At HK Financial Services (HKFS), we partner with your CPA to provide holistic financial planning that considers your financial goals and any tax implications. We believe building a personal financial plan is the foundation for every financial decision and every financial decision has a tax implication.

In partnership with your CPA, HKFS develops a personalized and custom financial plan centered around your goals, dreams, and time horizons. Our GPS program – which stands for Guidance, Planning, Strategies – provides a full financial picture so you can make decisions knowing all financial implications, something only your CPA and financial planning consultant (FPC) can do together. Once your financial plan is established, we then explore how we can help with services such as asset management, retirement planning, risk management or insurance planning, estate planning, tax planning, and business planning.
