More About Travis

Travis Hornsby is a finance expert and entrepreneur who is passionate about helping highly educated professionals and their families navigate the complexities of student loan repayment, take charge of their finances and achieve their goals.

As the Founder and CEO of Student Loan Planner®, Travis has consulted on a staggering $800+ million of student debt, more than anyone else in the country. With his Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®) and Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designations, as well as a license to sell insurance in all 50 states, Travis has the expertise to guide his clients toward financial security. He loves writing about student loan repayment strategies, physician mortgages, investment strategies, and personal finance. Travis is particularly adept at assisting people who have a range of $50,000 to $1 million in student loan debt, finding that 90-95% of his clients save thousands of dollars on their student loans long term after having had a consult with him.

Before he started Student Loan Planner® in 2016, Travis retired in 2015 at age 25, and traveled to three dozen countries to further educate himself on all things finance, blogging, running a website, and more. Travis was also a bond trader for one of the world’s largest investment companies, Vanguard, managing municipal bond mutual funds.

In addition, he authored two books on financial independence and money management, Managing Money in Your 20s and 30s and 25 IS THE NEW 65: How to “Retire” Outrageously Early and Do Whatever the Heck You Want.

Travis now lives with his wife and two kids in Chapel Hill, where he’s doing his best to survive the preschool years and chasing toddlers around. Despite years of football ineptitude, he cheers on the Florida Gators and also loves hiking and camping with friends.
