We are an independent fiduciary, required to act in the best interest of our clients. We carefully
blend financial concepts and analytical evaluations of various options to educate, develop an
action plan and monitor results to help clients pursue their financial goals.
Based on a CPA firm background and 30+ years of making investment and financial planning recommendations I specialized in a "participate yet protect" philosophy.
I monitor many investment managers - not just a favored few - to choose our key recommendations based on a clients objectives and risk tolerance. One of the many factors we monitor is a managers long-term risk vs. reward history. This is calculated in modern portfolio terms of Beta (risk relative to a baseline) vs. Alpha (outperformance vs. risk taken). These are just two of many factors we evaluate when making investment recommendations.
I educate clients on the pros and cons of various investment alternatives and actively monitor results. I update you on changing market conditions and suggest adjustments as the investment outlook changes. Portfolios are not static but should be dynamically changing with market conditions.
As a financial advisor, I give you the facts as an independent Registered Investment Advisor to help you make important investment decisions based on my analytical CPA firm background, not impressive salesmanship.

Dave Hutchison was in the tax department of Touche Ross, CPAs (before their merger with Deloitte) and then a tax supervisor at McGladrey Hendrickson & Co., CPAs before founding his own tax accounting firm in 1975. Before selling the practice in 1989, he found a huge need for objective, independent financial planning, and advice on investments and insurance alternatives, based on side-by-side analytical comparisons rather than sales hype. For the last 30+ years, Dave has specialized in helping clients save, accumulate, invest and help protect their assets.
Dave has been quoted in BARRONS, among other publications, has appeared on radio and television and conducted seminars for CPAs and the public back in the 1980s including warnings about risky real estate tax shelters, as well as a variety of financial planning and investment topics.
Dave was the founder of Hutchison Financial Corporation (HFC), a small broker-dealer which had about 100 representatives and employees in five states. While headquartered in Minneapolis HFC also had a Phoenix office with about 30 representatives.
Dave moved from the Minneapolis area (Richfield, Edina and St. Louis Park) to Phoenix in 1988. Dave prefers working directly with individual clients rather than all the headaches of owning a broker-dealer. Therefore, he sold HFC and has since devoted himself to researching investment opportunities and working directly with clients.
Since 1983, Dave has been a FINRA Registered Principal and Office of Supervisory Jurisdiction (OSJ).
