for Living on and Passing on Your Resources



Thorson Financial Estate Management, Inc. specializes in working with retirees and those preparing to retire by customizing your financial life in two primary categories. Those are: Investment Management and Estate Planning.

We do this for the purpose of maintaining your quality of life in retirement and ultimately leaving your resources to the people and organizations you care most about. In short, we provide professional guidance for living on and passing on your resources.

Additionally, we head up the Modesto Chapter (4394) of the American Financial Education Alliance (AFEA).
