Advice that starts with you, not the company

Firm Summary

You may think that all wealth management firms are the same. But at TFC Financial, our clients know differently.

Our clients trust that we’ll always put their best interests first, through only the most objective advice and direct, personal attention. Our clients also rely on us to provide help and support in areas beyond their investments, often at challenging times in their lives.

As a truly independent firm owned by its principal employees, we’re free to recommend strategies that we believe will help meet our clients long-term financial goals.

TFC at a glance:

  • Operates as a wholly independent, fee-only financial advisory and investment management firm with revenues derived solely from the fees we charge for the services we provide.

Foundation

TFC Financial launched the TFC Financial Charitable Foundation in March 2018.    This foundation expresses the firm’s values and advances TFC’s commitment to promoting financial literacy and supporting the greater Boston community.

"This is something we have been considering for some time and are so pleased that it has come to fruition," said CEO Renée Kwok. "As a wealth management firm, we frequently counsel clients on charitable giving strategies. With the new foundation, we are establishing our own philanthropic legacy for the firm."

The foundation's mission is threefold: 

  • Promote financial literacy; to provide education and information about behavioral finance; 
  • Help people stay on track to achieve their financial goals; and 
  • Support local social programs. 

The initial funding of the foundation came from the firm's partners and shareholders – both past and present – via personal capital. Ongoing funding will come from the firm's annual profits. There will be no solicitation or acceptance of clients' funds.
