Financial Advisor and President
As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to help you achieve your life goals. - Kevin Michels, CFP®, EA
I specialize in tax-efficient investment management and financial planning.
Kevin Michels is a fee-only financial planner in Salt Lake City, UT (Draper, UT). Medicus Wealth Planning offers hourly financial planning and fee-only investment management to our clients throughout Utah, Arizona, and surrounding states. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Kevin Michels is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
Kevin Michels is the owner and President of Medicus Wealth Planning.
Kevin got his start in the financial planning industry by working for one of the largest discount brokerage and mutual fund companies in the world, Fidelity Investments. After being promoted to a department that assisted business owners in creating and maintaining company-sponsored retirement plans, he found his passion: helping individuals and families prepare for a financially successful retirement.
In 2014, Kevin partnered with David Luke and they later formed Medicus Wealth Planning. Having the opportunity to work with clients on a fee-only basis allows Kevin to give objective and sound financial planning advice that is never tainted by a hidden agenda.
Kevin graduated from Utah Valley University with a degree in personal financial planning. Utah Valley University’s Financial Planning Program has been recognized on numerous occasions as one of the nation’s top 10 financial planning programs. Shortly after graduating with a degree in personal financial planning, Kevin became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®). He is also an IRS Enrolled Agent (EA), which grants Kevin the right to represent taxpayers before the IRS.
In addition to working with his clients, Kevin really enjoys writing about financial planning. He's been quoted, published, and interviewed in a variety of news outlets including Yahoo! Finance, Nerd Wallet, KUTV Channel 2 News, MSN Money, NASDAQ, Investopedia, The Penny Hoarder, and Utah Business Magazine.
Kevin actively participates in the professional financial planning community by serving on the Public Relations Committee of the Financial Planning Association’s Utah Chapter.
Kevin lives in Riverton, Utah with his wife, Lauren, and their four children. They love being active and spending time outdoors as a family including camping, mountain biking, trail running, and CrossFit. Kevin and Lauren are both "die-hard" Utah Jazz and Minnesota Vikings fans and never miss a game.
