William Hardaway, CPA, WRFA

Beneath the Surface:

“While working my way through college my dad suggested I open a Roth IRA. Seeing the value in his suggestion I saved enough money to open an account, but when asked how to invest the money I realized I didn’t know the first thing about investing. I was so taken with it that when I finished my degree in small business management I decided to get a degree in accounting too. At the time I thought that understanding financial statements would be the key to investing. I read books, magazines, blogs, and anything I could get my hands on. Almost all of it pointed me in the direction of diversified, low cost, and long term investing, the strategy we use at WRFA. After graduating with a B.B.A in Accounting from Francis Marion University, I began a career in tax. As my career progressed, my niche became high net worth individuals. In 2015, I completed the CFP® exam and I now split my time between tax, wealth management, and financial planning. At WRFA I enjoy the privilege of taking a comprehensive approach to helping others plan for and reach their financial goals.”
