Ken Hargreaves

CFP®, AIF®, AWMA®, CRPC®

Founder, Wealth Manager

A Florida native, and full-time Sarasota resident, Ken founded WealthGen Advisors, LLC after spending more than fourteen years in the financial advisory industry. 

During that time, Ken witnessed a wide variation of technology, expertise and advice models that didn’t always put the client first or optimize their financial situation. WealthGen Advisors was created to provide high-tech, high-quality, independent, and personalized advice that taps into the most up-to-date investment philosophies, income distribution, and tax mitigation strategies to optimize client outcomes. All this, delivered in a low-fee, commission-free atmosphere, that puts the clients’ interest above all things.

Prior to founding WealthGen Advisors, Ken spent almost a decade in New York and then Texas as Vice President at The Capital Group, a $2T global investment manager serving institutional clients and pension funds. He also served as director to a registered investment advisory firm in Florida, where he specialized in managing investments, family and small business financial planning, and retirement income optimization analysis and strategy. Ken is a frequent speaker on Financial Planning topics and has served on the board of directors for the New York City Financial Planning Association. He is a member of the Investments and Wealth Institute (IWI), Financial Planning Association (FPA), XYPlanning Network, and the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA). 

Ken earned a B.S. in Finance, from Florida State University. He also has completed an advanced investment and statistics program through Yale University. He holds FINRA Series 7 and 66 licenses, as well as the Certified Financial Planner®, Accredited Wealth Management Advisor®, Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor®, and Accredited Investment Fiduciary® designations.
