Practice Integration Advisor

Ned Kivett, CFP®

Ned has spent the last two decades providing his clients with strategies to successfully meet both their business and personal financial goals. In that time, he has gained extensive experience with pension and retirement planning, as well as dental practice transitions. As a practice integration advisor in Buckingham Strategic Wealth’s Indianapolis office, Ned leads client relationships and the development of tools and processes to better assist people in reaching financial freedom.

Personally, Ned gets great satisfaction from educating clients, both dentists and non-dentists, about the financial strategies that can make a real difference in their lives. That means tackling complex problems with creative solutions built around helping people, learning himself and then teaching others. He finds it extremely gratifying to see positive outcomes resulting from implementation of the strategies he recommends.

Ned has addressed a wide range of financial planning topics and transition strategies for dentists as a presenter at national dental forums, industry meetings and seminars.

He served as a senior planning consultant with Hufford Advisors until that firm joined Buckingham in 2014. Previously, Ned worked in management and product development for a multi-national medical device company, where he gained both domestic and international business experience.

Ned holds the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM designation. He earned his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Purdue University and a master’s degree from Purdue University’s Krannert School of Business.

Ned and his wife, Sandy, are the proud parents of three children and a growing number of grandchildren.
