After spending the better part of 30 years managing portfolios for institutional-class investors, we have taken that knowledge directly to the individual investor.
The Hodges Family has enjoyed a long history in the money management business starting with the late Don Hodges. He started in the business back in 1960 and over the ensuing decades, honed a research process that we still use today. The tenure of our organization is quite deep, with most of our key people having multiple decades of experience. In fact, the average tenure of our portfolio managers is 30 years. We have had to navigate through countless market cycles, and our clients appreciate the rigorous research approach that we use.

We operate as a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA), and as such, must act in a fiduciary capacity with our clients. In short, this means that we must put the interests of our clients first and foremost. We accomplish this by leveraging our internal research capabilities to find the most relevant opportunities for the current market environment. Whether you are in the wealth accumulation phase of your life or in the retirement income generation mode, we have a portfolio to fit your needs.
We are not in the business of selling or promoting financial products with hidden fees or sales charges, as this invites potential conflicts of interest. We also feel that the advisory industry has become far too reliant on the extensive use of funds and other products as a means of accessing the financial markets. Product-driven investment portfolios tend to invite additional costs, are all too common, require little expertise to construct, and are devoid of any specific strategy. By not managing in this way it actually sets us apart from most other advisors.
We are independent and have no proprietary products which means we are not compelled to recommend investments for which we have an economic benefit. Our recommendations are based solely on what is most appropriate and suitable for our Clients’ specific financial situation.
A fiduciary has an obligation to act in the best interest of his/her clients in managing the clients’ assets, rendering investment advice, and trading in clients’ accounts. This obligation comes with an extremely high level of trust, and fiduciaries must not engage in any activity that would be considered a violation of this trust.
Fee-only investment advisors are not compensated by commissions from selling investment products. Instead, they are compensated by fees. The fees can be hourly, a flat fee, or a fee based on the amount of assets under management (AUM).
The account minimum is $500,000.
We charge a percentage of total assets under management. These fees are explained in detail in our Form ADV Part 2A Firm Brochure available on this web site.
