In 1999, Dan Klein began his career in financial planning. At a time when many stock brokers and investment houses were pushing tech stocks and trying to catch the next hot investment Dan’s mission was simple: Help his clients achieve their family’s financial goals through honest and competent financial planning. From that simplest of beginnings he has built, one client at a time, a reputation as one of the most trusted financial planners in the area.
Dan frequently works side by side with his client’s CPAs, attorneys, bankers, and families to help articulate, define, monitor, and work toward their financial goals. He recognizes the intimate connection between pursuing his client’s financial goals and how that may enable them to achieve their life’s goals and passions.
Dan’s roots in education (prior to joining the financial industry he taught 5th grade) are the basis for his passion in providing financial education opportunities to both his clients and the community. Every year he offers clients opportunities to learn more about their finances. In the past he has had representatives from the social security administration, estate planning attorneys, and finance professors address his clients. In 2010 he coordinated a financial literacy series with Western Kentucky University’s financial planning department. Dan was also in charge of the educational component for a Barren County bank’s participation in a pilot program from the FDIC that included only 9 banks nationwide.
Dan is married to Claire and they have 4 active children. He is also a cancer survivor which provides him with a unique perspective on what money and finances ultimately mean. Not just figures on paper but rather tools that allow someone to pursuit their life’s work with a sense of direction and security.
Dan is a CFP® Practitioner. In addition he has his Series 4 (Registered Options Principal), Series 7 (General Securities Representative) and Series 63 (Uniform Securities Agent State Law) registrations through LPL Financial, Series 65 (Uniform Investment Advisor Law) through Lockshield Partners, and his State of Kentucky Life, Health, Variable Annuity, and General Lines insurance licenses. Dan, along with Jodi Walden, served on an LPL Financial Advisory Council in 2009. From more than 3,000 advisors nationwide LPL Financial invites only 24 hand picked advisors to sit on the council for their integrity and service to their clients.
