Experience Makes all the difference

Kim Penzone began her career in 1999, at the beginning of what could be described as one of the equity market's most tumultuous decades since the great depression. Over the past 16 years she has helped clients manage their wealth through good times and bad.

For Kim, investing is similar to her athletic passions...first set the goal and then work backwards in setting up the training plan in order to make sure you accomplish that goal.

Kim enjoys ultra distance sporting events (such as Ironman triathlons and ultra marathons), which require intense planning and preparation in multiple disciplines over a long period of time. She notes that many times during the training you are bombarded by unexpected events or injuries that can derail everything you've been working towards in an instant. She believes it takes focus and discipline to work through each difficulty by utilizing the best tools, knowledge and strategies that can be found in order to keep the plan in place. "I enjoy applying those same disciplines and strategies to helping my clients achieve their own personal financial goals at UBS. There will always be obstacles - the key to success is staying focused on the long term plan and making well thought out adjustments along the way."

Kim is a CFP professional; a designation awarded by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc., and also holds the Chartered Retirement Planning CounselorSM designation. She is series 7 & 66 licensed, as well as life, health and annuity insurance licensed.

Kim is a graduate of Capital University, and has been a member of their Alumni Board for 10 years. She resides in Powell with her husband, Pete; daughter, Samantha; and two Weimaraners. When she and her family are not doing some sort of outdoor sport, Kim likes to volunteer for Companion Dog Park in Powell or Preservation Parks of Delaware County. Although Kim likes to eat quite often, it is her husband who is the cook in the family. He is the 3rd generation owner of an Italian restaurant, The Florentine, in downtown Columbus.

As the newest addition to The Ruff-D'Herete Investment Group, Kim looks forward to continuing to provide the best service and investment solutions to her clients and the team's clients for many future generations.
