Austin Hon, CFP® Momentum Private Wealth Management
About Austin Hon, CFP®
I am the CEO and Founder of Momentum Private Wealth Management. Founded in 2019, Momentum Private Wealth is an Austin Texas based, independent fee-only wealth management firm. I have over 15 years experience working in the financial investment and planning industry.
I first began my career in finance by joining one of the biggest mutual fund companies in the world in a customer service role, and as they say, it was all downhill from there. I quickly moved into more seasoned roles, and with a location change to the San Francisco Bay Area, I moved into the Private Wealth Management side of the business. It was there I found my true love for helping individuals with their wealth management and financial planning needs.
Over the next 10 years I had the opportunity to work for two smaller RIA firms where I eventually decided to start my own firm here in the heart of Austin, Texas. The core focus of Momentum Private Wealth Management is to provide transparent and focused investment and financial planning services to individuals and families who are looking to demystify the world of finance.
I graduated from the University of California Santa Cruz in 2004 and I obtained the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation in August of 2011.

Sometimes it feels like the chaos is too much. Hands down, 2020 has been the worst year I can recollect. I remember fondly how we all had great plans for 2020. On New Years Day I was crawling out of an ice cold swimming pool after taking a newly created tradition polar plunge. With a b [...]
