Cam Monroe, CPA

Cam founded Advanced Financial Services in 1990 and began working full-time with retirees and those planning for   retirement. His goal is to help clients increase their retirement income without losing their money. Cam is a CPA and licensed Insurance Agent. He graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a degree in Accounting and became a Certified Public Accountant. After 14 years as an accountant, Cam sold his successful Jasper CPA practice to form AFS.

At AFS, one of the unique added values is the opportunity to benefit from Cam’s tax background. In today’s economy especially, it is an advantage most don’t have – almost 40 years of real life experience in the tax and retirement business.

“If I make a suggestion to my clients, it’s because I would suggest the same solution to a member of my own family in the same situation.”

Cam grew up in Dallas and now lives in Jasper with his wife of more than 40 years, Kim. His family includes two children and seven grandchildren. Cam is an avid golfer and also enjoys hiking with his wife and watching his grandchildren’s sporting events.

An AFS team member since 1998, Trae holds a degree from Carleton College in Minnesota and worked in the media prior to joining AFS. He also coordinates most correspondence with clients and prospective clients.

“The stock market has dropped in half two different times since I’ve joined AFS, but we’ve been able to help keep our clients happily retired.”

A Jasper resident since 1981, Trae and his wife have three sons. He enjoys coaching, playing and watching virtually all sports.
