Zak Thompson

Wealth Advisor

As a Wealth Advisor at Sawchuk Wealth, Zak Thompson works with Terry Sawchuk to help clients navigate the often-complicated financial decisions that come with a life of wealth. Growing up, he attended St. Mary’s, where family, tradition, morals, and ethics were ingrained in him at an early age. Clients appreciate Zak’s passion for helping and seem to enjoy just spending time with him. Our clients are his highest priority, and he treats them like they are his own family.

Prior to Sawchuk Wealth, Zak worked at Northern Trust, where he advised high-net-worth clients—an experience which gives him a unique advantage when analyzing and organizing complex financial challenges and translating them into actionable recommendations for clients. Out of this role, Zak developed a deep understanding of financial markets and how to assemble customized portfolios that reflect the unique objectives of each client.

Zak holds a bachelor’s degree in finance and economics from the University of Minnesota, Duluth and has acquired his Series 7, 63, 66, and insurance licenses.

In his free time, Zak enjoys spending time with family, especially his two adorable nephews. As a former collegiate hockey player, Zak enjoys giving time back to the game by coaching youth hockey in the local area. He also has a passion for all things outdoors — Zak is an avid golfer, hunter, fisherman and snowboarder, and he loves spending time on the water. He regularly travels throughout the county to enjoy new hunting and snowboarding adventures with family and friends. More recently, he has spent his spare time remodeling his house and is looking for his next investment property.
