Michael “Mike” Porembski

Investment Advisor Representative

My name is Michael (Mike) Porembski and I am an Investment Advisor Representative & Fiduciary. Being a fiduciary means that I am obligated to put the client’s best interest ahead of mine. I tell my clients that I treat their money as if it were my own, and I mean that.

My credentials include a Bachelor’s degree in Business/Biology, and a Master of Science degree in Banking and Financial Services Management from Boston University. Additionally, I was a financial Controller for a company in KCMO with $10M+ in revenues for 17 years. Concurrent to that, I have been a firefighter for 21 years with the Kansas City, Kansas Fire Department. As such, my unusual background has resulted in my having a unique perspective in understanding the benefit options of KPERS, as well as the many opportunities afforded by the 457(b) plan, and the HSA, which I have found are generally quite misunderstood. As I am in the “same boat” as all KPERS/KPF employees, I am in a unique position being a fiduciary, and have the knowledge that I do relating to the many nuances of these investment vehicles.

Finally, whether you are an ordinary citizen, or a government employee, I take my fiduciary duty, client responsibilities, and customer service very seriously. If I were to have the privilege of being your advisor, you can rest assured that I really will treat it as if it were my own.
