Tyson is also deeply involved in Covid-19 relief by serving as sponsor liaison for Fridays at the Funky Uncle, a weekly live music broadcast that raises money for local musicians and gig workers in association with the Fat Bankers Social Aid & Pleasure Club, a sub-group of the Krewe of Tucks. In the past year, the Funk Fund has raised more than $360,000 and helped over 501 musicians and gig workers.

A word from Tyson:
“There is nothing more rewarding than the process of building relationships with clients and watching a plan we’ve created together as it develops 5, 10, and 20 years down the line. It’s rewarding to work towards making a difference in their lives. That is what it’s all about: Our clients, their families, their future.
Beyond our clients, our team is the most valuable asset we have at Faubourg Private Wealth. I learned early in my career that a team environment is vital to a successful, healthy business. We’ve created a company culture that is 100 percent focused on doing what is best for our clients, and we foster an atmosphere that allows our advisors to show clients that they are our top priority – not just in word or principle, but in actions and results.”
