As an established family business of over 30 years, we are happy to recommend Kari Leoganda and Nancy Fong as our trusted financial advisors.

We found Kari and Nancy to be excellent communicators and they make things easy for us to understand. With deep understanding of our culture they know what we really want, helping us clarify our goals and giving us excellent advice.

Furthermore, we enjoyed the follow up and review process, where we go over what we have done and look at what needs to be done. Clearly, they have put so much thought into our situation. They are able to catch what we want and educate us on how to achieve it.

We appreciate their excellent attitude, their ability to remain neutral and think for the benefit of our entire family and look after the relational dynamics. They are excellent with seniors. When it comes to estate planning, they open people up to talk and easily start the planning process. Especially, Nancy who has been willing to go out of her way to accompany us to the tax lawyer’s and accountant’s office to ensure everyone is working towards the same goal.

Kari and Nancy have really helped us to open our family channels, letting us understand each other better, especially on important issues. They have greatly helped our family of two generations open up and communicate on issues of business & estate planning and shareholders’ agreement.

Moreover, their office location, excellent design and set up, makes people feel relaxed and happy to be there.

Overall, they introduced us to products more improved than what we had before. They really take a lot of stress out of financial planning and make things clear for us. We can clearly see positive results after working with Kari and Nancy.

Enabled our family owned company to be better protected against potential hardships…

My experience with them has enabled our family owned company and for myself and other family members personally, to be better protected against potential hardships that would be faced at time of business succession and personal tragedy.

show more

From the first time we met Kari and Nancy we found their approach of helping us to identify our family and company needs to be very detailed yet unassuming. Once our needs were identified, whether it to be setting up a will, purchasing insurance, or giving advice about corporate structure we found Leoganda provided a diverse range of services and what they could not provide were quick to recommend and refer us to a qualified professional. The setting up our Wills is a prime example of this. Arranging a Will was something we imagined would be very complicated but with Nancy going as far as accompanying us to the Lawyer’s office the whole experience ended up being relatively simple and stress free.

It is without a doubt that Leoganda has helped position our company and us personally to a more secure future and it with the utmost confidence that we feel that their skill set, persistence, and overall demeanor will be required to help us navigate our changing needs going forward.

They genuinely care about our business and well being, and are valuable business partners to our team…

We were referred to Kari Leoganda by one of our senior management staff about a year ago. My partners and I have always been skeptical about offers and promises made by insurance agents and estate planning specialists. However after a couple initial meetings with Kari and her colleague, Nancy Fong, we found them to be trustworthy, sincere, and knowledgeable about insurance products and business continuation planning issues..

show more

Kari and Nancy are both very organized and methodical. They spent a lot of time trying to understand our business, each business partner’s financial goals, and our organization structure before giving us a proposal. They offered us a lot of valuable advice about our risk exposure and practical suggestions in mitigating those risks. Kari’s presentation was not solely on introducing us to insurance products and services but also include business continuation planning and organization structure recommendation. As hands on business owners, analyzing insurance needs and business continuation planning were not on the top of our agenda but Kari and her team was very persistent with regular follow-ups to guide us through the process.

We have since re-evaluated our business and individual insurance needs and have put our faith in the Leoganda team to look after our insurance coverage for both our business and families. My business partners and I are very happy with the new insurance policies in place to protect us, the company, and our family. Kari and Nancy are still working with us closely to assist us with some other organization structure. We feel they genuinely care about our business and well being, and are valuable business partners to our team.

Although we have only been a client with Leoganda Financial Service for about a year, we feel we have known Kari and Nancy for a long time because of their sincere and personable manner. They are both very efficient and great communicators. We highly recommend Kari and her team to any entrepreneurs or business owners who would like to learn more about business risk exposure, insurance, and business continuation planning.
