As a young man, Akil found out how important financial planning is to a family. His mother died unexpectedly at the young age of 47. As you might imagine, it was difficult for he and his brother to grasp that their mother was no longer with them. Equally as difficult, they learned that their mother had not prepared for her children's future.
In 2005, shortly after their Mother died, Akil started his financial services career as a Credit Manager at Wells Fargo. He focused on ways to help clients by finding solutions for them to pay off debt more efficiently. He viewed himself as a "financial organizer" to help clients and their families put themselves in a better financial position.
In 2009, Akil established a property and casualty practice helping clients protect their personal and business property and find solutions for their life and disability insurance needs.
In 2015, after a brief time with Principal Financial Group, Akil partnered with Paula Anderson Harris, LUTCF, FSS, LACP and Carol A. Anderson, LUTCF CFP® to better define the practice working with teachers and business owners primarily focusing on wealth management, tax strategies, and insurance planning. In 2018, Harris AND Davis Financial Advisors was formed.
Akil holds the Series 6, 63, 65 and 7 registrations. His goal is to be the best asset possible to his clients, continuing to better himself and provide an exceptional experience. Akil is a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) and has recently earned the designation of Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®) from the American College of Financial Services.
At the University of Nebraska at Kearney, Akil was an accomplished linebacker and one of the youngest captains in the history of the University. He graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Telecommunications.
Akil spends his free time with his wife, Jamie, their 3 children; Kendyl, Tatum and Emmitt and enjoys coaching their sports activities. Additionally, he enjoys skiing, going to Husker games and cheering on the Chicago Bears. He is also very passionate about his faith and giving back to the community.
