About KHC Wealth Management

At KHC Wealth Management, we seek to help business leaders achieve their life goals.  Through all stages of your life, we strive to help you with three things:

  • Clarify Goals
  • Create an action plan
  • Take action to make life count!

We define wealth more broadly than most wealth advisory firms.  Wealth consists of two forms of capital:  Financial Capital and Human Capital, which is your time, talents and experience.

In the Financial Capital area, KHC provides financial planning, wealth management and investment management services through a highly personalized process. The process begins and ends with you, the client, and what you want your money to do for you.  Our clients  understand that money is not the objective, but a means to building the life they desire.
In the Human Capital arena, KHC’s services include executive coaching, career transition coaching and career planning.  Proactively managing your career and building a successful career is integral to the growth and protection of your financial capital.
