H. Stephen "Steve" Bailey, Registered Financial Consultant, honors the same vow he made over 30 years ago, "I will suggest the same strategies and products to my clients that I would select for myself'. Steve started HB Financial almost 30 years ago after already having a life insurance career. Many got to hear and "know" Steve through a radio show he had co-hosted weekly on a local station for over 4 years. He has written a regular column entitled "Money Matters" in Senior Directions" for several years and is the author of "Dollar$ense, A Book for Matured Adults".

Steve was re-elected by his professional peers to serve on the board of the IARFC, currently serving as the Chairman of the Board of the International Association of Registered Financial Consultants.

He is also the 2010 recipient of the prestigious Loren Dunton Memorial Award presented to people who have made significant contributions to the financial services profession and to the public. The award is presented annually in honor of Loren Dunton, the founder of the financial planning profession, who organized financial professionals in the late sixties. Candidates must have demonstrated effectiveness in carrying the message of responsible financial stewardship to the public and must hold a professional designation, have high professional and ethical standards. Their career must be in support of Loren's mission, "to help people do a better job of spending, saving, investing, insuring and planning for the future, in order to achieve financial independence."

Steve continues the community and civic involvement he began in his early school years. His civic involvement includes serving as President of the Mecklenburg Jaycees, Charlotte Independence Lions Club, Charlotte Kiwanis Club and Charlotte Shrine Club.

Steve is an active church member at First Christian Church in Charlotte, NC. He has been married to his wife, Bobbi, for 50 years. When he is not working with his clients you will find them traveling, on a golf course or spending time with their grandson.
