• Dustin Haraway

    Financial Advisor, RJFS

    Associate Member, FSG

Dustin began his wealth management career as a territory consultant with Nationwide Financial. In April of 2019, he transitioned into his current role as an advisor with Financial Strategies Group. Dustin’s passion is helping families experience financial peace through a strategic and well-organized financial plan. From the outset, he and his team will walk with you their 4-D Client Experience Process: Discovery; Design; Discussion; Deployment. Dustin will spend a considerable amount of time learning about you and your family and the goals you aspire to. He wants to understand what’s most important to you and your family then help customize a plan accordingly, one that aligns your values. Once the discovery phase has taken place, Dustin and his team strategize with clients to develop solutions that can easily adapt and evolve as the uncertainties of life unfold.

Throughout this process, they will help you address needs in a number of planning areas, including risk reduction & insurance optimization, tax planning, investment & retirement planning and college education funding. To help ensure all moving parts in your plan are working in tandem, Dustin may look to collaborate with your other professional advisors such as your accountant and attorney. Dustin primarily serves the families of a select group of aerospace & defense professionals, business owners, federal government employees and state government employees. His clients, among other things, aspire to a ‘work optional’ lifestyle, a level of financial independence to which they have the freedom to work if they desire but not because they necessarily have to.

Within his process, Dustin will utilize financial planning software called MoneyGuidePro. This tool enables him to run best-case/worst-case scenario financial projections on your plan and aggregate all of your accounts, including employer retirement accounts, in one arena.

Dustin is a former college athlete, playing 5 years of football at Georgetown College in Georgetown, KY. A 3-year starter, Dustin earned All-Conference Honors in 2015, 2016 & 2017. In 2017, he was voted to the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame All-Commonwealth Team. Dustin was also a 3-time Academic All-American. He graduated from Georgetown in 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics.

Aside from financial planning, Dustin is most passionate about the game of football. He currently serves as a coach for ‘The Field’ Football Academy, teaching middle & high school athletes fundamentals of the game. Outside of the office, Dustin enjoys a number of activities including deer hunting & weightlifting, regularly training for and competing in powerlifting competitions.

Additionally, Dustin is active within his church family, leading Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University class each fall. Passionate about making a difference in the lives of those struggling with mental health conditions, Dustin volunteers with Huntsville’s chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).

As an Investment Adviser Representative, Dustin holds a fiduciary status, legally bound to place clients’ interests ahead of his own. Dustin believes this goes beyond the ‘legal’ and more importantly represents a moral obligation, as he & his team strive to give clients the absolute best possible outcomes for their financial affairs.
