Hi there, my name is Hilton O'Neal! I am a financial advisor with Edward Jones serving the Crystal Coast area.

I have personally seen time and time again where inappropriate financial advice and financial products can be destructive and deceiving. This led me to pursue my role as a financial advisor, where I have the ability to make a serious, lasting and positive impact on the lives of those around me that need financial guidance.

Growing up in Washington, NC, eastern NC is my home and is the perfect place for me to pursue my interests, which include being out on the water, fishing, surfing and volunteering in the community.

I attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and graduated magna cum laude, studying areas of business, finance and communication.

I take the initiative to understand my clients and their unique situations; working together, we build personalized investment strategies and partner together for the long-term to help make sure we stay on track and accomplish other goals as they arise.

If you have recently had a major life event (a marriage or divorce, changed jobs, sold a home, moved to the area or had a loved one passed away) and are in need of partnering with someone locally and face to face, we may be able to provide value to you and those you care about.

My local branch team is currently accepting new clients. Reach out and let's connect today!
