Since 2002, we have provided professional investment management solutions to a select group of individuals, families, business owners, and foundations. Meet with us and you’ll see why investors choose Hixon Zuercher.
Adam Zuercher and Tony Hixon founded the firm in 2002. The founders launched the firm with a vision of bringing wealth creation and investment management solutions that would enable our clients to achieve financial freedom. Thus, our original name, Freedom Financial Solutions, was born.
The First 10 Years
The first decade was rewarding and challenging. We started Freedom Financial Solutions in 2002, as the markets were still coming off the hangover from the tech bubble and we were still feeling the effects of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The mission of our firm was to help our clients achieve their financial goals by successfully managing their investments. That mission remains the same today. We began day 1 with zero clients, zero assets under management, a phone, a computer, an internet connection, and a dream. Today we steward over $65 million in client assets and have helped (and are currently helping) numerous clients achieve retirement, college and other investment goals.
Our Name Change
While we’ve experienced much success over the years, we’ve made some missteps as well. That’s part of the growing pains of a business. For instance, we used to sell insurance; we no longer do. We used to prepare tax returns; we decided that CPA firms can do a more efficient job. We named our firm Freedom Financial Solutions because we really wanted to be a one-stop-shop for most financial related things. We’ve found over the years that there are things we do well, there are things we are more passionate about, and there are things that others do better than us. Over the years, we’ve come to the realization that the name Freedom Financial Solutions doesn’t always accurately communicate what we do or who we are. In fact, we’ve received literally hundreds of calls over the years asking if we do debt consolidation or mortgage refinancing. Our name no longer reflects what we do. Ten years later, we simply aren’t a one-stop-shop. Our core competency is investing. It is something we enjoy and that we are good at.
With that in mind, we are excited to announce a name change. Effective January 1, 2012 the name of our firm will be Hixon Zuercher Capital Management. The new name better reflects our business and highlights the names that you’ve become familiar with as your investment manager over the years. This change in name in no way affects the level of service or investment expertise that our clients have become accustomed to.
We expect the next 10 years to be even more exciting than the first 10 years. The world is a much better place than it was in 2002. Technology alone has made the world a better place to live, work, and play. Economically, there are challenges and extreme levels of uncertainty. However, there are also extreme levels of opportunity. Over the next decade we will commit every day to finding those investment opportunities.
