family money matters elaine king aboutme sobre mi


I was born in the beautiful country of Peru during the longest economic and political volatile period; record high inflation rates, terrorism and national curfews . Lived, studied and worked in Canada, Mexico, Austria, Japan, and throughout the United States. Learned to love culture, to appreciate diversity and six different languages.

At 17 years old, I left home, travelled overseas with a luggage and my golf clubs, and survived New York City upon graduating from college in 3 years. For over 18 years, I was fortunate to go up the corporate ladder of the largest and most powerful financial institutions of the world, advising international families with actionable strategies to a healthy financial plan, structure and governance. And during this time created my foundation.

Whether you are looking to organize and plan your finances, put together a family focused educational workshop or just align your asset allocation to your values, our talented team can help you.

I would love to have the opportunity to hear your story and plan together with you and your family,

In 2017, I was named one of the 25 Most Powerful Women in America by People en Español. I have dedicated my life to improving the finances of all the people I come in contact with. As a writer and motivational speaker, I travel the world promoting the financial education of families. I'm a mediator of the Florida Supreme Court and a certified Family Business Consultant by the Family Firm Institute.


I have lectured in countries such as Austria, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Japan, Mexico, Panama, Peru, and United States, among others. I'm frequently invited to be the keynote speaker in various events. My workshops are filled with practical financial strategies for the entire family. I offer tools and financial planning strategies for companies with thousands of employees.


I'm the author of six books, including Family and Money, Made Easy, winner of the Best Latino Award (Penguin Random House 2013) and Saltarín y las 4 palabras clave para una familia unida (Santillana 2014), the first book to teach children about the value of financial planning. I'm also a regular columnist of economic journals in Peru, Colombia, and the United States. I have been invited to major worldwide media outlets such as CNN, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal.


I'm the founder of the Family and Money Matters™ institute, a pioneer organization that offers educational programs to Latin American families. As a Certified Financial Planner™, I'm the ambassador of the Nexus and CFP® Board in Washington D.C., promoting financial culture.
