History of Building Relationships

Never Just a Financial Transaction—Always, Always about People

25+ Years of Bringing Financial Resources

We are a New York based practice. We help New Yorkers dream big and remain strong. Neighborhood businesses and nonprofits experience firsthand how thoughtful, data-driven financial planning and analysis can lead to expanded operations and increased competitiveness.

Lower East Side Tenement Museum

“The Tenement Museum’s expansion and the exhibition ‘Under One Roof’ exist because of ThinkForward’s help. Sunil and his team’s hard work, forethought, and planning resulted in smart, cost-effective funding solutions. We can keep telling the important story of American immigration.”

Affecting Change at the Neighborhood Level

Sunil Aggarwal formed ThinkForward Financial after a successful twenty-year career in development finance that included a top private investment bank. He also worked with the New York City Economic Development Corporation and numerous public agencies to affect change at the neighborhood level through capital investments.

Local Impact, Long-term Gains

Sunil envisioned a new kind of financial advisory firm, one that could offer both economic development and real estate funding services. He recognized that local community and business organizations searching for cost-effective financing solutions would benefit.

Diverse and Inclusive in Practice

ThinkForward is 100% owned by Sunil Aggarwal, an Indian American, born in Kenya and educated in the US, UK, and India. The firm is a NYS/NYC certified MBE. Our primary mission is helping advocates for social justice and economic equality meet their financial objectives.
