Our firm was established in 1986 as a sole-proprietorship under the name Greg Miyashiro, CFP®. The vision was to provide a refreshing and better alternative to individuals and families of Hawaii from the product-centered approach so prevalent in the financial services industry. Much of the financial planning firms at the time were catered to the ultra wealthy and Greg wanted to provide those sophisticated financial planning strategies to others who were often overlooked. In 2007, our firm's name and entity type was changed to Kahala Financial Advisors, LLC to reflect our commitment to providing continuity to our clients for generations to come.
Kahala Financial Advisors, LLC is registered as an investment advisor with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC).
