You work hard for your money; HFP works hard to protect and increase your net worth.

At Hamilton Financial Planning, we understand the complexities of building an adaptable financial management and investment plan that offers the needed flexibility for modification and diversification as your needs change. Life and obligations are not static, nor are investment market trends and tax requirements. In order for you to reach your financial goals, your portfolio must be able to benefit from change while being able to circumvent any negative impact on your financial security.

We stay ahead of the trends to ensure your investments continue to grow and remain secure. At HFP we apply proven expertise to every aspect of our clients’ finances – from accumulation and growth to preservation and distribution.

Why Hamilton Financial Planning?

We’re a fee-only fiduciary financial planning, investment, and wealth management firm headquartered in Austin, TX with satellite offices in Houston, TX and Charleston, SC.


Because your financial prosperity and security come first. Always. HFP is entirely fee-based. This means there are no hidden fees, no up-sells, zero commissions. Our wealth building and management process is direct, transparent, and legally bound by fiduciary duty to you. Our client.


Working together, we approach your financial planning based on what matters to you; your obligations, wishes, dreams, and goals including sustainable investing. We then design a customized and flexible investment and wealth management plan which is adaptable to your changing needs, predicated on one primary goal. To sustainably increase your net worth in a diversified and favorable tax strategy manner.
