As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to guide you confidently through the three stages of retirement. - Burt Hutchinson, CPA, CFP®
GUIDANCE FOR THE THREE STAGES OF RETIREMENT: Our wealth management firm in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, DE, specializes in working with you through the three stages of retirement: Uncertainty, Stability, Reflection
Burt Hutchinson is a Wilmington, DE and Rehoboth Beach fee-only financial planner. Integrated Wealth Advisors, LLC provides comprehensive wealth management, retirement planning, estate planning and tax planning to help retirees and pre-retirees and widows and widowers organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Burt Hutchinson is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
Burt Hutchinson started his working life as a lineman for Delmarva Power, but an investing book changed his career course. He realized sound financial advice can give people the confidence and security to enjoy their lives to the fullest, including retirement. He wanted to use his growing expertise to help others. Today, as a CPA and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) professional, Burt is honored to guide couples and individuals through the three stages of retirement, from uncertainty to stability to reflection.
After earning his CPA certification, Burt worked for one of the “Big Four” accounting firms—PricewaterhouseCoopers. But he soon realized he wanted to make a more personal impact by working with people rather than corporations. This realization led him to start Integrated Wealth Management.
Burt envisioned the independent, fee-only wealth management firm as providing the financial building blocks people need to make smart financial choices. For Burt, there is nothing more gratifying than when a client says: “I put my retirement papers in—time to start the next stage!”
Burt, his wife, Kimi, and daughter, Taylor, are residents of Lewes. When not in the office, he and Kimi are usually playing golf or hitting the gym. As a family, they enjoy traveling and being foodies. The Hutchinsons take pride in their community and enjoy supporting local charities focused on children and education.
