Fee-Only & Fiduciary

The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is the country's leading association of fee-only and fiduciary financial planners.

Bryan Hankla is a Knoxville, TN Fee-Only Financial Planner serving Knoxville and all surrounding areas. Resource Advisory Services, Inc. specializes in providing objective financial planning to help clients build, manage, grow, and protect their assets through life's transitions. Bryan Hankla is a NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisor and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional.

I graduated in 2003 with a Finance Degree from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.  Shortly after graduation, I discovered Fee-Only Financial Planning and began working for Resource Advisory Services in 2004.  I obtained the Certified Financial Planner™ designation in July 2006. 
I am a member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) as a NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisor.  I continue to work diligently to expand my financial planning knowledge and skills.  Education is an integral part of Resource Advisory Services because it enhances our ability to serve clients and help them achieve the goals they value most.
Most of my free time is spent with my wife, Ashley and two young children – Jayden and Caylor.  We live in Knoxville, Tennessee and enjoy participating in our children’s extracurricular activities – Football, Basketball, Soccer, and Gymnastics.      


There is more to money than money®.  

This is an expression we use often, because it quickly reflects our understanding that financial health is more than managing an investment portfolio.  Financial health is about building and enjoying wealth - which requires balance.  The best investment returns reasonably available, even in the best of economic times, are not nearly as important as comprehensive management of financial resources. 
In other words; managing income for optimum allocations among investment contributions, debt reduction and enjoyment of day-to-day lifestyle is important.  In your future, dollars you contribute to investments will be a much larger portion of your total investments than returns. Reducing your liabilities should eventually eliminate debt payments, which are a drain of investment resources.  Progress in these two aspects of your future net worth can guide appropriate expenditures for life’s amenities in the present.  Building wealth does not have to be drudgery.  Confidence from regularly measuring progress, while considering the events that affect it and ways to improve it, can enhance enjoyment of your wealth-building pursuit.
