Little Rock, Arkansas – January 2, 2016 – After a five-year sabbatical from the money management industry, Steve Kiefer has reentered the fray.
56-year-old Kiefer began his career as a financial advisor, with a national firm in July, 2001. In 2003 he went independent and never looked back. He took a voluntary leave of absence in 2010 to spend more time with his family. Now that he and his wife, Alice are empty nesters, he says it’s time to reengage.
Kiefer says his door is open to new retirees, but that he won’t let his practice get as big as it used to be. “I was running a broker/dealership, with over a dozen staff before,” says Kiefer. “Now I look forward to managing a quiet practice with both new and old clients.” One major change Kiefer says his client’s will notice immediately, is the switch he’s made from a commission based practice, to a Fee-only one.
Kiefer’s company, Ally Wealth Management, is located in the same building as before at 15300 Kanis Road, in West Little Rock. Sadly, he says one member of the company will be conspicuously absent. “One day I came to work, and noticed my bear statue was gone. They didn’t get the bull, but the bear is no more.” He says he is taking steps to make sure the bull doesn’t disappear as well. He quips that he has the bull in “protective custody,” until certain security measures are complete.
Kiefer says his focus will remain the same as before, managing the investments and income of retired individuals and families. He says he enjoys the face-to-face style of contact, which, in his words, “builds strong, life-long relationships.”
Kiefer continues to host his live radio show, on 96.5 FM, The Answer, Saturday mornings at 9 am, where he invites his listeners to call in with their investment questions.
Since he’s only recently reopened his practice, Kiefer says he’s only had time to reconnect with a few old clients. He says he looks forward to contacting each of them one at a time.
