Chris Hall and his business partner, Brett Bronski are owners of Hall Financial Advisors, LLC. Chris’ career began at the age of 22 fresh out of college. Starting with zero client relationships and assets under management and beginning with door-to-door introductions in 1999, he became an investment advisor with Edward Jones building his office in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Brett began his career as an investment advisor in 2000, establishing a successful Edward Jones office in Lexington, Kentucky with the same door-to door approach. Brett moved back to the Mid-Ohio Valley in 2003 to be with his family.
In December of 2004, Chris outgrew and left his Edward Jone practice where he managed $100 million in client assets to join Wachovia Securities Financial Network. Brett joined the firm in December 2004 during this transition. Since forming Hall Financial Advisors, LLC as part of the Wachovia Securities Financial Network in December of 2004, the business has grown to just north of $550 million in client trusted assets with two offices located in Parkersburg, West Virginia and Marietta, Ohio. Wachovia Securities was purchased in the fall of 2008 by Wells Fargo Advisors.
Chris Hall, Managing Principal, and Brett Bronski, Senior Financial Advisor, are proud to lead a team of fifteen. The advisory team offers a true team approach with seven securities-registered advisors that work collectively to manage client assets. The majority of their clients entrust the advisory team to make decisions on a discretionary basis within the guidelines and objectives of the client and within the Wells Fargo Advisors parameters widely accepted across the industry. The seven advisors all subscribe to various sources of research and feel that the more eyes and ears the better when it comes to making fundamental investment decisions. The other nine team members are administrative and operational, two of which are fully securities-registered as well.
