Colin Day, CFP®, MBA
Financial Advisor | Schedule an Appointment
Colin Day is a Financial Advisor that brings over a decade of experience in financial services to Correct Capital. To him, financial planning is more than just making sure you can retire one day: it’s the process of identifying your goals – both short-term and long-term – and taking advantage of every opportunity to meet them.
Colin works with individuals, families, as well as participants in our 401(k) plans to build holistic financial plans. For our 401(k) plan sponsors, Colin builds and adapts workplace retirement plans to meet the company’s objectives – whether it’s increasing participation, savings rates, or general financial literacy.
Colin is passionate about learning: he enjoys reading, how-to videos, and studying German. Early in the morning, you might find Colin running the sidewalks of Central County. When he gets a night off from Ryan (7) and Leyna (3), Colin enjoys going to local restaurants and breweries – indeed, Colin’s first job after relocating to St. Louis in 2011 was at a small brewery. Otherwise, Colin will be on his couch cheering on Ohio State and Cleveland sports teams.
Colin uses experience to develop income plans for soon-to-be retirees and those that are already in retirement. Colin received his bachelor’s degree from The Ohio State University and his MBA from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University.
