Celebrating Our 1st Year!

W. Kirk Taylor, CFP®

In March of 2021, and after more than three decades of advising individual investors, I founded Kirk Capital Advisors, LLC with the goal of delivering investment and financial planning advice that is 100% conflict-free, 100% transparent and 100% personal.

During the past year, our commitment to excellence and our desire to provide our clients with a remarkable experience that is unique and personal to them, was recognized by our peers as KIRK made:


  • The Top Financial Professionals list for 2021; Northern Virginia magazine


  • The Best in Wealth Management list for 2022; Washingtonian magazine


In addition, in January of this year and after six years of service as an FPA board member, I began my tenure as the 2022 President for the Financial Planning Association (FPA) of the National Capital Area (NCA). FPA NCA serves the DC Metro area and is one of the largest FPA Chapters in the country. It’s a privilege to lead our Chapter and it’s an honor to give back to a profession that has served me and my family since 1988.

As I reflect on the past year, I am thankful to have such a dedicated team by my side and I am especially grateful for the trust and confidence that our clients continue to place in us and in our abilities.


With warm regard,

W. Kirk Taylor, CFP®
