BACKGROUND

Ken Gillaspie
Ken Gillaspie was a founding partner of Security First Advisors and an active member of the Money Quotient community of life-centered, values-based, financial planning professionals. Our two organizations teamed up to create the Ken Gillaspie Legacy Fund to honor this special man in a way we think would please him very much.

Ken understood the link between his personal and professional growth and his ability to effectively guide clients in a life planning process. He frequently commented to his colleagues that the tools and training developed by Money Quotient helped him to meet these objectives and to develop trusting and fruitful relationships with his clients. Therefore, it seems a fitting tribute to Ken to support other financial planning professionals, students, and educators in accessing the same tools and training.   
 
Contributions to the Ken Gillaspie Legacy Fund are used to fund scholarships for the Money Quotient "Fundamentals of Financial Life Planning" Training course and related travel expenses.
