Fee-Only & Fiduciary
The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is the country's leading association of fee-only and fiduciary financial planners.
Dirk J. Huybrechts is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) professional and Registered Investment Advisor (RIA).
Dirk’s “second” career as an investment manager and financial advisor evolved from a previous occupation as a real estate broker and investor. One of his early decisions as a broker was to plan his exit from the real estate business. His ambition was to build a financial foundation that would enable him to leave real estate, a sale-based business, and transition to financial advice, a knowledge-based business. His goal was to combine his life skills with the knowledge attained through education and training as an investment manager and financial advisor, for the benefit of others.
After more than 25 years in real estate, he began his transition to investment manager and financial advisor. His education included earning the Certificate in Personal Financial Planning (PFP) from UCLA and graduating from the UC Irvine Financial Planning Residency Program. He successfully completed the Certified Financial Planner course work and received the CFP® designation after passing the rigorous qualification examination. He is approved as a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) in the State of California. Professional credentials and association memberships require more than 30 hours of continuing education annually to maintain currency in the business.
HFM Advisors is the product of that education and training. It was founded to help individuals, families and small businesses understand and manage the financial decisions of everyday life. His responsibilities at HFM Advisors are to support clients with their investment management, portfolio construction and financial planning needs.
Over the past several years he has contributed to several “Money Makeover” articles featured in the Los Angeles Times.
He is a member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) and the Financial Planning Association (FPA). As an active member of NAPFA, he has served on the National and Regional Board of Directors. He previously served on the Board of Directors for the Los Angeles FPA Chapter.
HFM Advisors offers investment management, financial planning, retirement planning and cash flow planning services for individuals, families and small businesses as a fee-only service.
HFM Advisors' goal is to enhance your understanding, knowledge and decision-making when faced with the financial decisions of everyday life. Whether the issues are simple or complex, we believe everyone can benefit from objective financial advice, not just individuals with a "high net worth."
HFM Advisors has a fiduciary relationship with our clients. A fiduciary is defined as: “An individual in whom another has placed the utmost trust and confidence to manage and protect property or money. The relationship wherein one person has an obligation to act for another's benefit.” In other words, we put our clients’ interests above all other considerations.
HFM Advisors is not affiliated with an investment firm, insurance company or broker dealer. We do not sell products or receive commissions on product sales or "soft" dollar compensation. We are paid by our client for the service and advice we provide. As part of our fiduciary obligation we disclose how we are compensated and any conflicts of interest. This ensures the advice you receive is impartial and not tainted by financial considerations.
It is our mission to collaborate with our clients to define their financial goals, resolve financial issues and manage their financial assets. We put our clients' interest first, act with integrity and honesty, and strive for excellence in every aspect of our practice. Our recommendations are based solely on clients’ circumstances, needs and goals. Our success is measured by your success in achieving your goals.
