a Registered Investment Adviser
At KOHR Investments, LLC, we are independent fiduciary investment advisors. What does that mean? Simply put, it means that we’re not tied to a specific provider whose products we’re encouraged to sell. We provide investment advice and make decisions based on our clients’ best interests, not based on commissions from partners and third-party service providers. Fiduciaries are required to act for our clients’ best interests at all times, and that’s exactly what we do.
Trusted, Tailored Financial Advice
Many advisors who are tied to third-party providers will recommend the same products to their clients—because those products offer the highest commissions. As independent fiduciaries, we provide more tailored, customized advice for your investment portfolios, because every decision is based on your unique needs, and nothing else. Our goal is to serve, not sell.
Your dedicated investment advisor gets to know you on a personal level and will only ever select an investment vehicle that will work for your selected financial strategy. Without the pressure to sell certain products, we can provide our clients with more options, better portfolio customization, and greater peace of mind.
Risk Number® technology objectively calculates an investor's true risk tolerance, utilizing a scientific framework that won the Nobel Prize for Economics. By taking a 5 minute quiz, we will be able to pinpoint and quantify your exact risk tolerance, which will then help you align your current portfolio with your true investment goals and expectations. This is easily the best technology we use in our practice and it gives our clients an edge in understanding risk.
Many factors go into establishing your goals, and all of these impact how we create your financial plan. Being able to clearly articulate your needs and expectations will help you (and us) make an informed decision about how we can help you. We want to understand your goals and your particular financial situation and make recommendations that are suitable for you. Some important factors to consider in defining your goals include:
It’s a good idea to consider these factors before our first meeting so that we can get a comprehensive picture of your financial situation and establish a holistic plan that fits you. The details of our process are outlines more below.

With this structure, successful growth of your assets means success for us as well, so we take greater accountability in growing your wealth. We may also charge hourly or flat fees in conjunction with a specific, one-time service, like developing a financial plan. If you ever have any questions regarding our fees and billing, we invite you to contact your dedicated financial advisor.
