About Kevin Lao, CFP®
Nice to meet you!
I started in the financial services industry in 2008, amidst the Great
Recession. It was both a fascinating and heartbreaking time to start in this business. I’ve spoken to countless families who’s retirement plans were delayed years because of it, and this had a significant impact on my career path. I obtained my CFP designation at Georgetown University in 2011. The head professor of the program made a profound statement to me (us); “You can’t do this business the right way if you make a living selling products for commissions.” From that moment it clicked, I needed to cut out the conflicts of interest inherent with big wall street, brokerage, and insurance companies. I found a community of other like-minded financial advisors, also known as fiduciaries, and decided to launch my own firm to better serve you.
When I’m not diving into retirement planning or tax planning strategies for
my clients, I enjoy playing golf twice a year (once on Father’s Day and once on
my birthday), cooking, fishing, anything outdoors, and of course spending time
with my family. My beautiful wife, Jessica, and I have three boys who force us to be the best version of ourselves every day.
Now that you know more about me, I would love to get to know you!
