WILLIAMSBURG — On Monday, May 17, Williamsburg Community Foundation (WCF) announced that Mr. Aahish Matani, CIMA, CPWA, CFA, was elected to the foundation’s Board of Trustees.

Mr. Matani is the managing director and a founder of the AHM Wealth Management Group of Merrill Lynch, where he has served as a financial advisor since 1999. He has trained and mentored several advisors, and served on the firm’s national diversity and inclusion counsel. He holds a Bachelor’s of Finance from Old Dominion University.

He witnessed the “American dream” from an early age when his mother emigrated from Bombay, India to New York when she was 23-years-old. Through hardwork and persistence, Mr. Matani’s mother was able to open her own business and set a fine example for her son’s future in finance.
