    Kim Kramer | President

    As a financial professional with a distinguished career spanning over many years, Kim has helped various families feel confident in their financial future. She brings a balance of big bank experience and private wealth expertise to her clients, which is helpful when helping them achieve their financial goals. It is her goal for her clients and their families to have better financial and personal outcomes because of the solutions Legacy Wealth Solutions, Inc. provides.

    Entering the financial services industry in 1981, Kim began her banking career immediately after graduating Westminster College as a Management Trainee for Mellon Bank in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She then spent 10 years as a Vice President and Loan Team Leader with Wells Fargo Commercial Banking Group in San Diego. While working for Wells Fargo she completed her MBA at the University of San Diego.

    Kim worked with many self-made business owners during this time of her career, helping them transition their businesses and attract and retain key employees. She saw firsthand how important this work was to the people she was helping, and she realized her purpose in life to make an even bigger impact on others’ lives by becoming a financial advisor.

    In 2002, Kim was hired by PNC Advisors as Vice President and Client Advisor in Ligonier, Pennsylvania. From there, National City Private Client Group hired Kim in 2006 to open a new office in Ligonier, Pennsylvania.

She spends as much time as needed to truly understand her clients and their families and help them from a wealth preservation, income and legacy standpoint. This often requires working collaboratively with clients’ other advisors and, in some cases, introducing additional professionals with specialized skill sets and qualifications.

    Kim’s areas of knowledge and experience include wealth and asset preservation, retirement income and charitable gifts. Her network of experts across the country helps generate ideas and strategies for each client situation. Many clients are in transition, either from divorce, the death of a spouse, the sale of a business or pending retirement, all of which cause financial stress and confusion. Kim helps clients map a path to the next phase of their financial life with confidence. Kim has helped numerous clients make significant charitable gifts, while in many cases putting the heirs in a better position. She also has an active practice with women in transition and women owned businesses.

Withdrawals prior to age 59-1/2 may result in a 10% IRS tax penalty, in addition to any ordinary income tax. Any guarantees of the annuity are backed by the financial strength of the underlying insurance company.

    2 Asset protection plans should be developed and implemented well before problems arise. Due to the fraudulent transfer laws, asset transfers that occur close in proximity to the filing of a lawsuit or bankruptcy can be interpreted by the court as a fraudulent transfer. Proper structuring of these assets is imperative please seek proper legal and tax advice prior to engaging in re-titling/structuring of any assets. Please note that laws are subject to change and can have an impact on your asset protection strategy.
