Happy 7th Birthday GK!

This month, Gerber Kawasaki Wealth & Investment Management celebrates its 7th year. Founded on June 1st, 2010, GK was the realization of a vision, motivated by the financial collapse of 2008. Prior to June 1st, 2010, Ross Gerber and I spent countless hours working on our business plan. Looking back, it is quite remarkable how closely we have stayed to our original business plan. We knew we didn’t want to be just another financial firm. We set out to disrupt the financial industry’s status quo and offer our clients a new, refreshing alternative to the banks and wirehouses that sent us into the biggest recession since the Great Depression.

Today, the dream has become more than a reality. Gerber Kawasaki is now a leader in the financial services industry. Ross Gerber is one of the most respected and coveted financial experts in the country, covering a wide range of financial topics for the most influential financial mediums in the world such as CNN, CNBC, Bloomberg, Fox Business, Reuters, Wall Street Journal, and many others. Our team of 25 highly dedicated advisors and staff members now manages nearly $600 million in clients’ assets spread over 4,000 households across the country.

Our success is predicated on 7 core values that are at the epicenter of everything we do. What an opportune time to share with you our 7 core values on our 7th birthday.
