DALLAS, TX, December 22, 2015 – HilltopSecurities has launched a new enterprise relationship with PIEtech, Inc., the creators of MoneyGuidePro® financial planning software.

“This is a game changer for our firm, advisors and clients,” said David E. Geschke, chief executive officer of HilltopSecurities Independent Network (HTIN) and director of retail for HilltopSecurities. “We are focused on empowering our clients with the tools and information to take charge of their financial futures, while maintaining the focused, personal service provided by our experienced advisors. MoneyGuidePro fits perfectly with this approach.”
