John Darden collage

I received my Bachelor of Business Administration, Majoring in Business Economics from Mississippi State University in May 2012. Along with graduating Cum Laude, I played 4 years on the Bulldogs Men's Golf Team. After college I played two years on the Adams Pro Golf Tour traveling Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma playing events. I began his career as a Financial Advisor with Wells Fargo Advisors in April of 2015 joining Andy Evans and Candy Hawkins to form the Evans, Hawkins, Darden Investment Group. In 2019, we transitioned to the Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network, and are now part of Astra Wealth Management Group.

We work with a select group of individuals, families, businesses, and philanthropic organizations to help build, manage, preserve and transition their wealth. We take a comprehensive approach to wealth management. Wealth consists of Investments, Liability Management, Risk Management (though Insurance and other Asset Protection Strategies), and Estate Planning Strategies.

Our process begins by listening to our clients. We listen and understand their current situation, their past experiences and their goals and objectives for the future. With this information clients share with us we go to work. We study, analyze, model and develop strategies designed to help them meet their goals and objectives. With our client's permission we implement our recommendations in an independent, objective, unbiased and cost-effective manner. Then we can review and evaluate the progress of the client's plans and we'll make adjustments when there are material changes in the markets, changes in tax laws by coordinating with our clients' tax professionals, or changes in the lives of our clients.

We bring our education, advanced training and a commitment to ongoing professional development. We bring years of experience practicing wealth management and we do so with judgment rendered with care, skill and caution. We're part of Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network - a financial institution that stands for strength and stability and where culture counts- a culture of advice and guidance, relationships and teamwork, innovation and technology, community support, diversity and corporate responsibility. And we do so with passion, commitment and energy to help our clients succeed financially - to help our clients build, manage, preserve and transition their wealth.
