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
