Specializing in Professional Guidance
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).

As an IRS approved, 501C3, non-profit organization, our mission is to empower Stanislaus and San Joaquin Counties to take control of their finances by providing unbiased financial education. We encourage you to visit the AFEA Modesto Chapter website at https://myafea.org/chapters/modestoca to learn more about the classes we offer throughout the year.
