Serving Hawaii's Families Since 1980

The E.A. Buck Family of Companies, founded in 1980, has been serving as Hawaii’s Tax Planners and Wealth Managers for over 35 years. We focus on Tax Planning, Social Security Planning, Active 401(K) Management, and Financial Planning.


Ed Buck, the firm’s founder, began his career as a science teacher in 1967 at Lihikai Junior High on the island of Maui. He transitioned into business and successfully ran several multi-million dollar businesses worldwide. A self-made millionaire, Ed quickly came to realize the impact of taxes on his overall financial plan. This impact to his finances gave Ed the motivation to understand the tax code and how the wealthy invest. Ed was driven to develop a way to use this knowledge to improve his personal financial plan. Ed’s personal quest became his passion, and ultimately, the driving force for what would soon become the E.A. Buck Family of Companies.


The E.A. Buck Family of Companies was established on the belief that everyone – regardless of wealth – should learn to utilize the 71,000 pages of the United States Tax Code. Opening his doors to all of the people of Hawaii, regardless of income or net worth, Ed and his team of wealth managers educate clients on how to utilize the tax code to their benefit and build a personal comprehensive plan for their wealth. Because wealth managers at E.A. Buck are not limited to one facet of finance, our clients often find themselves for the first time having the opportunity to gain access to professionals who can provide assistance with all aspects of their financial needs.


Today, the E.A. Buck Family of Companies has a staff of 24 professionals to serve you. Our team invites you to learn how our one-of-a-kind service and philosophy can help piece together your financial puzzle.
