Hayes & Associates

A Registered Investment Advisor with the State of California, Hayes & Associates was founded in 1974 in San Jose, California. Initially focusing on accounting, tax planning and preparation, founder Charles Hayes soon discovered many clients also sought investment advice. Having spent many hours each year researching his personal investments, extending his expertise to clients' accounts was a natural progression.

Several business trips brought Charles to San Diego over the years, leading him to fall in love with the city and move south in 1984. Shortly thereafter, he relocated his investment and accounting practice - and home - to the beautiful island of Coronado.

Today, our clients hail from Coronado, San Diego, across the United States and internationally. We appreciate developing long-term, lasting relationships with the families and companies with which we do business.

Our core team has been working together for over ten years to bring you the excellent level of service that you expect, and the integrity and objectivity you need from your fiduciary advisor.

Our tax preparation and planning approaches ensure that you will pay the least taxes allowable by law, while our fee-only investment management guarantees that our investment objectives are aligned with yours.

Please contact us today to discuss the possibilities of how we can serve you.
