Financial Adviser, Urban Wealth Management

Derenda King is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional and financial adviser with Urban Wealth Management LLC. Prior to becoming an adviser, Derenda worked in higher education and held various positions at local colleges and universities in Southern California. She never thought she would leave a career in higher education, especially after earning her doctorate. However, 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. 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.
