A Recognized Investment Management Firm that You Can Trust
Why? We are a recognized leader in wealth management. From 1998 through 2003, Rick Kahler, the founder of Kahler Financial Group, served (by appointment of the South Dakota Legislature) on the South Dakota Investment Council and later became the Chairman. At that time, the South Dakota Investment Council managed more than $6.5 billion for the citizens of South Dakota, including South Dakota's retirement system plans for over 70,000 members.
Rick describes our style of investing in terms of baseball. Our investment style is not like Babe Ruth. Babe hit home runs and he was also the all-time strikeout leader. We rarely go down swinging or hit home runs. Our investment style is more like Ty Cobb, who consistently took his team to the World Series by consistently hitting lots of singles and doubles.
Investment Solutions, Not Products
As a client of Kahler Financial Group, an independent RIA (a registered investment advisor with the SEC), you will be offered investment management strategies that are really in your best interest rather than a broker's. Because of our client-centered, fee-only method of compensation, we do not receive commissions on any investment products. Our allegiance is to you.
Unlike most brokerage firms and some bank trust departments, who earn commissions or strive to place clients in their proprietary products, we choose from an unlimited number of investments and design an investment management strategy to meet your objectives.
Our relationship with you is as that of a fiduciary, similar to the relationship you have with your doctor, attorney, and accountant. We are your financial advocate and confidant. Unlike the fees paid to commission-driven brokers at brokerage firms, the fee-for-service you pay to us is tax deductible.
