Successful investing begins with a thorough understanding of your financial goals. HFG Trust provides access to a customized roadmap based on your individual needs.

Estate Planning & Administration

Creating an estate plan can help manage and designate the valuable assets you leave behind and provide next steps for how each type of asset will transition to your beneficiaries.

Our advisors assist clients with resourcing the required documents for a successful estate plan, allocation of individual endowments to each benefactor, as well as utilizing tax strategies to ensure your loved ones gain the most from their inheritance.

Services such as estate sale assistance, probate assistance, and the sale of a home or other personal property are also offered.

debt management

While financial debt is a common burden for many Americans, implementing the right strategy to pay it off can often be complex and time consuming.

Our financial advisors meet with clients to go over their individual interest rates and types of debt accumulated, such as credit card debt, personal loans, and medical bills. We work with creditors on behalf of our clients to craft a repayment plan that fits within their monthly budget, allowing them to begin their journey toward a successful financial future.

Retirement Planning

Retirement planning is the centerpiece of your financial plan. It begins with identifying key goals and objectives and building a funding strategy to suit your unique needs. Our value comes from quantifying your On Track status and determining whether adjustments need to be made.

There are many different types of investment accounts with varying tax treatments and regulatory guidelines. We simplify these for you and help you select the appropriate one based on the goals you have identified.

Cash Management

Cash management is a financial strategy that can be utilized for personal and business banking needs to maximize your available funds while balancing the known and unknown costs of your future.

Being able to meet your cost obligations while maintaining a healthy cash flow for regular expenses and investments is a key function of cash management. Our team offers sound advice when it comes to managing receivables and payables, maintaining liquidity for unforeseen expenses, and how to best handle idle funds that can be reinvested to grow your personal wealth or business.

Health Planning

Healthcare continues to be one of the most costly areas of retirement, but planning now can help you with these expenses in the future.

As we age, much of our cost of living depends on the amount of money we spend on healthcare each year. Working with our financial advisors, clients are able to plan for medical expenses that may become more frequent later in life, such as reoccurring office visits and prescriptions.

risk gray

Risk Management

While creating a personalized, in-depth risk management strategy is one of the most valuable things you can do for you and your family, identifying the right home, life, disability, and liability insurance policies can be a daunting process. Our advisors are here to not only identify your areas of risk, but to connect you with an agent equipped to provide you with the safeguards you need to minimize the financial impact of unforeseen, adverse life events.
