Understanding Today's Financial Environment
Southern Living called Charleston, South Carolina, the South’s best city—for the 2nd year in a row in 20181 . We at Hines Wealth Management, LLC, understand that.
The deeply held traditional values and that homespun sense of hospitality of South Carolina’s oldest and largest city serve to inspire us.
Founded in 1670 as a port city, Charleston captures the essence of small-town America with its genteel charm and passion for that old-fashioned elegance of the South. With a population topping 130,000, it also retains the cosmopolitan energy of urban life.
With Charleston’s rich cultural history as our guide, we at Hines Wealth Management make loyalty and commitment to our clients our sole directive. We form relationships with one, singularly focused objective: We’re in this together for the long haul. Although we proudly call Charleston home, our client base extends throughout the country.
We understand that making your way through the maze of a complex and sometimes tangled financial sector can feel overwhelming. You’re looking for clarity, direction, and wisdom in managing your financial concerns. At Hines Wealth Management, we know how to help you manage your money, your investments, your retirement, and your financial future.
CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals must meet the highest requirements in the industry in terms of ethics, education, experience and exam. The new CFP® (with plaque design) mark reflects that rigor. Bold and confident yet warm and reassuring, our new mark visually represents CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals as the gold standard among financial advisors.
