Kimura Meade Group

Kimura Meade Group

The Kimura Meade Group has over 75 years of collective experience partnering with and serving families and businesses in Hawaii. We truly understand the unique needs, preferences, and lifestyle goals that come with life in the Islands. Our deep investment knowledge enables us to offer tailored strategies, advice, and guidance typically reserved for the world’s largest institutions. Our core mission is to provide you with the resources and financial confidence that will enable you to spend more time pursuing what you enjoy the most.

Who We Work With

Women
As a woman of wealth, you are well aware of how inaccurate stereotypes about gender and money can be. Beyond some specific challenges—for example, planning for the statistical probability of outliving a spouse—managing your wealth means avoiding preconceived assumptions while gaining a full understanding of who you are as an investor and what you want to achieve for your career, your family and your legacy. The Kimura Meade Group works with a select group of individuals and families to help them pursue the goals that matter most to them. We strive to get to know our clients on a personal level so we can offer boutique-like services and the resources of a global firm to create strategies specifically for their life and needs.


Corporate Executives

We understand the complexities that come with your executive position and the extreme demands on your time. We can help you develop a customized strategy that your wealth and compensation require. We can help you manage the risk of your concentrated stock position while navigating complex SEC rules, trading restrictions and reporting requirements. If you’ve just been promoted and would like help evaluating your new compensation plan, or if you’re looking to develop a long-term financial strategy for you and your family – designed to enable you to live life as you want it, with reliable access to cash – we can help simplify your financial life, as well as develop new strategies as your career and goals evolve.


Company Founders, Private Business Owners & Entrepreneurs
When you have built your own business, your personal finances and the life of your company are closely intertwined. You may be thinking about how to invest in your company’s growth while also deciding how best to use your personal assets. Helping ensure the future of your business likely involves employee benefits, retirement plans and succession planning. Helping secure your family’s legacy could entail wealth transfer strategies, trusts and philanthropy. Whatever your specific needs, we at the Kimura Meade Group can help entrepreneurs and business owners balance their personal financial lives with their life’s work. We are dedicated in providing the experience and resources to help support your ongoing success.

Intergenerational Family Wealth
Managing your family’s wealth across multiple generations goes beyond protecting and preserving assets, tax minimization strategies and designating heirs. Your goals also likely include passing on values and helping the next generation become effective stewards of wealth. The Kimura Meade Group helps a select group of families with personalized wealth transfer strategies, family wealth education and developing and implementing philanthropic visions. In working with you to create strategies that reflect your family’s intentions and help ensure your assets are distributed according to your wishes, we proceed in a manner that recognizes the complexities of your life challenges and the unique nature of your goals. Our extensive experience working with other families of significant wealth enables us to see and share best practices to help you achieve them.

Philosophy

We live in a world that's constantly changing. Markets can fluctuate frequently. Potential investment opportunities can arise daily. Regulations are amended. That's why we believe that you and your situation are the best starting points from which to help plan your financial future: where you are today, where you want to be tomorrow, and what you want to accomplish along the way. Because by understanding you and your priorities, we can more effectively offer our experience and resources and help you build a financial framework that is rooted in the unique complexities of your life.

Approach

Wealth Management is a dynamic process. As we focus on you today and help you identify your goals for tomorrow, we can strive to work together throughout life’s ups, downs, triumphs, and transitions. Helping you pursue your goals starts with getting to know you and your family. Our job is to first understand what matters most to you. We will work together to create a financial approach that reflects your investment personality and is built around your life priorities. We will be here to help you make adjustments to your wealth management approach if and when necessary over time.

Capabilities

Our process is designed to help deliver a customized, consistent experience to assist clients not only in wealth accumulation and preservation, but in areas that go beyond investments. Our ability to provide access to the investment insights of Merrill, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank, and the banking convenience and lending solutions of Bank of America offers a way to help clients manage all of the pieces of their financial lives. We view ourselves as a financial resource, helping clients with potential solutions for transferring wealth to the younger generation.
