Tarik Bakir, CFP®, CIMA®
Owner / Financial Advisor
As a Financial Advisor at TNT Asset Management, I specialize in investment planning, business planning, tax planning, and estate planning. I believe that these areas in financial services are challenging and dynamic, and I enjoy bringing my expertise and creativity to the unique situations that they present. I am motivated by meeting new people and tackling individual challenges and opportunities that come with each new client, as they keep me engaged and excited as a financial professional. I have always been interested in helping others, and I have found that financial services was a solid way to assist.
I have worked in the financial services industry for over eight years. Before I began my career as a financial advisor, I attended Texas A&M University, where I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Economics. After receiving my undergraduate degree, I decided to serve in the U.S. Army. Later in my life, I also obtained a Master of Financial Economics from Ohio University. Since I have been employed at TNT Asset Management, I have received both the Certified Investment Management Analyst® (CIMA®) designation and the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) designation. I strive to provide value to my clients by developing a deep understanding of the client’s situation and maintaining the ability to communicate effectively and offer sound financial advice to help guide the clients toward each of their goals.
I currently live in Round Rock, Texas with my wife and our two-year-old son. I am very passionate about economic development and helping those in need, and in order to fuel that passion, I am involved in the Rotary Club of Austin University Area, which allows me to contribute to charitable events and activities. In my free time, I enjoy playing soccer, golf, and snowboarding, as well as spending time with my family, traveling, and discovering new places. So far, I have visited and made memories in over 30 countries around the world.
