Our Commitment to Clients
Clients who are new to Hunter Associates are often surprised by the level of detail in our introductory and discovery process. Our commitment to each client begins at the first meeting, in which our advisors ask questions, listen, learn and gain an understanding of the client’s needs and goals. As we learn, we design and recommend individualized solutions to help our clients grow, preserve and distribute wealth over a lifetime – and in many cases beyond.
Clients have the freedom to determine how they wish to affiliate with us. We offer both brokerage and investment advisory services.
We understand that choosing a financial advisor is a complex decision; we encourage clients to explore which partnership best fits their financial strategy.
Our philosophy demands that we know our clients well in order to contribute to their financial well-being. We recognize that each client is unique; therefore, each financial strategy is individually designed.
Working closely with our clients, we agree on a division of assets into four risk-based categories of investments. We integrate our thorough understanding of each client’s needs with our process-driven portfolio management.
Hunter Associates was built on a collaborative approach to individual account management. We continue to believe this unique approach combines the best elements of both brokerage and advisory firms, allowing us to define, implement and achieve the ultimate investment objectives for each of our clients.
Hunter Associates is dedicated to being an active member our local communities.
Our headquarters, in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh, has been located in the historic Koppers Building since 1992. We have seen the city change, grow and advance over time; we celebrate the history and hard work of those who have come before us. We are proud of our longevity in the downtown area and actively look for opportunities to support our city.
Our Salem branch office is nestled in the small town of Salem, Ohio. In 2013, Hunter Associates completed renovations of an old, empty convenience store into our Salem branch’s new permanent location. We are honored to breathe new life into the unused building and contribute to the community an attractive office space complete with state-of-the art technology.
Our Mission Statement
Our primary goal is to help our clients define and achieve their financial objectives. To do this, we establish an investment plan, adopt an investment policy, including an appropriate asset allocation and select suitable securities to reach these goals. Our further goal is to provide our associates with growth opportunities, a rewarding experience and a pleasant environment. Our success, both financial and otherwise, will be a by-product of achieving these goals.
