Throughout his career, Mr. Kim has expanded his professional knowledge by completing a Series 6 license through the North American Securities Administrators Association and a Series 63 license through the National Association of Securities Dealers, pursuing coursework through Mastercard International, and becoming a broker through the California Department of Real Estate.
