All financial planners are not created equal. At Kajiwara Wealth Advisors, we have the advantage of two perspectives – as a CPA/PFS and a CFP. A Personal Financial Specialist (PFS) is more than a financial planner – they are a CPA with the combination of tax experience and comprehensive knowledge of financial planning. CPAs have long been considered the standard for financial knowledge, objectivity, and integrity.
As a Certified Financial Planner, or CFP®, this background, along with over 33 years of experience, provides you the expertise in all areas of personal financial planning – including estate, retirement, investments, and insurance.
