This is one that you won't want to miss! Our keynote speaker is Chris Costello, CEO & Co-Founder of blooom.
blooom (yes, we left off the capital "b" and put in the extra "o" on purpose) is one of the nation's fastest growing robo-advisors and just passed 1 billion dollars in assets under management. Chris and his company are often in the news, and are based right here in Leawood in Park Place.
