Michael Hosford


Michael Hosford, a native of Bastrop, grew up a little differently. He moved out of the house when he was 14 years old due to a challenging home-life. This left an impression and left him wanting to learn and understand how money worked.

After working four years at a Wal-Mart during college, Michael launched Synergy, an independent financial advisory firm, during his senior year at Texas State University where he graduated with a bachelor of business administration degree in finance in 2001. In 2002, he was asked to speak for a large financial services firm at their leaders’ conference in Hawaii. In the same year, Hosford was named to American General Life’s prestigious Legion of Honor.

Hosford has spoken all over the nation to clients and advisors during the past 17 years and has qualified for the Million Dollar Round Table’s “Court of the Table” 13 times and “Top of the Table” nine times, placing him in the top 1 percent of financial advisors in the world.

In addition to helping hundreds of teachers understand their pension plans, Hosford has helped many high-net-worth individuals, including NFL and MLB professional athletes, properly structure their wealth distribution plans.
