About Nick

High levels of service and communication are a given with my clients. I pursue deep client understanding to make recommendations in your best interests. Timely, accurate communication is essential, as is the ability to explain complex investing vehicles in easy-to-understand language. The most important value to me is trust. It’s a responsibility I take very seriously.

Wealth management is a complex matter requiring independent and objective advice, as well as professional integrity. I like the quote from Zig Ziglar: “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help others get what they want”.

My job is active management – to plan for my client’s goals and consider their perspectives in working toward addressing those goals. With that comes monitoring their portfolio and making changes when markets change, or when a client’s objective or situation changes.

I enjoy creating investment portfolios specially tailored for specific situations and goals. Seeing a client’s long-term plan come together is one of my highest personal and professional rewards. I relish being their trusted advisor and the first call when in need of any type of financial advice.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, coaching basketball at East Grand Rapids Middle School, and fly fishing for trout.
