Associate Services

KFG associates are:

  • qualified and experienced financial professionals.
  • investment professionals who have a commitment to comprehensive financial planning as a way to conduct business with clients and who are interested in pursuing a lifelong relationship with our clients.
  • specialized professionals who occasionally require the use of a full-service firm to provide investment, insurance and fee-based financial advice to clients.
  • insurance professionals who desire an independent platform to
    conduct business.
  • individuals seeking a partnership with seasoned and experienced professionals to fast-start their career and help provide clients with sound financial recommendations.

The complex nature of estate and financial planning and the use of sophisticated techniques by our associates often require specialization or advanced degrees, or both. A variety of associates within the firm often work with you as a team of highly qualified specialists.
