Financial Adviser, Urban Wealth Management

Derenda King is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, Certified Student Loan Professional (CSLP®) and financial adviser with Urban Wealth Management LLC. Prior to becoming an adviser, Derenda worked in higher education in Southern California. Her interest in the financial services industry began in 2007 with unexpected family tragedies that got her thinking about her own life and mortality as a single woman. Like many professional women, she realized that she lacked the financial knowledge and confidence to grow and protect her wealth. So began her quest to learn everything she could to improve her own personal finances. Over the years, her passion for the financial services industry grew.

Derenda now provides investment management and comprehensive financial planning, with an added focus on late-stage college planning services to her clients. She is also the owner of Collegiate Financial Coach, LLC, which provides financial coaching to families with college-bound students who need assistance with developing a college funding plan and to individuals seeking strategies for repaying their student loan debt. An educator at heart, she is passionate about empowering and equipping individuals, particularly single women and educators, with the knowledge to make more informed decisions about their money.
