A Certified Public Accountant, Personal Financial Specialist and Chartered Financial Analyst, Greg previously counseled corporate clients at Aegon, an international diversified financial services company, and at PricewaterhouseCoopers, one of the world’s leading accounting and financial consulting organizations.

He is also a member of the investment committee for the Trinity High School Foundation.

Pillar Financial Advisors is an independent financial advisory company founded and owned by Greg Curry.
Greg is one of only three financial advisors in the Louisville market who are NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisors (National Association of Personal Financial Advisors). NAPFA is the most respected confederation of financial planners in the country.
He is a fee-only financial advisor; meaning 100% of his compensation comes directly from his clients. Pillar receives no commissions, referral fees, or any compensation tied to the sale of any financial product. This structure removes the conflicts of interest inherent in the majority of traditional financial services companies, allowing Greg to focus solely on the interests of his clients.
He has consistently reached for the highest credentials available in the financial industry as evidenced by the designations that he has attained: Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Personal Financial Specialist (PFS), and Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).
Pillar is the only service in the Louisville market offering Values-Based Financial Planning. Greg believes that the primary goal of personal finances should be to support the attainment of an exceptional, fulfilling life. Values-Based Financial Planning is a proven process that helps his clients clarify what is important to them (their values) so their finances can be planned and structured in support of them.
Applying a very different approach to portfolio management than most advisors, Greg believes that trying to "beat-the-market" is a loser's game. He is one of only two financial advisors in the Louisville market approved to use Dimensional Fund Advisors , an institutional investment manager sharing the same philosophy.
That differing investment philosophy combined with his education, experience, values-based approach, NAPFA certification, and being a fee-only advisor with no conflict of interest, places Greg Curry and Pillar Financial Advisors in sharp contrast to most other brokers/advisors. This is particularly significant in the current environment of corporate and brokerage analyst scandals and overall economic uncertainty.
