Welcome to DEK Financial Solutions

Daniel King is a Phoenix, Arizona, independent fee-only financial planner.  DEK Financial Solutions  provides comprehensive financial planning with specialties in retirement planning and investment planning.  Our typical retirement planning client is within 5 to 10 years of retirement looking for validation to see if they are on track.  We also assist clients who are entering retirement with  specific drawdown, allocation and claiming strategies.  Our usual investment planning client has multiple accounts, complex tax situations and varied investment strategies.  Because the two areas are closely related, we commonly help clients  in both areas.
