Yusuf Abugideiri, CFP®

Financial Planner

Yusuf Abugideiri, CFP® earned a B.S. in Finance from Virginia Tech’s CFP® Certification Education Track, a CFP® Board-Registered Program. He is currently pursuing an M.A. in Economics at George Mason University.

Yusuf is a member of the Financial Planning Association® (FPA®). He has served on the Financial Planning Day and Career Day committees through FPA’s National Capital Area chapter and is currently serving on the chapter’s board as the Director of PR, Media Relations and Communications. Yusuf is a member of FPA’s NexGen community and is a graduate of FPA’s Residency Program.

Yusuf is co-chair of the Recent Alumni Board of the Pamplin College of Business at Virginia Tech; he visits campus frequently to speak in financial planning classes. He also makes regular visits to The Washington Center to speak about financial planning and assist students with their career development. In his free time, Yusuf enjoys watching sports and movies, working out, and spending time with friends and family.

Client Focus: As a Financial Planner, Yusuf works with the Financial Planning Team to implement strategies and recommendations that help clients to achieve their Live Big® goals.

Current Update: As former Yankee great Yogi Berra once said: “it ain’t over ‘til it’s over.” However, it doesn’t look like Yusuf will be boasting about his fantasy football team over the holidays with his in-laws; of his three teams, that team is the worst performer and is almost mathematically eliminated from playoff contention. Things are looking good, however, for a repeat as champion in the YeBu league!

Aside from fantasy football, Yusuf is looking forward to continuing his pursuit of a master’s degree in economics – he’s enrolled in a course called Law and Economics and is excited about the material set to be covered. He’s aiming to graduate from the program in December 2016.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
