Anthony Hernandez was born and raised in the southeast Houston area. He is an Associate Advisor and the Director of Smart Money Advantage—a program created to provide clarity and instill confidence in personal finances for young professionals and families. Growing up in a household where his parents stressed the importance of financial literacy, he has developed a passion for empowering clients to make the right decisions for their financial futures without sacrificing more than necessary.

Anthony believes that one size does NOT fit all in financial planning. Everyone has a different starting point and place they want to go. When beginning a relationship with a new client, Anthony stresses the importance of establishing a clear picture of where the client is today and what they want to accomplish. After the big picture is established, Anthony creates bite-size goals that are easy to manage and keep the client moving toward their overall goals.

A proud alumnus of the University of Houston, Anthony holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance and Management Information Systems. Currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Personal Financial Planning at Texas Tech University, Anthony desires to serve traditionally underserved demographics.

Anthony joined Worthen Financial Advisors in November 2021, initially serving as a Client Services Associate. While performing the day-to-day duties of a CSA, he played a pivotal role in developing the Smart Money Advantage program.

Outside of his professional pursuits, Anthony resides in the greater Houston area with his girlfriend, Madeline, and their loyal-legged companion, Buddy. An outdoors enthusiast, Anthony enjoys camping, golfing, rucking, hiking and staying active. Anthony values quality time spent with friends and family as well.
