How Do I Know HFM Is a Good Fit for Me?
You want to work with a financial advisory firm whose values and commitments match yours. We typically work with clients who:
- Lead busy lives and value spending their limited spare time pursuing their passions – whether that’s growing a business, creating family memories, or making a difference in their community
- Prefer to delegate all of their financial planning and investment management to a team of experts
- Seek ongoing financial advice that continually adapts to life’s transitions
- Have at least $500,000 in investments (with some exceptions, read more in our FAQ)
- Align philosophically with our investment approach focused on their goals, guided by a plan, and rooted in academia and research (read more in our FAQ)
- Desire experienced and empathetic advice from a team that makes long-term relationships a priority

We will review how we can help you and decide whether it makes sense to work together.
