Working here provides me with an outlet to help people manage evolving financial risks with success. That is very satisfying. Running a very close second place to this is that HH consists of my teammates, and I get to collaborate and thrive side-by-side with them day after day, and year after year. Lastly, this is my outlet to build a professional legacy that is significant and sustainable beyond my tenure here.
Tim fosters great relationships with his clients; his objective is to assist them in all facets of their financial lives. Working with the Halbert Hargrove team, he builds and implements a disciplined, ongoing process that ensures that all the complexities inherent to his clients’ wealth are addressed. Tim has been with HH, based in our Long Beach office, since 1994. His longevity with the firm, he says, “gives me the opportunity to be a leader and play a part in developing the next generation. That’s very rewarding to me.”
