Founder, Wealth Advisor
Toby Lafont founded Parish Wealth Partners to help families and business owners build wealth and maintain that wealth so that they can enjoy what truly matters in their lives. Prior to founding Parish Wealth, he was a managing partner with an LPL Advisory Firm with over 21 years of experience in the industry.
It is his belief that most individual’s meaningful purpose does not revolve around “worrying about their investments”. He feels it is normally bigger than that and his team at Parish Wealth Partners are committed and focused on providing financial confidence so that they can live their life by design.
He is a ’96 graduate of Nicholls State University where he obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Finance and was also a 3 year letterman of the Nicholls State football team. He obtained his Series 7 & 63 in 1997 and also has earned his Chartered Retirement Plans Specialist certification through the College of Financial Planning in 2006.
When not in the office, you will find Toby with his wife Jenny and their two boys Paxton and Reece enjoying life outdoors.
Together they enjoy fishing, snowboarding, downhill mountain biking, hiking and watching just about any football game they can catch when time allows. He also enjoys coaching Paxton and Reece within their football and baseball teams.
