Derek T. Erwin, CFP

Derek’s easy-going, generous nature makes him a comfortable fit for clients from day one. But his passion for investments began long before he joined the firm. As a young boy, he saw his grandfather Virgil Smith’s enthusiasm for following stocks. That enthusiasm proved infectious, eventually leading Derek to pursue a Bachelor of Science in business economics from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois.

In 2006 Derek jumped at an opportunity to join his uncle on the Marty Smith Financial Team at AG Edwards. Today, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends. Derek is a baseball coach at the Boys & Girls Club and a basketball coach at Rockford Christian Elementary.
