Service Offerings & Fee Structure

As an independent firm, we have the freedom to choose the services and solutions we offer and are unencumbered by corporate policies or the needs of shareholders. Here, you get a real relationship, a personal rapport with your advisor and a team of professionals to help you reach your goals and objectives.

Financial planning is a process, not a product. It can transform lives and enhance the quality of your life. Some of the services below work independently and some work in tandem with other offerings to bring all the pieces of your financial life together. Our mission is to help you gain greater confidence, capability and when possible to help you elevate your money to a higher level of productivity and safekeeping.

    Are you on track to meet your goals? Are you confident your current investments are positioned to support you?  The Personal Wealth Plan™ was designed to assist you in better understanding your financial position and as a “how-to” on integrating your resources with your goals and objectives.  This highly-adaptable plan is perfect for those who are seeking a second opinion, are interested in establishing savings and/or investing goals and for those who are seeking advice before making high-stake financial decisions.

      In an environment of robo-advisors and with most other advisors clustering to outsource their investment management responsibility, Hunt Country Wealth Management is rare in keeping your portfolio management in-house. The art of investing requires skill and competency, and if you are working with an advisor who outsources, you are not talking directly to the strategist behind your accounts. We believe in-house management gives you access to greater control and transparency, as well as often experiencing lower fees.
