Deborah Kirste, CFA

LPL Financial Consultant

CA Insurance Lic. #0G69149

Deborah Kirste became a financial consultant in 1997, after being inspired by a finance professor while studying for her MBA. Prior to that, she was a systems and software engineer in the aerospace industry. She received her Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation in 2002 and enjoys using her analytical skills to develop portfolio strategies designed to work toward meeting the individual needs of her clients.

Deborah’s primary objective is to help her clients pursue their financial and personal goals through education, wise decision making, and attention to overall portfolio risk, expenses and taxes. She says, “Determining an appropriate asset allocation based on clients’ investment objectives and risk tolerance is the key to ensuring they are on track with their long term goals. To that end, a top priority is placed on working toward managing downside risk.”

After working for a large mutual fund company and a boutique Registered Investment Advisor, Deborah became part of the UNIFY Investments & Insurance team because it combines the strength of a large institution with the personal level of service typically offered only by smaller companies.

Deborah has been married for over twenty-eight years and has two children in college. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, traveling, volunteering, and attending Crimson Tide football games. She was born and raised in California and resides in Laguna Niguel.
