Keith graduated from Trenton State College with a BS in Finance. After graduation, Keith joined American Express Financial Advisors in Voorhees, NJ. He then joined MassMutual Financial Group in Bridgewater, NJ. In the fall of 2000, Keith decided he could serve his clients in a better way and created Hawk Financial Group. As an independent financial advisor, Keith has conducted numerous complimentary no-cost informational seminars throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The seminars covered social security, medicare, and retirement income planning. As an investment adviser representative, Keith believes the financial relationship should always center around the client. That is why he adheres to the fiduciary standard of care for his clients. Keith holds a Series 65 license and keeps his clients' best interests first. He also adheres to a policy of no bias or conflict of interest.

About Hawk Financial Group

As a local independent financial advisor in Northampton County, Easton, PA, Keith Hawk has a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of his clients. He mainly works with seniors ages 55- 75 in Northampton County, Lehigh County, Bucks County, and Monroe County PA, as well as Warren County and Hunterdon County in NJ. His clients' retirement years are secured by addressing and fixing overlooked financial and non-financial "snags" before they happen. Three of these overlooked "snags" include: 1) A program to make sure a wife doesn't lose 1/2 their Social Security income when their husband passes away. 2) A program to cover two years worth of long-term care costs without paying a cent in annual premiums. 3) Making sure that your Power of Attorney document has the correct language to work with Social Security, Medicare, IRS, Veterans Administration, and your banks and brokerages. "As a fee based investment adviser, I have a fiduciary duty to put my client's best interest first. I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and to show you how I do things differently."

My passion for finance comes from a family heritage of teaching and caring for others. Finance is a complex area of life, yet in most states, it is not required in schools. As a financial planner, I have the ability to make a significant impact in the lives of the individuals, couples and families I serve. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, my husband Jim and my two sons, Christian and Dylan. We love visiting places as a family, and our kids' energy ensures we stay active.

Our team specializes in retirement planning and professional portfolio management. Check our website at www.kingstonretirementgroup.com to get an idea of our background in greater details.

About Janney Montgomery Scott LLC

How I Work With Clients Long-term focus and discipline start with a sound investment strategy. The first meeting is a complimentary consultation. I like to get acquainted with you and your family to discuss your current financial condition and determine your invetment objectives. Once we begin a business relationship, we proceed to gather all of your financial data, which includes current investments, income, assets, insurances and any debts or loans. Upon determining your goals and objectives, we then analyze the information and agree upon a financial plan. Once an investment plan is agreed upon, our team of specialists will work with your own independent tax and legal advisors. Our goal is to add value through a comprehensive planning approach. Regular portfolio reviews will then be scheduled to monitor your investments and rebalance as necessary. We will also discuss any life changes that may have occurred and the opportunities and challenges that they may present. This is what all present and future clients can expect. I welcome the opportunity to work with you as your investment partner.

About Financial Freedom LLC

Financial Freedom provides Fee-Only Wealth Management Services which includes comprehensive financial planning and investment management services. OUR PRIMARY OBJECTIVE IS TO HELP OUR CLIENTS ACHIEVE THEIR LIFE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES. Unlike many planners, we are Fee-Only Financial Planners. Fee-only planners are compensated solely on the basis of fees paid by their clients and do not accept any commissions or compensation from any other sources. This form of compensation should provide you with a high-level of confidence that you are receiving objective recommendations. Additionally, when working with clients on an on-going basis, we do so utilizing a flat retainer arrangement versus any percentage of assets under management formula. Each year we provide our clients with a Wealth Management Services performance evaluation review. We think that it is important that each client is able to evaluate the overall value that our retainer relationship adds to the achievement of their life goals and objectives. Our business strategy is to maintain a small firm focused on developing in-depth personal relationships with a small number of client families versus a cursory relationship with hundreds of clients. The Osgoods are the firm; they do the analysis and investing; they meet with you wherever you live; you won't be turned over to someone else once you become a client. We are seeking prospective new clients with a minimum of $1 million of investable assets. Check out our website at www.finfree.com for more information. Call us at 610-296-9500 for an initial no-obligation consultation.
