About HBW Advisory Services

HBW Advisory Services

HBW has been a family-owned business since its founding in 1991. The financial world has changed a lot since then. But since our first day we have tried to treat every client as part of the family. That has not changed. HBW's most basic belief and guiding principle is in providing our advisors and clients the tools they need to stay the course, to stick to their financial plans, to seek control of the factors that form the basis of all other investment success: saving, asset protection through insurance, and tax planning. We also believe our clients relationship with their advisor is among their most important assets when times are challenging. Quite simply, we believe advice from most independent financial advisors will be better than advice from anywhere else. Our view is that products are products. Real solutions are based on values and goals, not hypothetical investment returns, fear-based sales tactics or big company guarantees crippled by the fine print. Why deal with some firm's inherent conflict of interest if you do not have to? We are committed to people and families: committed to helping our clients fulfill hopes, accomplish goals, and realize dreams. HBW Advisory Services LLC, is a Registered Investment Advisory Services Company entrusted with over $1 billion in client assets under management.

My reason for becoming an independent Financial Advisor is deeply personal. I have a passion to be of service to those who need our help and offer them the highest level of care and comprehensive services. At Homestead Wealth Management, we refuse to treat people like numbers; kindness and respect are the foundation of all our client relationships. Over the years I repeatedly saw many friends and family struggling to find the help they needed to map out their financial future. I am confident that with my understanding of personal finance, coupled with my training as a financial professional, I can help people better prepare for the future. After years in the business, I have developed a reputation for educating individuals in an easy-to-understand manner so they can grasp personal finance and use those concepts to pursue their financial objectives. I feel a commitment to our community and take a holistic approach to serving clients. I currently hold the Chartered Financial Consultant® (ChFC®) designation, which was obtained and taught by The American College of Financial Services. Also, I hold the Certified Investment Management Analyst® (or CIMA®) designation, administered by Investment Management Consultants Association®, and taught by Yale School of Management. As a comprehensive Financial Advisor, I can help in the following areas: - General principles of financial strategies (for example, personal financial statements, net worth statements)
- Insurance planning and risk management
- Investment planning
- Income tax planning strategies
- Retirement planning
- Estate planning strategies Homestead Wealth Management and LPL Financial do not provide legal advice or tax services. Please consult your legal advisor or tax advisor regarding your specific situation. Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal.

About Pasadena Private Wealth

Pasadena Private Wealth

Pasadena Private Wealth provides a variety of standalone financial planning and consulting services to clients for the management of financial resources based upon an analysis of current situation, goals, and objectives. Financial planning services will typically involve preparing a financial plan or rendering a financial consultation for clients based on the client's financial goals and objectives. This planning or consulting may encompass Investment Planning, Retirement Planning, Estate Planning, Charitable Planning, Education Planning, Corporate and Personal Tax Planning, Cost Segregation Study, Corporate Structure, Real Estate Analysis, Mortgage/Debt Analysis, Insurance Analysis, Lines of Credit Evaluation, or Business and Personal Financial Planning. Written financial plans or financial consultations rendered to clients usually include general recommendations for a course of activity or specific actions to be taken by the clients. Implementation of the recommendations will be at the discretion of the client. Our firm provides clients with a summary of their financial situation, and observations for financial planning engagements. Financial consultations are not typically accompanied by a written summary of observations and recommendations, as the process is less formal than the planning service. We're a different kind of investment advisory firm. That's because we offer much more than investment management: we are a true one-stop shop for personal and business financial advice, delivered seamlessly through one voice. With over 110 years of combined financial services experience, our bench is deep and our skills range from banking and real estate to portfolio management and corporate retirement plan design. This enables us to be highly responsive and propose solutions that take into account your entire financial picture, however complex and intermingled your various assets and income streams are. Because we have witnessed firsthand the inefficiencies of a compartmentalized approach, PPW has purposely tried to eliminate the service layers and the product barriers that are so often present in larger institutions. Our versatile advisers are trained and equipped to answer a variety of financial questions without always needing to consult a product specialist from another division. This allows us to be product-agnostic, and makes our professional staff more responsive and more accountable to our clients on all fronts. Our core belief is that by having all of these skills and services under one roof, we can be better stewards of your family's wealth.

Michael was born in Santa Monica and raised outside Philadelphia. At Georgetown, he double-majored in finance and small business management. Somehow, he found time to play varsity baseball, too.

Let me introduce myself. I am Mike Lynch, the founder of Lynch Financial Advisors. I started advising clients in 2000 back in New Jersey after my wife's and my financial advisor urged me to work with him. When we moved back to California in 2002, I started my own practice. What is important to me? Like most people, my wife, kids, my family, friends, and my dog. When I set my goals, these are the things that are uppermost in my mind. And without doing my own planning, I cannot reach the goals that give my life balance and happiness. Like many, I put in fair portion of hours at work. Fortunately for me I LOVE going in and helping my clients meet their goals and put together solutions that makes their lives better. As you can see through our website, this practice is centered around knowing what is important to YOU. It is NOT some marketing line by some national firm. We truly love what we do and are passionate about our clients.

Matthew V. Pixa is the President and founder of My Portfolio Guide, LLC. Matt Pixa grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and at a very young age learned from a World War II Veteran father who grew up in the Great Depression that money and resources are to be managed prudently. Matt's curiosity and passion for investing was further sparked during the stock market crash of 1987. Being a new investor without any guidance and coupled with the dramatic events of that period, an interest and passion for becoming a student of the markets was born. Matt studied Economics and earned a Bachelor's degree while also competing as a student-athlete for California State University Long Beach. After advancing his career for 12 years he decided to return to graduate school and further his business and finance education by earning an MBA from the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. Matt Pixa lives in Seal Beach, CA with his wife Cecilia, daughter Isabel, and son Lance. As a family the Pixas are involved in several Orange County charities, through their church at Saint Joseph, and with several non-profits such as Care for the Poor and Taller San Jose. Matt enjoys coaching youth sports for his children's teams and also competes in Ironman triathlons as a way to stay fit, disciplined, and blow off any left over energy.
