Before becoming a wealth management advisor, I was the kid in high school with subscriptions to Fortune and Money magazine. The stock market always intrigued me, but growing up I didn't know anyone that invested. I was fortunate to go to a school that had a business magnet program that allowed me to intern at one of the largest independent broker dealers in the country. This exposure at such an early age proved to be very formative. I went away to college and when I got back, was able to land a position in banking which later led to my journey as president of my own firm. Over the last 2 decades since that adventure began, I have had the challenge and pleasure of helping clients with their financial lives. The goal of our firm is to provide "Direction through life's transitions." Wealth Standard Financial puts its clients interests ahead of its own. Our goal is to help people gain clarity, become intentional, and get organized. My focus is working to be a guide for people as they navigate the financial complexities life throws at them. www.wealthstandardfinancial.com Investment advisory services offered through CWM, LLC, an SEC Registered Investment Advisor. Carson Partners, a division of CWM, LLC, is a nationwide partnership of advisors.

About Wealth Standard Financial

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.

About Disciplined Advisor Group

We’re here to help you achieve your financial goals, manage your money and ultimately, better your life. Unlike many other investment firms that use a cookie-cutter financial plan for all their investors, we apply our Purpose-Based Asset Management approach. By creating separate compartments for each investor's multiple purposes, we create a structure that allows for a prudent, less emotional investment decision-making process. We believe that markets are efficient and investment returns are determined by asset allocation and the passage of time, not by manager selection or market timing. We are focused on your security and work tirelessly toward one goal: help you achieve financial peace of mind. As a boutique money management firm, we offer you a service that is personal, private and exclusive. We know you can go many places for financial advice, but the clients of Disciplined Advisors Group benefit from the more than six decades of investment experience in which we are backed. As an independent advisory group, our advice is not influenced by a corporate parent and we are free to choose the right solutions for you. At Disciplined Advisors Group – trust, commitment and caring make up the foundation that provides services to our clients.

Brian is dedicated to providing each of his clients with a comprehensive and personalized plan to help reach their financial goals. Brian's extensive knowledge and experience has helped countless clients make the vision of their future a reality by helping them achieve financial freedom. Brian started his career in the 90's by working for a large bank to help pay for college. During this time, he learned the meaning of serving clients well. He quickly moved up the ranks and was managing client relationships rather early in his career. As a relationship manager for high net worth clients, Brian saw firsthand how people react to many financial situations out of emotion. This is common but often significantly hurts clients by not following a well-designed plan that accounts for these situations. It was then that he decided he wanted to confidently help clients answer the questions we ask ourselves. Questions like "am I on track to achieve my goals" or "do I have enough to last the rest of my life". Brian knew he wanted to work with Southwestern Investment Group (SWIG) after meeting the leadership team and many future teammates in all different seasons of their career. Brian came on board in 2013 knowing the strength SWIG offers in their commitment to a strong Christian culture and great team atmosphere that is unmatched. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER practitioner, Brian partners with his clients to simply help them achieve their goals. This includes detailed tax planning, insurance planning, estate planning as well as investment management and so much more. His goal is to identify any potential threat to a long-term plan and take steps to eliminate that threat which allows his clients to reach their financial goals and experience freedom. When outside of the office you can find Brian spending time with his wife and best friend, Ali, three daughters and grandmother who lives with them. He jokes that he is surrounded by women and never gets the TV remote. Each one of these relationships has continued to shape him and make him a better advisor/person. Brian is active in his Church serving on Sundays, leading a home group, leading a men's group and participating in a business group. With three young daughters there isn't a lot of free time but he wouldn't have it any other way. **Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. owns the certification marks CFP®, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER CFP®(with plaque design) and CFP® (with flame design) in the U.S., which it awards to individuals who successfully complete CFP Board's initial and ongoing certification requirements.

Craig Larson started in the financial services business after graduating from St. Olaf College in 1989 with a B.A. degree in Economics. From 1989 to 1996 he worked at Mass Mutual in Minneapolis as an insurance agent, then as investment specialist and investment sales manager for the branch. Craig established Larson Financial Advisors in 1996 as an independent firm to better meet the needs of clients. In 2011 this process was enhanced as Larson Financial Advisors became a Registered Investment Advisory firm and converted its investment operations to fee-only to provide the best and most unbiased advice possible. Craig previously worked on the board of directors of the Minneapolis Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors. Craig acquired his professional designations of Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) and Life Underwriter Training Council Fellow (LUTCF) and has served as an LUTCF class instructor. From 2004 through 2009 Craig was the Minneapolis chapter president of S.O.F.A. (Society for Financial Awareness) and has given seminars and workshops at a number of local organizations including Donaldson, Cray, Courage Center, Medica, Digital River and the F.B.I. Craig relocated his family from the Minneapolis, MN area to the Austin, TX area in 2016 and now operates an office in both locations. Craig lives in Georgetown, TX with his wife, Maria Estella Larson, and their three children. Craig enjoys playing guitar, inline skating, hiking and drag racing (at the track, not on the street!).

About Larson Financial Advisors

We are a fee-only investment advisor and use an 'advance and protect' strategy to minimize market losses during negative markets and rank and compare sectors and options to find the best trending holdings in positive markets.
