Forbes Ranks Kathy Nolan as a Top Financial Security Professional

At a time when wealth planning and preservation are essential, Family Focus Financial Group President and Co-Founder Kathy Nolan is more dedicated than ever to helping her clients find the financial confidence they deserve.

In July 2023, Kathy was recognized as a Top Financial Security Professional by Forbes and SHOOK Research. She was ranked No. 32 out of over 1,000 Top Financial Security Professionals.*

*Forbes Top Financial Security Professionals 2023 is a ranking of financial professionals conducted by Forbes through the SHOOK evaluation process. To be considered by Forbes, Kathy Nolan was nominated by an insurance carrier she sells annuities through. Financial Security Professional (FSP) refers to professionals who are properly licensed to sell life insurance and annuities. FSP may also hold other credentials and licenses which would allow them to offer investments and securities products through those licenses. References to security refer only to the benefits of insurance products, not to investments. Insurance products are backed by the financial strength and claims paying ability of the issuing carrier.
