For some, success comes as a result of loving what they do. That’s the case with Patricia Raskob, owner of Raskob Kambourian Financial Advisors, LTD.
After becoming certified as a financial planner, Raskob, alongside business partner Patricia Kambourian, decided to begin a private financial practice in 1986.
Despite having a solid educational background with a bachelor’s degree from Kansas State University, as well having obtained an abundance of field experience by working in the industry for years, Raskob said branching out on her own was somewhat intimidating.
“It was one of those things where you think, ‘I can do this,’ but when it really comes down to it, you think, ‘Can I?’” said Raskob.
Twenty-eight years later, with the business still running strong, the answer to that question is a resounding ‘yes.’ In fact, many of RK Financial Advisors’ clients have been with the company from the very beginning.
“I think that really says something about our business,” said Raskob.
RK Financial offers a number of services including financial planning, trust services, wealth services, investment management services, tax preparation and planning, and pension plan set-up and management.
“We do everything that could impact our clients’ financial life,” said Raskob. “We try to take the stress out of money decisions. We want our clients to have someone to talk to in order to make their lives easier, and we are a highly credentialed firm that can do that.”
RK Financial has a well-trained, well educated staff that Raskob says can handle any financial situation – be it something as simple as purchasing a car to more complex elements such as retirement planning.
“I’m confident I have found the next two generations of employees for RK Financial,” she said.
Of her own success, Raskob said it came merely as a result of enjoying working with people.
“I love it,” she said. “I love seeing the light go on in their eyes when you tell them they can afford to take that trip, or buy that car, or that they can live to be 120 years old and not run out of money. We do what we do because we enjoy doing what is right for our clients.”
Raskob is a Certified Financial Planner, Enrolled Agent (enrolled to practice before the Internal Revenue Service on tax matters), and is an Accredited Tax Advisor. She has been admitted to the Registry of CFP Licensed Practitioners and is a Fellow of the National Tax Practice Institute. Pat is a member of the Financial Planners Association, the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors, the National Association of Tax Practitioners, and the National Association of Enrolled Agents. She serves on a number of community boards.
