Ready for whatever life brings.

Being a financial advisor helped Chris ensure his family would be cared for after his cancer diagnosis, which enabled him to focus on his health and recovery. Today, he’s created a comprehensive financial planning program at Bankoh Investment Services that helps families across the islands get the same peace of mind. Below, learn about what Chris says are the most important—and most forgotten–parts of a financial plan.

Comprehensive Insurance

The right insurance coverage can ensure your family, assets, and future are protected—whatever life may bring.

Diversified Investments

The right investment strategy is the one that helps you meet your financial goals and has a risk tolerance that helps you sleep better at night.

Perspectives from the Dojo

Coming back to karate enabled Chris to stay grounded during his battle with cancer and now helps him connect with his daughter in new ways. Learn more about Chris and how he uses karate to keep him focused on the future.
