Tahir (TJ) Jiwan

Founder & CEO

TJ, a longtime business owner and financial services professional, likes to tell his clients that “in life there are and will be many times that you are knocked down, but the key to success is never allowing yourself to be knocked out.”

As the founder of Moxy Financial Group, TJ Jiwan is highly-regarded as one of the financial and insurance services' leading professionals. He joined our sister company, Ashford Advisors in 2015 with more than 10 years experience helping individuals and businesses pursue their financial potential. Today, at Moxy Financial Group, he has surrounded himself with a team of professionals who strive to provide the highest quality of financial expertise and superior service.

TJ credits his success in this industry to his personal relationship with some of the leading business owners and executives who have impacted his life. As he says, “these relationships were formed in my childhood, on the basketball court, at football practice and at my community social events. I had no idea that they would one day turn into lifelong business alliances.” The drive, energy, work ethic and conviction that TJ possesses comes from his mother and father who both migrated to America in the 70s in search of the American Dream. “I get my work ethic and energy from my mother who is a successful business woman and I got my drive and conviction from my best friend whom I had the privilege of calling Dad,” TJ likes to say.

Prior to founding Moxy Financial Group, TJ lived in the Rogers Park area outside of Chicago, where he was the Managing Partner at Jiwan Financial Group and spent 8 years as a leading Senior Partner with New York Life Insurance Company from 2003-2011. Taufiq Jiwan, TJ's father, was also a successful agent with New York Life.

TJ is a graduate of Glenbrook North High School, where he played wide receiver on the football team. He has a passion for coaching not only other advisors but also athletes. While in Chicago, he held an Illinois coaching license and coached at Glenbrook North High School and at his community center. TJ and his wife, Alia enjoy a fun and active life with their two young children in the beautiful Johns Creek area. Alia is both his partner in life and work. And he is proud to say that his children are the greatest of all his achievements.
