Kerstin Brunner Financial Ambassador and Coach

Coming from abroad it could be difficult to clarify all your questions regarding insurances, finance and other topics which are automatically connected with your start in Germany. Comprehensive financial advice helps you to shape your future independently with an expert at your side. The holistic approach covers knowledge in areas such as insurances, investments, banking, retirement planning, financing and puts all areas in context. Working hand in hand with a financial expert gives you more confidence to make financial decisions on your own, and more time for things you really like.

“A very good professional education is the foundation of my work,” says Kerstin Brunner. “My heart’s desire is to work with people. Get to know them in their current life situation. And to develop concepts with them accordingly, so that they can achieve their goals and wishes. For me it is particularly interesting to work with people from different cultural backgrounds. From the beginning of my career as Financial Coach it was clear to me that we do have a very large gap in the area of ​​English services here in Germany. I am here to build a bridge to provide that possibility.”
