Hall Financial Advisors, LLC seeks to build life-long investment relationships on a foundation of trust and client satisfaction with exceptional service. We are dedicated to helping you create the life and legacy you desire by applying our investment experience to your unique goals.
If you are looking for investments with the potential to generate income, Hall Financial Advisors, LLC offers a disciplined strategy. We specialize in building portfolios of U.S. Treasury, government agency, zero-coupon and corporate bonds of staggered maturities, as well as tax-efficient municipal bonds and FDIC-insured certificates of deposit.
The FDIC standard maximum deposit insurance amount per depositor per insured depository institution for each account ownership category is $250,000.
Yields and market value will fluctuate so that your investment, if sold prior to maturity, may be worth more or less than its original cost. Bond prices fluctuate inversely to changes in interest rates. Therefore, a general rise in interest rates can result in the decline of the value of your investment.
Estate Planning Strategies
Through our affiliates, Hall Financial Advisors, LLC works with families to find the most appropriate estate-planning strategies for their situation, including the use of lifetime gifts and trusts to potentially reduce estate-tax liability. We understand the sensitive nature of this topic, and can assist in reviewing or helping you develop a plan that simplifies the transfer of your estate to family members. In an effort to ensure comprehensive and seamless execution of your investment strategy and future legacy, we consult with your other professional advisors, including attorneys, insurance specialists and CPAs, as needed. By encouraging all of your advisors to work together as a team, we are best able to identify opportunities and avoid strategic mistakes. The steps you take today to review your will and estate documents with your professional advisors could protect your heirs from substantial delays, fees and taxes.
Through our professional relationships, Hall Financial Advisors, LLC can offer individuals who seek to establish a trust an alternative to appointing themselves, friends or family members as trustees, and can therefore address trust needs with a high degree of impartiality. Additionally, if you choose to invest trust assets through us, you may benefit from reduced trust management and administration fees. We can assist you with a broad range of cost-effective trust strategies, including living, testamentary, life insurance and charitable trusts.
