Ben Messinger Financial Advisor HFG Trust

Ben Messinger, CFP®

Financial Advisor

Ben was the first advisor to join our founder, Ty Haberling. Ben came to HFG as a new graduate of Eastern Washington University where he majored in finance and minored in economics. He joined HFG in 1997 and has helped clients navigate the three largest market declines since the great depression.

Through HFG’s early years Ben wore many hats including Financial Advisor, Marketing Director, IT Director, and Vice President. As a senior advisor of over 25 years, Ben enjoys working with clients across a broad spectrum of professions and lifestyles.

Outside of the office, Ben served as a Boy Scouts of America volunteer for over a decade and served two terms as a director on the Kennewick School Board. In his spare time he has competed as a member of the Washington State rifle team, and in the 2019 National Matches achieved the distinction of President’s Hundred Rifleman—the honorary rifle team of the President of the United States. Ben’s greatest loves are his bride of over 25 years and their three children. He also enjoys science, the outdoors, exploring, and building things.
