Nashville Firm Included for First Time Among America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies and Maintains Position on Financial Times Top Registered Investment Advisers List

Franklin, Tenn. (Aug. 20, 2020) – HawsGoodwin Wealth, a Nashville area financial planning and investment management firm, was named to the annual Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000. The 2020 honorees have been very competitive within their markets, and the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior years’ lists.


“We are thrilled to be included on this prestigious list,” said CEO Art Haws, CPWA® CFP®. “Our primary focus has always been on providing the best possible service to the clients who depend on us. The growth for which we’ve been recognized is extremely gratifying as it has primarily come through referrals from trusting, satisfied clients and other business professionals in Tennessee.”


“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” said Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”


The 2020 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2016 and 2019. To qualify, companies had to meet the following requirements:


  • Must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2016
  • S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent as of December 31, 2019 (not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies) as of December 31, 2019
  • Have minimum revenue of $100,000 in 2016 and $2 million in 2019

HawsGoodwin was also named to the Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers for the second consecutive year. This list recognizes top independent RIA firms from across the United States.


The seventh annual FT 300 list is produced independently by Ignites Research, a division of Money-Media, Inc., on behalf of Financial Advisor. RIA firms that met a minimum set of criteria were eligible to apply for consideration. Applicants were then graded on six factors: assets under management (AUM), AUM growth rate, years in existence, advanced industry credentials of the firm’s advisers, online accessibility and compliance records. No fees or other considerations were required of those RIAs that applied for the FT 300.
