Kevin T. Taylor, CIMA®, AIF®,

Managing Partner - Head of Business Development

Kevin is a passionate husband and father. Like most Coloradans, he is energetic about the outdoors and loves hiking the front range, camping, and skiing. He could easily be found jeeping the backcountry or taking the kids to mountain rental for the weekend with his wife Susan. When at work, however, he oversees InSight’s business development efforts and client acquisition. He was raised in Longmont, Colorado went to Longmont High School, and spent most of his youth performing on stage, or competing in speech and debate. He earned his Bachelors in Political Science and International Relations from Carroll College in 2003. He spent the following decade assisting Fortune 500 insurance companies with their go-to-market and client engagement infrastructure. Then, in 2014 began working as a Financial Advisor for a Registered Investment Advisor and have been managing clients and their money ever since. He earned his Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF®) in 2019, after recognizing the long-term value and success inherent in documenting the Fiduciary process and coaching clients on their responsibilities when managing investments on behalf of others. As a result, Kevin specializes in corporate plan development, fiduciary process management, and client engagement for our corporate retirement plans. He earned his CIMA® designation in 2021 after studying with the Yale School of Management. Disciplined in crafting and understanding risk, reward, and investment behavior Kevin is a consummate investment professional thrilled by the idea of capital markets and their potential. His quotes and ideas have been featured in U.S. News and World Report, Yahoo! Finance, Colorado Parenting, and the Denver Post. Kevin decided to start InSight with his co-founder after spending several years helping clients uncover where returns really came from in their portfolio, and what they can focus on to move the needle.
