Legacy is an independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) located in Overland Park, KS. Founded in 2006 by Jack Kynion II as Legacy Advisory Group, LLC (now, Legacy Advisory Ltd Co), Legacy has decades of experience assisting clients with identifying, planning for, and achieving their financial goals.
Under its 2nd generation of leadership, the advisors at Legacy continue practicing with the same principles set by our founder and mentor. In an industry that values volume over quality, convention over thought, scalability over nuance, Legacy remains committed to a different set of standards. We work with a small number of clients so that more time can be spent with each. We believe this results in higher quality plans, more thought on behalf of each client and a boutique experience.
