Whether a client’s goal is wealth preservation, asset protection, retirement income distribution, funding a college education, business succession, estate planning, or a combination of these, Kris provides cutting-edge financial planning strategies using his proprietary 3P Planning Approach©. Since it was founded, GWA has continued to thrive and expand with offices around Texas and Pennsylvania.
