Jeff Foster, CFP®

Senior Partner
Wealth Advisor

As a collegiate and professional baseball player, Jeff Foster spent several years competing and learning to succeed. Now, that same drive and determination carries over from the baseball field to the financial world. He has been helping clients carefully plan for their future for 20 years. He uses his experience to help them avoid common pitfalls when it comes to saving, investing, and spending. As one of the founding partners, he helps lead our team of advisors and administrative staff. Jeff is also our Chief Compliance Officer.

Jeff is a University of Tennessee graduate and started as a financial advisor with Edward Jones in 2000, later opening an independent practice in 2006. Jeff is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) professional. For Jeff, family is everything. Jeff Foster’s favorite place to be is anywhere with his family: dinners at home, gymnastics meets, boating on Lake Loudon, UT sporting events or vacationing. Over his many years in the industry, he’s seen highs and lows within the financial world, but his number one priority has remained the same: to make life easier for his clients.

Living Invested

Almost three years ago, Jeff and his family opened their home to two out-of-town student athletes so they could train with a Knoxville-based gymnastics team. Investing in others is important to Jeff. At TVAMP, he makes it part of his job to mentor our younger advisors and interns. 

Jeff also crossfits daily, practices Krav Maga and is an active Rotarian. Jeff is an avid list maker (ever heard of the Bullet Journal method?) with the ability to see the big picture.  He says, “With big picture goals in mind, you can more easily make small, everyday decisions.” Jeff has made a few of his bucket list items reality – including playing three years of professional baseball and cycling the backroads of France and Italy.

In June 2019, Jeff and six teammates rode across America on their bikes. The Race Across America is known as The World’s Toughest Bicycle Race! They raised money for the Patricia Neal Innovative Rehabilitation Center.
