Derek Hensley, CFP®, CKA®

Wealth Advisor

It’s important to be good stewards of what the Lord has provided us. Money can be complicated and complex, and it touches every area of our lives. There’s no decision that’s independent of your finances, and I’m driven to help people in this way. Working in financial planning is how I feel called to help positively impact lives.

As a Wealth Advisor, Derek serves clients with portfolio management, implementation, rebalancing and preparing for meetings. “I enjoy putting all the pieces of the puzzle together to serve our clients efficiently,” he says. “I like getting things done and working through all our tasks to make sure our clients are well taken care of.”

Before joining our team, Derek studied finance at Missouri State University and worked as a Fund Accountant at State Street Bank. Like all our wealth advisors, he holds the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER certification.

“From day one, I’ve always said that I’ve never had a bad day at work. We have busy days, but we don’t have bad days at Sound Stewardship. It really feels like a family here when you come to work each day. I feel really fortunate to be part of the culture here, working with the highest quality team of people. And because Sound Stewardship is Fee-Only, we can be totally transparent. I feel like that’s the best way to do business, and I can sleep well at night knowing wholeheartedly that we’ve done what is in our clients’ best interest.”

Derek and his wife Tracy live in Lee’s Summit with their two kids. They enjoy all the sports and BBQ Kansas City has to offer. On the weekends, they spend their time at church and with family & friends.
