About Me

Hi, I'm Aaron Terwedo. After completing my military career, I knew I wanted my civilian life to reflect one of my deeply held values - serving and helping others. I set out to have a positive impact on the lives of people I worked with in any way I could.

When I started with Terwedo Financial Services, I didn’t expect to feel as passionate as I did about financial planning. My intention was to work with the company while I worked my way through a law enforcement program. However, after spending time with clients, it became clear that I had found the place where I could make an impact.

Pre-retirees often desperately need financial guidance, but don’t realize it before it’s too late. Planning for retirement is a challenging and stressful time in their life, and all too often details fall through the cracks. It’s our goal at TFS Advisors to walk with our clients through this transition and give them a comprehensive financial planning experience. We focus on organizing their finances, and pulling in other professionals as needed to ensure every aspect of their financial lives are addressed and accounted for.

Of course, we also understand your life is about so much more than your money. We encourage our clients to start thinking about their retirement 10-15 years before taking the leap. This way they can feel confident about their financial future but, more importantly, we can help them find clarity around the type of lifestyle that will bring them fulfilment in this next chapter.

Our clients come from every walk of life, and live all over the country. They have big, exciting goals for themselves and their families, and are passionate about living life to the fullest. When they look for a financial planner, they’re seeking a lifelong collaborative partnership.

We pride ourselves in helping our clients from their mid-career to and through retirement. Clients often come to us looking for a partner in their financial life, and as the stress of career and life strains their calendar, they need a team they can count on. As they continue through their career, we help them to visualize their ideal retirement and navigate the transition to their next chapter with peace of mind.

Other clients come to us with only a few years until retirement (if they haven’t made the jump already!) and are in need of a team who can help them to clarify their goals, create a strategy for their retirement finances, and work toward leaving a legacy that’s meaningful to them.
