Life becomes easier when you have the right people on your side.

With years of experience working with large corporations around the world and most recently as part of a large advisory team, Ken felt that there was something missing in the generalized approach to market investment strategies and felt that he could help offer more value and protections to his clients.

Opening Barbican Wealth was an opportunity for Ken to focus on a select group of clients and offer them personalized attention to help provide a plan to a more secure financial future. With nearly three decades of experience advising clients on both tax and investment management solutions he is in the unique position to help make a difference in the life of hard-working professionals – to help secure the wealth they have accumulated to help meet future family goals, have a secure retirement and help protect wealth for generations to come.
