Kevin Cheeks, CFP®

About Kevin Cheeks, CFP®

Kevin Cheeks is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional specializing in equity compensation, tax-efficient financial planning, direct indexing and socially conscious investing. With close to two decades of experience in wealth management, Kevin has worked at several of the largest financial services firms such as Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Charles Schwab. While at Schwab, Kevin was responsible for advising stock plan participants at some of the largest tech companies in the San Francisco Bay Area, such as Apple, Facebook (Meta), Google (Alphabet), Twitter, Uber, and many others. In 2020 Kevin joined forces with several colleagues to help launch ECHO45, a boutique Registered Investment Advisor (RIA), where he served as the firm’s Chief Compliance Officer and Director of Planning Services, in addition to continuing to serve as a Financial Advisor to his own book of clients.

2020 proved to be not only an interesting time to launch a new firm, but also a historically important period in our country and around the world. After 2 years of helping to build and grow ECHO45, Kevin felt a calling to be doing something more. Having been brought up in a home with parents who served in the Peace Core, participated in the civil rights demonstrations in the 1960’s and were active in grassroots political campaigns, Kevin felt it was time to align his work with his ethos. “ImpactFI was born from the idea of creating a platform where investors can make a difference in the world around them while simultaneously accomplishing their own financial goals. Making money and making an impact don’t have to be mutually exclusive.” In April of 2022, ImpactFI opened its virtual doors for business.

When he’s not helping clients accomplish their financial and altruistic goals, Kevin and his partner, Sejal, enjoy taking advantage of life in the Bay Area with their dog, Nullah. An avid traveler and board sport enthusiast, from snowboarding in Canada to surfing in Sri Lanka, Kevin has visited 24 countries so far and looks forward to growing that list even longer. He’s also a self-proclaimed points and miles nerd. In 2019, he had the great fortune of being able to go on a surf and yoga themed sabbatical, during which he flew around the world, visiting 7 countries along the way, flying entirely in business class and almost entirely on points and miles!

And you need a financial advisor who views it the same way.

God is the ultimate planner, and my job is to help you discern and put that plan into action through structures that enable you “put out into the deep” and trust His providence.

About Gordon Achtermann, CFP®, CSRIC

I get it. Finding a Financial Planner that is a good match for you is not easy. The alphabet soup of credentials and terms can be confusing. I have been fortunate to have already served clients from coast to coast and from Alaska on down while based in Fairfax, VA. Why?

Like most firms, at Your Best Path we provide comprehensive financial planning, retirement planning, and investment management to help our clients.

There are a few things about my practice are different from the great majority of planners.

– The focus is exclusively on families in their peak earning years.

– Your Best Path serves individuals and families from from all walks of life. Therefore, I have no minimums for planning or asset management.

– As of 1/1/2022 our average managed asset household had $4 million under our management because I do not push asset management unless your situation is too complex for you to manage yourself, or you prefer to delegate that activity.

– I am a leader in the field of Sustainable, Responsible, and Impact Investing (SRI), having received the CSRIC designation – the first-ever certification for study in the investing with while considering Environmental, Social, and Governance

– I also have expertise developed over years working with clients from many branches of the Federal Government so I understand the intricacies of their various benefit programs.
