History of AAF Wealth Management

AAFCPAs was founded in 1973 and quickly became known for distinctive strategic tax planning for individual clients; many family-owned entrepreneurial businesses. It was not until 2000 that we decided to get directly involved in investments after years of encouragement from clients with unmet needs for independent, honest investment advice and comprehensive wealth management. Today, AAF Wealth Management’s personalized, holistic approach is distinguished by its blend of objective investment advice, financial planning, and real-world goal setting/life planning to best meet each client’s short and long-term goals, while controlling risks and optimizing tax. 


Founded as Highsight, LLC

AAF Wealth Management was founded as HighSight LLC in 2000 by AAFCPAs and Partner, Joel Aronson, CPA, PFS with a mission to provide independent, honest investment advice.

In 2012, the firm becomes an SEC Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) firm.
