Konni’s Story

Quest Royal North 081

I originally created KMH Unlimited LLC. in 2003.  It was created for one reason, to problem solve for my clients that did not involve the brokerage firm I was affiliated with, and yet, was investment related.
With hundreds of requests to provide  financial solutions over the years, KMH Unlimited LLC  has evolved…

This is my story.

Full disclosure; my father was a trader on the CBOE so I grew up around “the floor”.  I have a strong entrepreneurial spirit and have been a competitive “go getter” all my life.  I started riding horses at the age of 6 and competed at the top venues of the show jumping arena for well over a decade.  As a teen I owned and operated my own snow plowing business.  I graduated high school in 3 years and, from there, left home to become the assistant director of a children’s center at a world class ski resort.  Realizing I needed that piece of paper to further any career, I returned home to earn an honors degree in Marketing with a minor in Finance in only 3 years from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

In 1991 my mother passed away unexpectedly.  I left my marriage and Illinois to spend the next several decades traveling throughout the country exercising thoroughbred race horses as I was swept up into the upper echelon of the sport of kings!

In 1999 I joined forces with Oakbrook Investment Brokers Inc to obtain my securities licenses.  With that alliance my passion for clients and investments flourished!  Focusing on raw materials, I became an integral part in breaking escrow and growing what soon became the number one performing index fund in any asset class in the world; the Rogers Raw Materials Funds.  As an independent advisor, I continued traveling to exercise race horses in the early mornings and work with investments in the afternoon.  I became well versed in communication, marketing and PR.  I coordinated efforts with other brokerage firms, administrators and compliance.  I built solid relationships with clients from all walks of life, some of which I still work with today.

2001 brought down the twin towers to change the face of the financial world forever.  I felt a pull and ended up in Saratoga Springs, NY. to work with Morgan Stanley in Albany.  My time with Morgan Stanley was short lived and I rejoined OBIB.  Listening to client requests, I became dual registered with Euro Pacific Capital.  I was now part of the global stage and, literally, a whole world of investment opportunities was at my fingertips.

In 2007 everything that I had been working with seemed to come together.  I was recruited by a Canadian firm to launch another raw materials index fund in the US that was to be headquartered just outside of Chicago.  The second raw materials fund never did launch but I had the opportunity to work closely with my father every day, time I would not otherwise have had.  He lost his battle with cancer in 2011 and for the next 7 years I was back on the east coast; horses in the mornings, consulting in the afternoons.

It is now 2019 and I am back in the Chicago area.  The people and contacts, the unconventional investment opportunities, the pageantry of the sport of kings, the constant refining to interpret the financial language… I have been so Blessed!

By working with hundreds of requests to provide a variety of financial solutions, KMH Unlimited has been refined to combine my passion, connections and expertise to make that difference in your financial future.

Integrity – Strength and firmness of character or principle; honesty that can be trusted. A word I live by, every day, and always, with a smile on my face!
