St. Petersburg Times personal finance editor Helen Huntley tells readers Tuesday on her “Money Talk” blog that her departure from the paper at the end of the month after 37 years means the beginning of a new career.

Helen HuntleyHuntley writes, “Although I am retiring from the Times, I am not actually retiring. I will be an independent financial adviser, offering advice on a fee-only basis, and will have an office in downtown St. Petersburg.”

In an e-mail to Talking Biz News, Huntley writes, “I will be opening an office in downtown St. Petersburg with a friend of mine who is already in this business. We’ll be Holifield Huntley.”

Huntley’s last day at the paper will be Aug. 29.

In the last two years, Huntley has been known for documenting the investment scam run by Lou Pearlman, a former music producer. He allegedly stole more than $300 million from banks and investors before being sentenced to prison earlier this year.
