What makes HFG unique?
As the owner and President of the HFG, I work one on one with all our clients. We take the time to get to know you and your family. Investing can be nerve-wracking, we place a high priority on you feeling at ease with any decisions we come to. If you don’t feel good about what we are doing, we want to slow down until we come to a consensus on a path that feels right to you.
We focus our practice on the Middle Class. You don’t need to be rich to work with us. We specialize in helping middle-class Western New Yorkers plan and execute successful Retirements. This is our niche. We work best with people who worked hard, played by the rules and are now ready to begin the next big chapter in their lives.
We take the mystery out of Financial Planning: When you work with the Hafner Financial Group, we do your Financial Planning together. We do this by using our Financial Possibilities Wizard. The beauty of using this approach is that it allows you to dream big and try on various Retirement ideas, aspirations, and scenarios such as cruises, vacations, and purchases. In using this approach, you are able to instantly see how these decisions affect the bottom line of your Retirement. And you see all this projected onto a 70-inch TV screen in living color.
We simplify your Retirement Planning: Before you retired you were used to getting a paycheck on a regular schedule and in Retirement we believe it is important that this continues. That is why when you work with Hafner Financial Group, we will make sure that you receive one electronic transfer deposited to your bank on the same day every month.
Our Retirement Plans are flexible so that when life happens and you need to make changes, we have the ability to change course and allow you to do what needs to be done.
