Grant Hood is an Investment Strategist with Compass Capital Management, serving in the financial industry since early 2017.
Originally from rural Waynesboro, Mississippi, Grant moved to Waxahachie, Texas in 2011 to attend Southwestern Assemblies of God University, earning his Church Ministries degree in 2013, and moving on to serve in customer service and account management for a local manufacturing company that same year.
Grant married his college sweetheart Heidi in 2016, and shortly thereafter began looking for a more meaningful career in the financial industry. After joining the ranks of Edward Jones in early 2017, he ran a successful financial advisory practice for nearly four years.
It was during his time with Edward Jones that Grant honed his investment skills and discovered how deeply he enjoyed making a difference for his clients by providing them with integrity-based services and detailed financial education that they were not always guaranteed elsewhere.
During the pandemic shelter in place of 2020, Grant and his wife realized they wanted to relocate to the middle Tennessee area (where they had honeymooned just four years earlier) to start and raise a family. Through much thought and prayer, they moved to Maury County in the fall of 2020.
It wasn't long before Grant joined the Compass Capital Management team in January of 2021, specializing in 401k investment planning. Grant holds a series 7 license through LPL Financial and a series 66 through LPL Financial and Private Advisor Group.
When he's not serving his clients, Grant enjoys serving in his local church, creating adventures with his best friend and wife Heidi, spoiling their dogs Batman and Wonder, and growing new friendships. His hobbies include chess and cards, as well as outdoor activities such as golf, canoeing, camping, and hunting.
"I enjoy helping my clients pursue financial confidence and strive toward their dreams through their investment decisions. It's less of a job and more of a calling for me. There's nothing like seeing the change in someone's countenance when they realize their dreams are within reach. " - Grant Hood
