Kristin Byrnes Portfolio Research Associate

Kristin Byrnes, Portfolio Research Associate, joined the Kelton Financial Group in early 2021. While Kristin is new to the KFG team, she has been a part of the Raymond James family since 2011. Her client-first approach and shared values in methodical decision-making and long-term planning make her a natural fit in her new role.

Prior to joining KFG, Kristin held several roles at Raymond James, including Senior Manager of the Investment Strategy team, where she provided coordinated macroeconomic, capital market, and asset allocation guidance to financial advisors and their clients. She joined RJ as a research analyst with a focus on strategic asset allocation analysis and investment product due diligence. She began her career as a portfolio analyst/manager with a registered investment advisor in Pittsford, New York.

While Kristin spent several years in the Tampa area, she is a Buffalo native who graduated from St. Bonaventure University with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance. She has since returned to New York where she lives with her son, Jameson, and cat, Ari. Aside from spending time with her son, she enjoys yoga, everything outdoors, baking sweets, and a good book.
