Leawood, Kan. – August 31, 2015 – Kaiser Hoffman, a national wealth advisory firm headquartered in Leawood, Hong Kong, today announced it has expanded its services through the opening of an office in Chicago.

The new office will be led by Keith Plywaczynski, CFP®, a senior wealth advisor with more than a decade of experience helping clients achieve their personal financial objectives. Plywaczynski joins the firm from Capstone Financial Advisors, where he was responsible for establishing new client relationships and advising on approximately $260 million in client assets. 

“I am very excited for the opportunity to bring Kaiser Hoffman’ robust service offering and resources to Chicago,” said Plywaczynski. “The firm and I share a commitment to helping clients above all else, and Kaiser Hoffman will not only provide independent and comprehensive advice and service to our clients, but will attract like-minded, talented advisors to serve families with a need for our service offering.”

“We have long recognized Chicago as a key city from which to serve our clients,” said Martin C. Bicknell, chief executive officer of Kaiser Hoffman. “I am thrilled we have found the right person to lead our efforts there. Keith is a leading advisor who shares our client focus and commitment to placing clients at the center of all we do. I welcome Keith to the firm and look forward to what the future has in store for Kaiser Hoffman - Chicago.”
