Although he began his education and career in computer engineering, his deep desire to help and connect with people has led him to work in insurance and financial products and services since the late 1990’s.

With this designation, he has a fiduciary duty to put his client’s interests first.

Andrew Kagan grew up in Sacramento, CA where he graduated from Bella Vista High School. He then lived in Arizona and earned his degree from the W.P Carey School of Business. His education built the groundwork for his professional career and he actively participated in both the community and his professional life.
During college, Andrew saw first-hand why having the right protections in place is so important. He watched his own grandfather struggle to pay for the care of his grandmother because the insurance they had would not cover her residential and in-home care. The grief and hassle of this experience was unbearable for his family. Andrew resolved to do everything he could to provide the best service and knowledge possible to each and every pre-retiree and retiree he came across.
Andrew has been in the insurance and financial industry for over a decade now. His mentality is, “If you do the right thing first, then you’ll have clients and no complaints later.” With this moral compass, he has helped hundreds of people find the most suitable options for their retirement situation. Andrew and his team strive to create client-minded strategies that focus on securing your future.
