Why AKM Advisory?

Individually Tailored Portfolio Management

As a result of completing a thorough financial planning process, your investment portfolio will reflect your unique needs, circumstances, and goals.


AKM Advisory's Principal, Adam K. Mans, has over twenty years investment experience. In addition to his M.B.A. in finance from the University of Minnesota, Adam has earned two well respected professional designations, Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®), from the CFA Institute and the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, respectively. Please see their websites at and for additional information regarding these designations.

Investment Discipline

AKM Advisory's emphasis is on a long-term, academically based and cost effective approach. Maintaining discipline through widely varying market environments, both good and bad, is often the difference between success and failure in investing.


AKM Advisory is committed to a high level of client service. By working with a relatively small number of clients, AKM can offer very personal and highly responsive relationships.


Putting clients' interests first is not merely the right way to do business, it's required of AKM Advisory in multiple ways. First, as a registered investment advisor (RIA), AKM is required to adhere to a fiduciary standard with respect to all of its clients.

Additionally, both the CFA and CFP® designations require adherence to their own codes of conduct. Please see the CFA Institute's Codes, Standards, and Guidelines; and the CFP Board's Standards of Professional Conduct for additional information.
