Founder, The Kinder Institute of Life Planning
George Kinder is a Harvard educated economist, philosopher, financial planner, Buddhist teacher, and the founder of the Kinder Institute of Life Planning, a network of over three thousand financial advisers on six continents trained to inspire consumers to recognize and achieve their lives of greatest meaning.
The recipient of many financial industry awards including the first ever Heart of Financial Planning Distinguished Service Award from the 29,000 member Financial Planning Association, he was recently named the first of fifteen most transformational financial advisers whose vision most changed the financial planning industry.
His latest book, A Golden Civilization, combines his decades of financial leadership with his lifetime of mindfulness practice to create new principles of economics and pose the question: What would it take to create a civilization that thrives with freedom for a thousand generations?
At the core of his solution is transparency, not just in financial services but in every structure of society.
George’s expertise has been widely featured in the press across six continents including The New York Times, Forbes Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, Time Magazine, Fortune, NPR, and many others.
