About Hood Financial

You’re busy. We get it. At Hood Financial, we know that time is your most precious commodity- not money. With so many people and things competing for your time and attention, it’s no wonder that family, faith, fitness, friends, and fun often takes precedence over planning, pie charts, and portfolios. We also understand that not all advisers and firms are created equal. Knowing who to trust can be difficult, but not impossible. Do you go with a big-name national firm or a smaller local group? There are many other questions you must consider and yes, it does take a little bit of time, effort, and doing your homework. So, why choose to work with Hood Financial over anyone else?

What We Do

Retirement planning is similar to planning for a mountain expedition. You reach the “summit” when you leave work, and the trip down the mountain is fraught with just as much difficulty and danger (if not more) as on the way up. Our job is to make sure you are properly trained and equipped—and that you know what to expect at every stage.
