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.

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.

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.
