D. Blanchett Don Duncan MBA, CFA, CFP, CPA - Managing Director, D3 Financial Counselors LLC
Early in Don Duncan's life he was involved in an automobile accident that severed his tongue. He spent many years in surgery and in speech therapy striving to overcome this obstacle so it would not become a handicap. Duncan uses his long term persistence and dedication of purpose, to help clients overcome obstacles and achieve their life time goals. After a successful career at Northern Trust Company, Duncan took his experience and started D3 Financial Counselors (D3) in 1997. The reason for the career change was so he could work with individuals rather than institutions. The singular focus of D3 is to help people achieve their goals through financial planning, risk-controlled investment management and tax wealth management. During his 16+ years with Northern Trust, Duncan managed over $8 billion in various portfolios and served as a member of the division's risk management team. Duncan is focused on being educated so that he can bring the best ideas to help clients achieve their goals. To this end, Duncan received his Certified Public Accountant designation in 1985, earned a Masters of Business Administration from DePaul University in 1987 and became a Chartered Financial Analyst in 1992. In 1997, he earned the Certified Specialist in Estate Planning designation and, in 2000, he became a licensed CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™. Each year Duncan earns at least 30 hours of continuing education credits, to stay current with financial planning topics, taxes and investments. With his strong convictions about education, Duncan taught Financial Planning at DePaul University and Portfolio Management at Lewis University. Utilizing Duncan's teaching and public speaking experience, D3 Financial Counselors also conducts customized seminars to business employees and association groups. Duncan also was past Chairman of the Illinois Financial Planning Association, served on the NAPFA Midwest Board as well as having served as Chairman of the Downers Grove Chamber of Commerce. Duncan lives in Downers Grove with his wife Cindi and their children. He is an active member of the community and any endeavor he gets involved with. Duncan is focused on personal improvement by interacting with people, reading, and living new experiences. Recreationally, Duncan enjoys outdoor activities like backpacking, fishing, hiking, bike riding and travelling to new places.

Money Smart Week:
Money Smart Week® is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. This is achieved through the collaboration and coordinated effort of hundreds of organizations across the country including businesses, financial institutions, schools, libraries, not-for-profits, government agencies and the media. These groups come together once a year to stress the importance of financial literacy, inform consumers about where they can get help and provide free educational seminars and activities throughout the week. Programming is offered to all demographics and income levels and covers all facets of personal finance from establishing a budget to first time home buying to estate planning. The effort was created by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in 2002. Partnering Organizations will host their events April 5 - 12, 2014.
