Tanner Friesenhahn

Research Assistant

Tanner was born and raised in New Braunfels TX, descending from a long line of early Texas settlers, hardy people who worked the land and had a close bond with all living things. Like those that came before him, Tanner loves to hunt and fish, spending whatever spare time he can muster in the outdoors. He can also hold his own on the golf course as well! He possesses a healthy blend of old school wisdom, strong values and an impeccable work ethic mixed with the financial wizardry of a numbers guy.

He obtained his Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a major in accounting from Texas State University and is looking forward to that last test which will qualify him as a fully licensed financial advisor. He began his work life as a state sales tax auditor but soon realized that his true passion is working with people, helping them solve real life issues and not just counting beans for the government.

He joined Pontem Financial in 2021 as a Research assistant and has grown tremendously over the last two years, absorbing the nuts and bolts of operations. As a licensed advisor he will be helping us craft financial plans, attend our client meetings, create reports and analysis and help us keep our clients happy.

Tanner currently resides in New Braunfels with his college sweetheart Makayla and his beautiful baby girl Harper Paige.  He is excitedly looking forward to raising his daughter and improving his skills as he transitions to a new career path.
