He joined American Century Investments in 1996 after serving as vice president and director of research at DeMarche Associates, Inc., a national pension consulting firm based in Overland Park, Kansas, according to a release.
ETF Portfolio Solutions, also headquartered in Overland Park, is a fee-based registered investment adviser (RIA) specializing in the portfolio management of ETFs. Founded in 2004 by Richard D. Romey, the company serves individual and institutional investors by designing, implementing, and maintaining equity, fixed income, and alternative investment portfolios.
“ETFs are the most important financial innovation of the last 30 years and will continue to revolutionize and transform the investment industry,” said Koehler. “I have followed the progress of the ETF industry closely over my career, and I am convinced ETFs will continue to benefit investors tremendously. I’m also excited to be making an equity investment in the firm and serving with Rich Romey and the ETF Portfolio Solutions team as stewards for current and future clients.”
