Teddy W. Awuah recently joined Wealth Development Strategies, LLC with over nine years of experience in the financial services industry. He began his career at John Hancock as an Annuity and 529-college savings plan wholesaler back in 2008, then transferred to the RPS group in 2010. In 2011, Teddy was promoted to Regional Account Manager (with RPS) covering all of Texas. He was responsible for the retention and growth of approximately 180 retirement plans, which equated to approximately $3 billion in retirement plan assets. This role required him to work closely with C suite executives, advisors, third-party administrators, and participants in retirement plans. As an excellent public speaker, he also facilitated participant education meetings with three leading goals:  saving earlier, contributing as much as possible, and investing wisely.  In 2015 Teddy accepted a position as Regional-Vice President Sr. Retirement Plan Consultant with Comerica Securities.  He worked closely with lending officers to identify advisor-led retirement plan opportunities within their existing portfolios. 

Teddy’s focus on his current practice evolves around business owners, retirees, attorneys, and CPAs.  He specializes in areas that cover both the accumulation, and distribution stages of investing, which includes investment selection and monitoring, asset allocation, risk management, retirement planning, employee benefits, education funding, insurance, and much more.

Teddy is an Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF), and has a FINRA Series 6, series 7, series 63, and series 65 registered to offer securities products in Texas.  He also holds a General Lines Agent license for Life, Accident, Health, and HMO insurance in Texas, and is an Investment Advisor Representative (IAR) registered to offer fee based financial planning in Texas. He is always looking for ways to enhance his career and industry knowledge, and as such is currently pursuing a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) professional designation.

Teddy played football and earned his B.S. from Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA with a major in Business Management. 

Teddy is an active Associate Deacon at Second Baptist Church (Woodway Campus in Houston).  Originally, from the Washington D.C. area, he relocated to Houston in late 2011.  As a family man, he enjoys spending time with his wife Shante and son Genesis.  In addition, he also loves to travel, work out, read autobiographies, and play recreational sports such as golf.
