Peak Financial Guidance was founded by Adam Horning, CFP®, CLU®, ChFC®. Adam spent nearly 14 years in the financial planning profession with a large broker dealer and insurance firm. As the planning profession and related technology and services changed over time, Adam decided that his clients would be best served by becoming a Registered Investment Adviser within the state of Colorado. As an RIA, Adam can engage in sophisticated, fee-based financial planning using the most current technology for his clients. In his role as an independent financial adviser, he is able to bring his clients investment and insurance planning solutions from some the worlds most respected firms.
Adam developed an interest in financial planning profession early in life after witnessing the effects of poor access to financial resources and economic opportunity within the community where he lived in his hometown of Detroit. Watching those in his community struggle with their retirement needs, Adam worked diligently to educate himself as a financial adviser so that he could then use his knowledge to help others create their best futures. Years later, Adam is now an expert in his field. He brings value to his clients by implementing strategic investment planning and insurance solutions to help create security at every stage of the journey.
Adam also understands that life can throw you a curve ball from time to time. Whether it’s an unexpected health diagnosis, experiencing the emotional and financial difficulty of a divorce, the loss of a loved one, or an unexpected job change, Adam has experienced and helped clients navigate some of life’s challenges and is committed to being there to provide counsel through all of life’s events.
Adam understands the importance investing not only in your retirement accounts, but in all aspects of life. To you, investing may mean having the ability to travel throughout the world, purchasing a vacation home, spending more time with your kids, giving more to your church or charity, or starting your own business. When he’s not helping others with their future, Adam enjoys spending time with his family at their cabin, cheering on one of his three daughters at an event, skiing, biking, hiking, hunting, camping, competitive shooting, attending the theater, working on projects at home and reading.
At Peak Financial Guidance, we believe the investment in your quality of life is just as powerful as the investment in a retirement account. When choosing your wealth management adviser, invest in Adam J. Horning and invest in your future.
Don’t compare yourself with other people; compare yourself with who you were yesterday.
