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.
