You have a hidden gem hidden in Desoto Manner by the name of Chip Hollingsworth. Have you ever considered getting him to speak to the NEO? I only wish someone had told me about things he has to offer to employees when I was much younger, both in age and in federal career. Buying back military time is an example. If only I had understood how important this would be to me at retirement, I could have started payroll deductions for next to nothing and have it taken care of painlessly. Thrift Savings is another example, I never really understood nor cared to be honest. I just thought it was a way to pay less taxes, handled correctly, it can provide much more security for you and your family, if you are aware of the things to do with it. I truly believe Chip can help the employees much better than any CPAC retirement advisor can or could. Thanks for providing his services to us.

Chip Hollingsworth is a dynamic individual with a desire for future finical freedom for families. Chip has the intelligence to understand financial growth in the market , and the unbelievable ability to explain it in layman terms to the average person. His knowledge of the market for future growth and money movement in my families monthly income has been amazing. The future retirement plan that has been set up for us has given my wife the opportunity to start a retirement within her own business as a cosmetologist. Chips desire for my family was to allow us to retire at the age of 57 without working and still go on with our normal daily life style. I’m a federal fire fighter and it’s mandatory we have to retire at the age of 57. Chips research and development of our finances will give my family that opportunity. I personally would like to thank Chip and his wife for all that they have accomplished for my Family. Chip has not only been a great financial advisor but friend that keeps in touch on a weekly basis. His friendship could be more desirable than his intelligence in the money market. Thanks again Chip for a job well done!

Chip is different than any other financial planner I have ever met! We hit it off right away. We have things in common (both like old cars), and I consider him a friend. He gets with you on a personal basis, gives you all the ins and outs, and gives good advice and his financial products are the best: I haven’t found anything better. His greatest strength is his honesty; he’s a Christian man, and I have already recommended him to several friends. He helped solidify my financial future. I wish I’d known he was at the Depot sooner. Chip is definitely the way to go, if you need help with retirement planning.

Over the past few years, I have spoken to numerous investment advisors/financial planners (FP) and have made the choice not to do business with most of them. When I heard a FP was hosting a question/answer session at my place of employment, I assumed this experience would mimic the rest. However, I could not have been more wrong. Chip Hollingsworth provided more information about my government retirement in a few minutes than I had received in years. After meeting with Chip we explored other investment opportunities. Chip was very knowledgeable, yet allowed me to find my comfort zone and pursue that type of investment. Chip is one of the most patient “salesman” I have ever met. This process took over nine months and ended with a satisfied customer. Chip wanted to ensure I was satisfied with the choices we made. Most FPs would have given up long before, again speaking to Chip’s patience, ability to listen, and ability to tailor a plan that is “right” for the individual investor. I would highly recommend Chip and his company to anyone that would like to secure their retirement and build a better future for themselves and their family. Through this process, I not only met a great financial planner, I met a good friend.

Chip Hollingsworth is personable, knowledgeable and accessible. You can absolutely pick his brain; he is so well informed. He has helped me plan for my retirement the right way; the right thing at the right time. He needs to clone himself.

Chip has been there for me and my family for approximately six years. I first heard about Chip through other friends and co-workers. The first time we met, I felt like I had known him my entire life. He made me comfortable and at ease. I had previously gone through a local bank for financial advice, but saw real quick that I had a more personal relationship with Chip. He helped me put together a financial plan which will provide income and more importantly security for my future. Chip always makes time for me, even if he is busy. If he doesn’t know the answer to a question, he will find out and get back with me. Chip is honest and dependable. I would not hesitate to recommend Chip for all your financial needs.

I have struggled many years trying to invest with other investment companies and none of them would take time to explain, “This is what you need to do to get to where you want to be”. Chip is that someone who you wished you had talked to first! He is easy going, straight forward, hard working and no-nonsense. Chip is an individual who will listen to your goals and understands our ideas with respect and is compassionate in achieving your goals WITH you. A professional person in the financial planning aspect as well and very knowledgeable about the world of investing; one who keeps up with world events – the movers and shakers. He is up-to-date with this fast paced ever changing world, especially in the last few years where the roles have changed dramatically for us all forever more. The ones that can either make you or break you. Chip is a man who continues to serve his country; as a soldier in Vietnam and now serving those as a professional financial planner. He is that someone who takes the complexity out of investing, making money fun and simple. I believe in Chip and what he does.
