in 2004.
