We take great pride in what we do and fully appreciate the process of helping our clients pursue and maintain financial security. We have four business units onsite that operate together as a “One Stop Shop” to take of your investment planning, tax planning, estate planning, health insurance planning, college planning, and retirement income planning.

The Summit Process.
A comprehensive planning process is crucial for creating a financial plan that considers your needs now, and that plans for the future in the most tax efficient manner possible. It is our goal to assist you in building a strong financial structure that will stand the test of time and grow with you and your family.
We are an independent, private, family owned investment firm and customer service is our #1 priority.
Our focus is on what is best for our clients, not what is best for our commissions. A lot of people don’t realize how much discretion investment advisers have when it comes to their commission. No member of our team has ever had a mediation, arbitration, or lawsuit with the Securities and Exchange Commission, FINRA, the State of Michigan, or any broker dealer.
We are a Registered Investment Advisory Firm in the State of Michigan. We have a fiduciary responsibility for our clients and are required by law to do what is in their best interest.
We prepare a complete Financial Plan for our clients. We put ourselves in our client’s shoes before we make any recommendations.
Over 33 years, our number one source of new clients is “word of mouth” referrals.
