Financial Advisor Overview

Logan Lavelle Hunt can trace its roots back to 1919 with the founding of Lavelle Insurance Agency. Since that time we have grown both organically, as well as through merging with other like-minded firms. We have also grown through strategic acquisitions of firms where the culture and values matched those of ours. It is hard to believe we have been in business for close to 100 years, serving the needs of individuals and businesses with innovative investment, insurance, and risk management products. We are proud of our history and the founding principles which set the strong foundation for how we conduct our business today. Our philosophy is really quite simple – to take the time to understand the needs of our clients, match those needs with an appropriate financial plan, including personalized investment and insurance strategies, provide outstanding ongoing service, and being an advocate for our clients when they need us the most. We are a full-service firm! We offer a wide range of financial products and services to individuals and business owners, which includes comprehensive financial planning, property and casualty insurance, bonds, health insurance, and life insurance. We are an independent firm! We believe that by being independent, we are able to best represent our clients by offering an unbiased, broad portfolio of innovative investment, insurance, and risk management products and services. Our firm has a relationship with many different companies, so if we don’t have a product or service you need, we know a group that does. Our dedication to our clients and associates has helped to make Logan Lavelle Hunt one of the largest independent firms in our area. We are active partners in all of Kentucky, including the greater Louisville area, as well as Indiana. Please call us if you have any questions about our firm or the range of products and services we provide.
