Put Your Money In the Hands That Know Best
Tim is an Independent Financial Advisor With the Tools and Expertise to Help You Build Life the Way You Like It
Financial Advisor Tim Hayes
I am an Investment Adviser Representative at Cambridge Investment Research Advisors, Inc., a Registered Investment Adviser (RIA) firm based in Fairfield, IA. I am also registered with Cambridge Investment Research, Inc., an independent broker-dealer with over 3,000 registered representatives nationwide.
Most clients pay fee-only or an hourly rate. The size and complexity of the client’s wealth management and financial and retirement planning determine that fee.
Some clients pay a commission, mainly those with smaller accounts, i.e., Roth IRAs, some public-school teachers with 403b retirement accounts, or parents or grandparents who set up a 529 college savings plan.
The first introductory and fact-finding appointment can be in-person or by phone. The next meeting where I provide my recommendations should be in-person.
Subsequent meetings during which we monitor your progress and investments can be done in-person or by phone, email, Zoom, or Skype – or, more likely, a combination of these meeting types.
Life isn’t all about money, but it is an important tool for building the life you want. Like with any tool, the best results are achieved when skilled, experienced hands are in control. I have studied the financial markets for over 30 years, and as the new financial ‘normal’ is continually redefined, I am always striving to learn more about it and adapt my knowledge to it.
The result: I can help you make smart investing decisions for every stage of your life, under all market conditions.
Every smart investment decision starts with listening to my clients and asking them the right questions, including:
- What do you want out of life?
- What are you working for?
- What are your short-term and long-term financial goals?

Customized Investment Ideas and Portfolio Review Services for Changing Financial Needs and Goals
Over the years, you’ll likely change jobs a few times. Your goals and risk tolerance will change too.
My investment ideas are only as good as their ability to keep up with you, so it all starts with getting to know you and your current investing situation. You may need your portfolio fine-tuned, or perhaps major changes are in order. Whatever the case, I’ll recommend a customized portfolio that addresses your needs and goals. And as your financial advisor, I’ll commit to reviewing your portfolio at least once a year.
Whether you’re changing jobs, shifting gears into retirement, or already participating in an investment plan at work (401(k), 403(b), etc.), you owe it to yourself and your family to make sure you’re doing the right things at the right time.
