Abundance Wealth Planning, LLC
Fee-Only financial planner located in Fremont, CA, serving clients locally and across the country
Joseph Kuo is a Fremont, CA fee-only financial planner. Abundance Wealth Planning, LLC provides comprehensive and objective financial planning, business coaching, and family wealth planning to help business owners, corporate executives, and attorney partners organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Joseph Kuo is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
I am a certified financial advisor and planner for attorneys, executives, and high equity professionals.
As a fee-only fiduciary, I work solely in your best interests. I do not sell or receive commissions on any financial products such as insurance policies or investment funds.
Money can stress us regardless of how much of it we have. Born into a family business, I received many mixed money messages while growing up:
- Money is supposed to provide safety and freedom, yet everyone seems to be chained to their jobs.
- We should work hard to build wealth so we can have a great future for our families, yet no one knows what that actually looks like.
- We want that great future for our loved ones, but we're so busy working we have no time for them.
It's not just about wealth, it is about well-being. If you have achieved success and wealth, but have financial questions or still feel that something isn't right, I can partner with you to:
- Clarify the goals that motivate you and uncover your “whys”.
- Design a robust plan to grow your business, protect your family, and help you navigate the changes that life throws at you.
- Use your finances and wealth as resources to help you achieve personal and financial well-being for you and your loved ones.

My clients want more from life even as they create and grow wealth. They are turning the paradigm from how to get more money, to what can money do for them. They understand that there are different skill sets involved with creating, maintaining, and inheriting wealth; the skills to create wealth do not translate automatically into the skills to stay wealthy. They want to design their legacy while knowing that future is uncertain. They appreciate the way to increase confidence is to develop their own resilience and resourcefulness to handle whatever may come.
