Trevor Bakir, CFP®
Owner / Financial Advisor
As Owner and Financial Advisor at TNT Asset Management, I am motivated by using my listening and communication skills along with my background in finance in order to help my clients better understand their goals and plan for their success. Financial decisions are complicated and stressful, and making the wrong decision can have devastating impacts, so I strive to make the decision-making process for my clients as easy to understand as possible to encourage them to make the right choices. I specialize in tax reduction for business owners and professional individuals and helping families who are doing well but haven’t yet had the chance to plan long-term for their financial future.
I have served in the financial services industry for over five years. Prior to beginning my career at TNT Asset Management, I worked as the Senior Financial Analyst and Senior Accountant for Goodwill Central Texas. I also served in the U.S. Army, and I was stationed in Japan for some time. I attended the University of Texas at Austin, where I obtained my degree in corporate finance and a minor in accounting. After starting to work with TNT Asset Management, I gained the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) designation in 2019. I have always felt a calling to serve others. I consider the ability to listen deeply as one of my best skills, and I use that skill to understand goals, and develop processes to help achieve them. When I was presented with the opportunity to join my dad in the business, I saw how my skills in helping enterprise budget, forecast, and create strategic plans for years could translate into helping individuals.
I currently live in Austin, Texas, with my wife, Jinjuta "J" Bakir. We met when we were both serving together in the Army in Japan. We both enjoyed seeing the Japanese sites, and that turned into a relationship. Now, she is almost done with her masters degree in accounting from St. Edwards University, and she aspires to be an audit accountant in 2023. Her Thai background expanded my life to include all of my Thai family. When I am not helping my clients develop solid financial plans, you can find me serving as Treasurer for the United Nations Association of Austin, traveling, hiking, and browsing craft beer.
