Kevin Kraft

Investment Advisor Representative, President

(209) 223-0460

Kevin Kraft focuses on helping his clients manage wealth and work toward financial freedom by developing and instituting sound investment plans backed by experience, performance, and statistical data. He earned his Bachelor’s degree from California State University, Long Beach. Upon graduation, he was hired to manage an investment research firm in Southern California. While there, Kevin assisted in the development and investment management of over $175 million in investment assets. Knowing that today’s consumers deserve more than just a salesman approach to managing individual assets, Kevin decided to open his own investment management firm, APS Investment Management Group, dedicated to assisting in the development of true independent financial plans.

Kevin has been in the financial services business for over 20 years. "I truly feel that today’s consumers deserve an honest, no pressure approach to financial planning." Kevin’s integrity and ability to develop sound investment strategies motivate him to instill hope in many new investors who were previously frustrated with the lack of attention and advice they had been given at other firms.

As a young man, Kevin purchased his first investment at the age of 14 and has been studying the stock market ever since! Kevin, his wife Michelle, and his adorable daughters Mackenzie, Macie, and Blakely reside in Plymouth, CA.
