49 Financial Expands to Kansas City!

We’re thrilled to announce that 49 Financial is setting up roots in a brand new location – Kansas City, Kansas! By the end of May, we’ll be opening our doors and eager to serve a whole new community.

This expansion is fueled by our passion to reach more clients and empower the next generation of financial advisors in the Midwest. Kansas City offers a vibrant and dynamic environment, and we see it as the perfect place to cultivate our mission.

Leading the charge is our dedicated Kansas City Launch Team:

  • Tim Rodgers: Market Vice President of Northwest Arkansas, bringing his extensive experience to guide our growth as he mentors the team on the ground in Kansas.
  • Luke Heiligenthal: Associate Team Lead, driven to serve families and build relationships as he leads the Kansas team to do the same.
  • Jace Engel: Financial Associate, passionate about expanding 49 Financial’s reach throughout the Midwest while supporting the development of the Kansas team.

When we asked Tim what makes this 49 Kansas team special, he replied, “With experience in launching three offices during my career at 49, I am uncertain if I have ever encountered a more cohesive and motivated team that is ready to roll up their sleeves and start working than now.” The Kansas team already has more incoming advisors scheduled to start this summer, and we don’t see the momentum stopping!

As we talked with Luke about what he was most excited about with the office launch, he said, “I’m excited for the young professionals that have raised their hands and said, ‘I know this is going to be a challenge, but it’s a worthwhile one.’. . . It is unbelievable what is possible when you get ambitious and values-aligned people together and aligned on a mission.”

Jace echoes Luke’s sentiment: “Since joining the 49 Financial team, I’ve been passionate about the company continuing to grow, succeed, and serve clients through the Midwest. Being part of the office launch in Kansas City is incredibly exciting because I get to play a role in that growth.”

Before the official launch, our Northwest Arkansas office came together with our future Kansas City office to meet with our Founder & CEO, Travis Penfield, for a day of vision building before the official launch. It was an incredible time to prepare for the exciting future of our newest 49 office.

Stay tuned for more updates as we gear up for our Kansas City launch! We’re excited to embark on this new chapter and empower a new generation of financial advisors while serving the Kansas City community.
