We help high-income families optimize their wealth and create long-term financial success now, and during tough transitions. - Kenneth Klabunde, MSFP, CFP®, CDFA®

Fee-Only Financial Planner serving families in the Indianapolis, IN and Cincinnati, OH areas.

Kenneth Klabunde is a fee-only financial planner in Indianapolis, IN and Cincinnati, OH. Precedent Financial Strategies provides comprehensive and objective hourly financial planning to help physicians and medical professionals, individuals going through a divorce, and near-retirees organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Kenneth Klabunde is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

I founded Precedent Financial Strategies to provide wealth optimization solutions to those seeking professional guidance. We will work together to build a financial plan to fulfill your vision and create clear, concise action plans, tax reduction strategies, investment and lifetime income solutions, and optimize every aspect of your personal finances. 

I have been serving clients as a financial advisor since 1997, and specialize in the uniquely complex needs of physicians and similar professional families, particularly those going through divorce and rebuilding thereafter. We serve clients throughout the United States, and those living in the Cincinnati and Indianapolis regions.

Financial planning on an hourly basis is available. If you are seeking expertise in personal finance, investment and income solutions, tax strategies, and divorce finances, I invite you to schedule a consultation.
