My name is Patrick Williams and I have been managing investor assets since 1985 to provide a comprehensive customized approach to individual investors who wanted to take advantage of my experiences, knowledge and methodology. With more than 30 years of investment experience, I have weathered both the ups and downs of the market cycles. My goal is to minimize portfolio downside exposure while maximizing the risk adjusted returns required by investors who seek to preserve and/or grow their portfolios.

In 2002, being a founding principal and managing partner of KNW Group, LLC. which I later successfully negotiated the sale of the company to National Financial Partners in 2004.

My career has included a variety of responsibilities as a financial planner, retirement plan specialist, investment advisor and plan fiduciary. I have been a frequent seminar speaker on personal investing and retirement plans.
