OUR TEAM

Keith Guther, ChFC, AAMS
LPL Registered Principal, Chief Executive Officer

With over 20 years of experience providing financial services, Keith brings his clients a high level of expertise.  His designation as a Chartered Financial Consultant marks him as one of the most highly trained investment professionals in the field.  His expertise combined with his genuine desire to help others and his commitment to service, leads to the high-level satisfaction that his clients experience.

In the early 1990s, Keith became increasingly interested in the world of finance, seeing the importance of wise financial planning.  He learned that he had a penchant for understanding complex situations, a capacity for remembering detailed information, and a talent for explaining things clearly to others.  He decided to combine these abilities with his interest in finance and his desire to help others by becoming a financial advisor.

Keith began working with Sirak Financial Services in Canton, OH, in 1993, building a group of clients who appreciated his very personal and thorough approach to the planning process.  Many of those clients are still with him today.  Having already completed college and graduate school, Keith began rigorous study of advanced financial planning, tax law, and estate planning and was awarded the designation of Chartered Financial Consultant by the American College in Bryn Mawr, PA, in 1999.  He was recruited that same year by Edward Jones to open an investment office in Prescott, Arizona.  In Prescott, Keith’s client load grew rapidly and Edward Jones presented him with their Winners Circle Award in 2000, Pacesetter Award in 2001, and Century Award in 2003.*
Keith and his wife Barbara and their two sons, Troy and Jordan, settled on a small ranch in Dewey.  The business venture was going so well that they felt able to pursue another goal important to them – expanding their family, this time by adoption. In April 2003, they traveled to Russia to bring home their son Benjamin Viktor, age 9, and Natasha Nicole, age 6.  Integrating two orphaned children into their family has been a very rewarding adventure.

A year later, in 2004, Keith made the decision to take his office independent, establishing Guther Financial LLC at its current location at 2801 Willow Creek Road in Prescott.  In that year, he was certified as a registered principal with LPL Financial, qualifying him to manage a local office and supervise other investment advisors.  The decision to become an independent advisor allows him to offer a wider range of financial options to his clients with no pressure to sell proprietary products or conform to company incentives.

Besides discussing business, Keith and his clients often trade stories of family life, both challenges and accomplishments, and he has been privileged to work with multiple generations of many families as his clients trust him to work with their children, and with their elderly parents.   Keith has enjoyed getting to know the families of his clients and they, over the years, have watched his children grow and mature into the fine young adults they are today.  Now he has the added pleasure of spending time with two beautiful granddaughters.

Keith and his wife Barbara share in the desire to have a positive impact on the world around them.  They have both served on the West Yavapai Committee for Young Life and have enjoyed teaching church Sunday School classes.  They are also enthusiastic about supporting two children through child sponsorship with World Vision – a boy in Ecuador and a young girl in Africa.   Keith has coached church softball and enjoys playing basketball and other games with his children.  He and Barbara love to hit the trails in Arizona on their bicycles and ATVs.  They also enjoy attending and supporting fine arts activities in Prescott.

*Winners Circle Award – based on outstanding sales and service.  Pacesetter Award – recognizes financial advisors who achieve high levels of success early in their careers.  Century Award – outstanding performance during 2003.
