    Tom King

    Senior Advisor

    Tom King brings with him almost three decades of extensive experience in finance services. His advice is built around two simple rules; it is much easier to achieve your financial goals if you keep more of what you earned, and putting all your eggs in one basket isn’t a bad idea as long as you have a tight grip on the basket. Tom’s clients are guided in advanced tax, insurance, risk management and asset protection strategies as well as conservative investment strategies that reduce risk and increase returns. All advice is client-centered and based on the needs of each individual client. Tom is a graduate of California State University of Sacramento with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. Tom has also taken roles to help numerous companies reorganize, grow, and achieve their goals.

    Tom has a wonderful wife and four children that make him proud every day.
