Professional Profile

The Henderson/Hutter Group aids current and former employees of major integrated energy companies with the management of their financial lives in order to give them the freedom to focus on what matters most to them.

We focus on retirement planning, including the integration of company-specific executive benefits and stock options into the planning process. Other areas of concentration include estate and wealth transfer planning services, investment management, and tax minimization.

As a Group with nearly 25 years of combined financial services experience, we believe that specialization and constant learning are vital components of our professional lives which enable us to consistently deliver on our commitment to clients. We place a key emphasis on easing the anxiety around market volatility by focusing on risk-reduction and wealth preservation. The Group conducts ongoing due diligence as market conditions shift in order to more appropriately position client portfolios during uncertain times. We consider ourselves partners to each of our clients, helping them achieve financial stability and independence. As such, we do everything in our power to keep clients focused on where they want to go, advise them on how to get there, and continually remind them of the importance of maintaining a disciplined approach that helps them achieve their goals.
