Delays meetings and is never available on call.
I hired Ken Schapiro last year but I didn’t think he would be a lazy crook. That guy is never available for meetings and whenever I would give him a call he either rejected it or let it go to the answering machine.
Ken is the president of Condor Capital. He also runs Backend Benchmarking with Courtside Racquet Club. I never found a helpful review about Ken or Condor Capital and I ended up wasting a lot of time and money on those guys. I wish my review will help some people in avoiding this terrible service provider.
Ken Schapiro always arrives late to meetings
It was really painful to work with Ken.
I am a busy man and I don’t like to waste my time. For our first meeting Ken didn’t show up instead I met his subordinates and colleagues. It’s felt a little disrespectful but I didn’t mind it that much. Another issue was when Ken had an appointment with me. He was supposed to meet me at my office but he arrived an hour late. I had waited for him for 30 minutes but when I realised he wasn’t coming I went away to meet someone else.

On another occasion, Ken showed up 45 minutes late to a meeting and started claiming that he had arrived on time. According to him, I was the one who arrived way too early and he knew the exact time of the meeting. I realised that moment what a big mistake I had made by hiring that lunatic.
After that I only met him once. I had gone to his office to meet him but he was not there. It felt very disrespectful because he had requested me for that meeting. So for him to be absent was really frustrating.
I waited in his office for an hour and then left because I realised he wouldn’t come.
Never Picks up the Phone
Now that I have discussed his attitude towards client meetings let me elaborate on his phone call ethics.
Ken Schapiro never picks up his calls. Whenever I called him I would never get to talk to the guy. I never understood why he did this but it was another painful and irritating thing. At first he would pick up my call on a whim but for some reason he got lazy and started avoiding phone calls.
So whenever I wanted to talk to my financial advisor I would have to set an appointment with him because he would never be available on call. And as I have already stated in my review Ken behaves terribly in meetings. So there was no way for me to avoid meeting him.

Moreover it feels really humiliating when you are paying someone to be your advisor but the person can’t even receive your calls. That is why I got rid of his services. I couldn’t tolerate this arrogant behaviour any further.
Ken Schapiro is the founder of Condor Capital and has the CFA certification, which stands for Chartered Financial Analyst. He founded Condor in 1988 and I believe due to his age or ego, he has degraded tremendously. Ken might’ve been a good service provider a few decades ago, but now, he is just a lazy and arrogant man who doesn’t like to talk on the phone. It’s really inconvenient to work with someone who doesn’t pick up your calls. I run multiple companies and don’t have the time to meet people everyday. I do most of my business through my phone so Ken’s tendency of avoiding phone calls was a huge pain.
Moreover, because Ken never showed up to meetings on time, I had to change my schedules multiple times. It’s very irritating to work with a lazy slob like Ken. I have met with some of his subordinates too because he prefers sending them at his place on first meetings. To be honest, I feel sorry for all those people who are still paying Ken for his services. I wish this review will open their eyes and alert anyone else looking for a finance advisor.
Ken Schapiro always comes late to meetings, doesn't answer his phone calls, and wastes your time. Not recommended.
- Always late
- Never picks up the phone
- Wastes time
I would like to take this opportunity to address and refute the claims made against me and my firm in this review. Each statement made here is wholly false.
As the president of Condor Capital Management, I take the treatment of my clients’ time and energy very seriously. I’m very aware of other obligations, busy schedules, and the sometimes urgent needs of my clients. Because of this, and because I know firsthand about having a calendar that fills quickly, I make it a point to never be late for any meeting, whether in my office or at another location. I do not disrespect my clients’ time.
Further, I have never nor will ever charge for a meeting. Condor Capital is a fee-only advisor; we bill on assets under management alone. Charging for meetings has never even been considered as a part of our business model. Our goal is to always have the best interest of our clients in mind, a goal I can proudly state that we regularly meet for any client, large or small. Charging for meetings, cancelling meetings, being late for meetings–it’s just not how I’ve ever run my business.
My staff and I pride ourselves on going above and beyond for our clients, and have over 700 who are pleased with our service and performance. The bulk of our business is built off of existing client referrals. Our clients speak highly of us to their family and friends. This confidence has led to consistent growth in the number of clients we serve, even in this tumultuous last year. I’ve also been named to Barron’s Top 1200 Advisors four times, a Forbes Best-In-State Advisor twice, as well as made Financial Advisor’s 2020 Annual RIA Ranking and investor.com’s Top 100 Advisors in the state of Colorado.
Nothing in this review accurately describes Condor Capital Management, nor does it accurately depict my practices as a financial advisor or business owner. The structure of our office means that any member of my team can help any client at any time, but I am always available and happy to serve their needs.
Ken Schapiro and Condor Capital are horrible. When I hired Condor Capital for wealth management last year, I faced a lot of problems because of their lazy correspondence. They would usually charge me for meetings which never took place and whenever my team would question their “vague” invoicing, they would make up some excuse and request payment. My company got rid of Condor Capital’s services because of this and I don’t think anyone else should waste their time with them too.
