Fee-Only & Fiduciary


The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is the country's leading association of fee-only and fiduciary financial planners.

Craig Larsen is a St. Charles, IL Fee-Only Financial Planner serving the entire St. Charles area. AHC Advisors, Inc. specializes in providing objective financial planning and advice to help clients build, manage, grow, and protect their assets through life's transitions. Craig Larsen is a NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisor and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional.
Craig graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a BS in Finance and began his career in 1987 working on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and Chicago Board of Trade for Cargill Investor Services. While there he managed trading for investments that spanned the globe.

In 1995, he built upon his experience and founded AHC Advisors, Inc., with a focus on being a trusted fiduciary advisor to pension funds, individuals and business clients. He built his financial planning company on the foundation of being a fee-only investment advisor from the start. This enables AHC to deliver completely independent and objective investment advice and financial planning services. AHC serves clients in the suburbs of Chicago, locally in Saint Charles, Geneva, and Batavia.  AHC also has an office in Des Moines, Iowa.

Professionally, Craig serves as the President of the Financial Planning Association (FPA) of Illinois.  The FPA of Illinois is the largest Financial Planning Association chapter in the country with nearly 1000 members. He also is a member of the National Association of Professional Financial Advisors (NAPFA). Craig is a CFP® Professional and a Chartered Financial Consultant.

Craig is member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors and the Financial Planning Association. Both of these organizations advocate helping investors by requiring that anyone that calls themselves out as a financial planner is held to a Fiduciary standard. In fact, both the FPA and NAPFA, along with the CFP Board have long advocated that financial planners should be held to a fiduciary standard at all times.

CFP professionals are required pass both a comprehensive 10 hour, two day, CFP® Certification Examination, and the CFP Board’s Candidate Fitness Standards, as well as agree to abide by CFP Board’s Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility which puts clients’ interests first. CFP® certificants are required to complete 30 hours of continuing education every two years.

As a member of NAPFA, Craig is required to submit a comprehensive financial plan for peer review and complete 60 hours of continuing education in six subject areas every two years.  A NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisor must sign and abide by the NAPFA Fiduciary Oath, a commitment to working solely in the client’s interest at all times.

Craig is also very active in his community.  Craig is Vice-Chairman of the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Downtown St. Charles Partnership.  He serves as the chairperson for the St. Charles Holiday Homecoming and St. Patrick’s Day parades.  He has also coached youth baseball and soccer and has held numerous leadership posts in his church.

Starting in early 2006 he organized and led several week-long trips to Louisiana to help rebuild following Hurricane Katrina. Craig enjoys spending time with his family as well as making wine and learning to play guitar in his free time.
