David Hunter is a Member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors

The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is the country’s leading professional association of Fee-Only financial advisors - highly trained professionals who are committed to working in the best interests of those they serve.

NAPFA members live by three important values:

  • To be the beacon for independent, objective financial advice for individuals and families.
  • To be the champion of financial services delivered in the public interest.
  • To be the standard bearer for the emerging profession of financial planning

Are you ready to simplify your financial life with a straight forward plan? Are you not sure how or if your investments are working together? Are you preparing for your retirement? If so, you are in the right place! We would love to show you how we assist our clients with these very same issues…

As an independent fee-only firm , we can provide completely objective advice and services to our clients. We have no financial incentive to recommend one investment over another. Instead, we strive to recommend the best investment for your situation.

Team Approach:
There aren’t too many firms you can retain that allow you to work hand-in-hand with more than one advisor. At HWM, we take a true team approach to working with our clients. We believe in the adage that “two heads are better than one.” Glen and David work together to develop financial plans and manage investments. Most of the time, both Certified Financial Planners are available to address your financial planning and investment needs.

We have time and resources to individualize/customize each client’s financial plan and investments. Our lower advisor to client ratio will ensure that your needs are met in a prompt manner. For example, some advisors serve thousands of clients, limiting strategic investment research, innovative planning, efficiency, and personal relationships.

Many other potential advisors will retire before you expire. Think of a relationship with HWM as a long-lasting solution. We feel that our age ranges provide you the perfect balance of experience and longevity. Our careers should be going strong to see you through retirement and possibly transition to working with your family’s next generation. This can be a powerful asset preventing you, your spouse, and your family from needing to start over building a new advisor relationship later in life.

We strive to treat every individual with respect, fairness, and integrity. Because of our high standards, we are confident our knowledge, skills, and superior quality services will become evident over time.

Our services range from one-time consultations to review a client’s financial situation to detailed financial planning, investment management and 401k services. Whatever the scope of the relationship, we seek to provide trustworthy, professional counsel tailored to fit each individual’s unique circumstances.
