If you’ve been wondering how to manage your money or if you’re unsure whether your current investment professional is the right fit for you, remember that this is a relationship business. It’s important that you get to know the individual who will be helping you to determine how to manage your investments through your working years and into retirement.
Mike Hauser launched Hauser Group Wealth Management as an independent firm in St. Louis over a decade ago, tapping into the tremendous resources of LPL Financial. While the LPL brand wasn’t a household name among investors in the St. Louis area, it was and continues to be a known and respected broker dealer among investment advisors across the country, and is, in fact, the largest independent broker/dealer in the United States*. Mike knew his decision to become part of such an established and trusted firm was in his clients’ best interest. His success since then has helped to demonstrate that even lesser well-known asset management companies can provide the expertise and investment tools one might associate with higher profile brokerage firms.
Clients’ confidence in Mike’s advice is further bolstered by his many years of experience in the brokerage industry, paired with his background as a tax accountant. Before joining LPL Financial, Mike was an Investment Consultant with Prudential Securities for nearly 10 years. He began his career as a CPA for KPMG Peat Marwick in St. Louis, where he worked in the tax department.
Mike obtained a bachelor’s degree in accounting and finance, and a master’s degree in finance, both from Saint Louis University.
Mike resides in Des Peres, Mo., with his wife Julie, their two children and their dog Lily. He is active in his community, currently serving on the finance committee for the City of Des Peres and has previously served on the finance committee for St. Gerard Majella Parish.
