Charlotte, NC (May 18, 2015) Hiram Chip Hutchison, founder of Hutchison Group Inc., has affiliated his financial planning practice with Independent Advisor Alliance [IAA].

Hutchison Group Inc. has a simple but critical mission to help lead their clients to financial confidence. Since 2009, Hutchison Group has been developing investment strategies tailored to address its clients’specific financial needs. With over 25 years of experience in the financial services industry, Hutchison has gained many insights along the way and considers it a privilege to serve his clients and share these insights. As an independent practice, the focus is on his clients and not the needs of a large parent company. Valued team members include Debbie Elkins and Parker Bennett both LPL Registered Assistants.

Robert Russo, founder and CEO of Independent Advisor Alliance, states, IAA members are independent-minded entrepreneurs focused on creating successful practices that aim to provide lasting value for themselves, their families and their clients. They value independence for the many choices it provides, from enabling them to be selective in the type of clients with whom they work, to deciding how to brand their businesses and best nurture individual client relationships.

Russo continued to say, Chip and his team are exemplary members of the IAA community. Their service model is commendable as is their strong commitment to one another and to their clients success. We are pleased to welcome them to our firm.
