I have been an Independent Financial Service Representative since 2000, and have been involved in
business management and finances for over 20 years. As any independent advisor, I specialize in
working with individuals and small businesses to provide solutions that help his clients to reach
their financial goals.
While some financial advisors focus on selling products, I focus on solutions, specifically customizing plans to suit my clients' individual needs. I educate clients to lessen their worries and to help them make more informed financial decisions, by offering a professional, independent and unbiased viewpoint.
I focus on helping a select group of high net worth individuals and retirees to manage all aspects of their financial lives from investment strategies, retirement planning, estate planning issues, risk management and retirement income distribution.

Ken does not believe in cookie cutter financial plans. Everyone's needs and goals are different; what may make sense for one person may not make sense for another, even if they are at the same age or stage in life. To Ken, financial independence means reaching the point where work becomes optional and retirement becomes affordablebut each person might define that differently.
This is one of the things that sets Ken apart from other advisors; his commitment to thinking holistically and creatively so that he can help his clients work towards their unique financial goals.Ken is dedicated to helping clients pursue financial independence through practical, values-driven financial plans.
Ken focuses on advising clients how to pursue their financial goals, pay less in taxes, affordably pay for college, invest smarter, and properly protect their hard-earned assets. He thrives in his role as a financial mentor and enjoys guiding individuals and families through all stages of their financial lives.
