Scott Hamilton 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
We specialize in providing professional financial advice to individuals and families from all walks of life.
We set no minimum net worth, income level or investable asset level requirements in order to accept prospective clients.
HFP’s compensation is based solely on hourly fees. We don’t accept commissions or referral fees or any other third-party compensation, thus assuring clients that financial advice is delivered solely with their best interests in mind.
Our approach is therefore unlike that of many financial planners, who accept commissions which may result in higher-cost products, and diluted performance returns. HFP considers the fees inherent with various financial products before making recommendations, with a focus on recommending those with very low fee structures.
We have no affiliations with banks, brokerage firms or insurance companies. As a result, our research and analysis is not confined to a limited scope of options.
Our clients implement their plans and maintain total direct control of their investments. They do not place funds under our management.
