securities market in the early part of 2001 as clients wanted more rapid returns and wanted to be more aggressive with their money. Then, everything changed on September 11, 2001 when the United States was attacked on Sept. 11, 2001. When clients called to ask if their money was protected, the team at Hoppes and Associates felt confident about giving them an affirmative answer…YES. Countless numbers of people lost over half if not all of their savings due to the financial backlash of 9/11.
Hoppes & Associates’ clients aren’t directly tied to market downturns making it an easy decision to stay away from the securities market. Today Hoppes & Associates continue to help folks in Texas reach their retirement goals with a predictable, conservative approach, with no consulting or management fees.
