Specialists at HMC Partners, design retirement plans for clients and use them as blueprints for managing their clients’ wealth on a fee only basis. Clients’ accounts are actively managed and tailor made to work toward their distinct goals, dreams, and needs. HMC Partners’ goal is to help keep your retirement “On Target!”

HMC Partners is an independent, asset based fee firm whose partners have over 50 years of combined investment and financial planning experience. What does this mean to you? It means HMC Partners is totally unbiased when designing your investment portfolio because they are paid a fee to manage your investments versus being paid commissions. Whether you own mutual funds, stocks, bonds or other investment vehicles, HMC Partners is paid the same fee to manage your account. This means you never have to question the motivation of the investments they are suggesting. HMC Partners is simply trying to get the best rate of return possible in your portfolio while taking the appropriate amount of risk.

Very rarely is every situation the same. For that reason, a variety of planning platforms with different investment strategies for various risk levels are offered. Customized strategies include:

  • Mutual Funds
  • Stocks
  • Bonds
  • Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)
  • Alternative Investments

These investments are designed for IRAs, Rollover IRAs, Roth IRAs, Retirement Plans, Trusts, and individual accounts.
