Terry Sawchuk is the Founder and Chairman of Sawchuk Wealth. With over 30 years of experience as a financial advisor and business owner, he has successfully guided his clients through every economic downturn. Terry’s knowledge and passion for macroeconomics have made him an authority figure in the field, regularly appearing in the media to share his perspective on financial topics affected by politics and world events.
Since 1990, Terry has helped clients pursue their financial lifestyle goals, work towards a work-optional lifestyle and navigate through the critical financial events of their lives. Terry’s business philosophy remains the same as it has been from the beginning: to build long-term relationships with great people, and his clients—relationships based on trust. His longest-standing client has been with him for 30 years, a fact which is a source of pride for the firm.
Terry is a highly sought-after personality on radio and TV as a thought leader for the financial services industry. He served as the host of “Wealth Strategies” on WJR for many years and as the co-host of “Real Estate and Business Insiders” on the local ABC affiliate. More recently, he has appeared in numerous financial publications, including U.S. News & World Report, Barron’s, Yahoo Finance, and Forbes, and he regularly appears on America’s Voice Live and The Steve Gruber Show. His latest endeavor, The Lion’s Den Podcast, was created to share information and insight from various thought leaders and financial experts. By far, though, he most looks forward to researching and gathering information for the updates he shares with his own top clients.
Terry holds a National Social Security Association Certification (NSSA), as well as his Series 6, 7, 24, 63, and 65 securities registrations.
The oldest of five siblings, Terry comes from a large Ukrainian family. He was extremely close to his grandparents and spent a great deal of time in their home growing up, where he learned the traditional family values that still hold true today. With so many younger siblings, Terry developed leadership skills and patience, which have come in handy, as he is now himself the father to five children. His most cherished moments are spent with family, nothing makes him happier, not even winning a golf tournament.
Terry’s intensity in everything he does is not exclusive to working with clients; it is far-reaching and evident in everything he pursues. During the summer, Terry is an avid golfer, regularly competing at the amateur level in various tournaments around the state. His passion for health and wellness remains a top priority for him, and he loves to research and implement new ways to improve his strength, endurance, mobility, health, and wellness. In recent years, he has enjoyed boxing classes, meditation, yin yoga, kettlebell training and biking. He especially enjoys spending time with his wife – even if she cannot stop talking about her “latest” idea for Sawchuk Wealth – she is the apple of his eye.
