KRPG is an independent wealth management advisory and retirement plan management firm based in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area. The Company offers fee-based financial advisory services to individual and family investors and provides ERISA 3(21) and 3(38) fiduciary services to company retirement plan sponsors and their plan participants.

Founded in 2004 by Walter L. Ziffer, KRPG began when Walt and a select group of experienced professionals shared a common vision of providing informed, unbiased financial advice to individuals, families, and business owners.

After decades of working at large financial institutions, the founding members of the company believed that an independent, fee-based advisory model would best serve the interests of their clients by allowing them to offer a wide range of solutions without bias or influence towards proprietary products and services.

Today, KRPG continues to operate upon this foundation, providing customized approaches and a commitment to accessibility and service that helps its clients pursue their financial objectives. Because of this client-centric philosophy, the company is now the trusted advisor to over $750 million in client assets.

According to Walt, “KRPG really differentiates itself through its comprehensive service offerings, the ability to tailor those offerings to meet the individual needs of our clients, and our indepth industry knowledge. When taken together, this approach allows us to develop and maintain deep, tenured relationships with our clients.”

Walt, a nine-time Five Star Wealth Manager award-winning advisor, holds the Series 6, 63, and 65 securities registrations.

His professional designations and certificates include the Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF®) designation, Nonqualified Plan Advisor (NQPA®) designation, Certified Plan Fiduciary Advisor (CPFA®) credential, NQPA® (Nonqualified Plan Advisor) and CBC® (Cash Balance Consultant) certifications as well as two certificates in Behavior Finance.
Walt routinely serves as a guest speaker and focus group member for various financial services firms. Walt is currently a member of the Advisory Council for Morningstar Investment Services and Vanguard Research Community.

Collectively, the KRPG team members have over 90 years of experience providing client-focused strategies and excellence in customer service to their clients.

For individual and family investors, the company offers feebased financial advisory services in the areas of wealth management and financial planning, including portfolio analysis, asset allocation and management, tax-advantaged investing, benefit planning, retirement planning, college planning, estate planning and risk management. Meanwhile, company retirement plan sponsors and their plan participants can take advantage of KRPG’s ERISA 3(21) and 3(38) fiduciary services, employer and employee education, and financial consulting services.

Our customized approaches and commitment to accessibility and service allow us to develop life-long relationships with our clients, helping them navigate volatile market and economic conditions as they seek financial independence

Across its wealth and retirement plan management offerings, a driving force behind the company’s success has been the high level of customer service afforded its clients – every client is important, and every client’s needs matter.

As Walt surmises, “Our customized approaches and commitment to accessibility and service allow us to develop life-long relationships with our clients, helping them navigate volatile market and economic conditions as they seek financial independence.”
