Meet the Team

JHP Financial was founded by Jim Hannigan and Steve Papineau, *CFP ® in September 2017.  They met while working as financial advisors with FFP Wealth Management in 1999 servicing members at the Anoka Hennepin and Postal (Ideal) credit unions. 

In 2003 Jim was offered a dual role position at Securian Financial Group, both as a independent financial advisor and retirement income advisor.   In 2007 the position of retirement income advisor was available and Steve would join Jim at Securian where they worked together for over 13 years. 

In their roles with Securian they were responsible for annuity client retention, retirement plan rollovers and advanced marketing strategies.  As part of the actuarial team, they assisted in product development and provided technical analysis for tax and retirement planning strategies with the advanced marketing attorney.  In their roles as financial advisors, Jim and Steve continued to service their clients from their days at FFP Wealth Management while expanding their clientele from referrals. 

In late 2017, after many months of strategic business planning, Jim and Steve formed JHP Financial Services, Inc. and joined Focus Financial as a strategic partner.  

After 7 years with Focus Financial, Jim, Steve, and Drew made the decision to transition to LPL Financial.  While they have enjoyed their relationship with Focus Financial, they expect the new partnership with LPL will enhance services options, expand technology offerings, and increase independent investment choices while increasing our long-term stability.

Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Center for Financial Planning, Inc. owns and licenses the certification mark CFP® in the United States to Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc., which authorizes individuals who successfully complete the organization’s initial and ongoing certification requirements to use the certification mark.
