Our Vision

To continue building wealth even as market conditions change, using both offensive and defensive investment strategies.
Do you seek a wealthy lifestyle? Do you want to retire early?
Would you like to give more to charity?
Do you plan to make substantial assets available to your heirs?


Then, you’ve got to make a move to reach your specific lifestyle goals – failure to do so is not an option.  Why talk to us?  We understand the signs of the times, and we know what should be done about them.


HWM was formed to offer relationship-oriented financial planning and investment guidance. We seek to grow our client’s balances in favorable markets, and to protect client’s principal in high-risk markets.

A certified financial planner will do a comprehensive plan for each investor - it's free of charge because it's important that we fully understand your current financial position and objectives.


Your financial success is important to us. We want to help as many people as possible to be successful in reaching their financial goals and objectives.

We manage client portfolios for the industry-standard charge of 1% of assets under management (AUM).  We also provide complimentary planning services to our investment clients, which includes a projection of the likelihood of achieving your financial goals, typically focusing on financial independence as the primary objective.


We charge a one-time fee of $500 to create a financial plan with actionable steps for those individuals who are non-investment clients, with a quarterly fee for advice on outside investment accounts and for ongoing financial planning services.


Call or email us. Set an online video meeting or an in-person appointment to understand what we can do for you.

12:00 TUESDAY – Stock Market Report   #110 - 4/13/2021


by Robert Holman | The Defensive Advisor

MARKET BULLISH … My rating opinion remains 8.0 (0 - 4 is bearish, 5 is neutral, 6 - 10 is bullish). The market remains bullish, but overbought and overvalued. You can expect Mr. Market to continue moving sideways-up, with occasional volatility, both bold ups (on earnings and guidance) and downs (on 10-year T-Note rate increases).

MARKET CONCLUSION. No change. Again, I don’t have much to say. The future looks encouraging for the economy and for stock prices. The primary concerns are inflation and interest rates, both increasing from excessive government spending. Enjoy, while it lasts.

CFA - Chartered Financial Analyst (or CFA®): The CFA charter is the gold standard for the investment industry. CFA charterholders enjoy a mark of the highest distinction in the investment management profession, a globally respected, graduate-level investment credential established in 1962 and awarded by CFA Institute — the largest global association of investment professionals. Passing the three six-hour cumulative CFA exams (Levels I, II, III) is a difficult feat that requires extensive study (successful CFA candidates report spending an average 3,000 hours of study to become a CFA). Earning the CFA charter demonstrates mastery of many of the advanced skills needed for investment analysis and decision making in today’s quickly evolving global financial industry.


To earn the CFA charter, candidates must master a broad-based curriculum of investment principles and commit to abide by, and annually reaffirm, their adherence to the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct. The CFA Program curriculum provides a comprehensive framework of knowledge for investment decision making and is firmly grounded in the knowledge and skills used every day in the investment profession. The three levels of the CFA Program test a proficiency with a wide range of fundamental and advanced investment topics, including ethical and professional standards, fixed-income and equity analysis, alternative and derivative investments, economics, financial reporting standards, portfolio management, and wealth planning.


The CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct, enforced through an active professional conduct program, require CFA charter holders to:

  • Place their clients’ interests ahead of their own

  • Maintain independence and objectivity

  • Act with integrity

  • Maintain and improve their professional competence

  • Disclose conflicts of interest and legal matters


CFP® (CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™): The CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, CFP® and federally registered CFP (with flame design) marks (collectively, the “CFP® marks”) are professional certification marks granted in the United States by Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (“CFP Board”). Individuals who become certified must complete 30 hours of continuing education every two years, and agree to be bound by ethics requirements in order to maintain the right to continue to use the CFP® marks.


The CFP® certification is a voluntary certification; no federal or state law or regulation requires financial planners to hold CFP® certification. To attain the right to use the CFP® marks, an individual must satisfactorily fulfill the following requirements:

  • Education – Complete an advanced college-level course of study addressing the financial planning subject areas that CFP Board’s studies have determined as necessary for the competent and professional delivery of financial planning services - including insurance and risk management, employee benefits, investments, income tax, retirement, and estate planning;

  • Examination – Pass the comprehensive CFP® Certification Examination - includes case studies and client scenarios designed to test one’s ability to correctly diagnose financial planning issues and apply one’s knowledge of financial planning to real-world circumstances;

  • Experience – Complete at least three years of full-time financial planning-related experience (or the equivalent); and

  • Ethics – Agree to be bound by CFP Board’s Standards of Professional Conduct, a set of documents outlining the ethical and practice standards for CFP® professionals.
