There is a strategic uniqueness to how our firm is structured: we are the ideal size to stay true to our Michigan roots, yet we offer the perspectives, insights and products one would expect from a global financial institution.

Our move to independence allows this combination to flourish in ways that redefine our business and your expectations from a wealth management firm. We have sought to align ourselves with top financial services providers across a range of disciplines, and to give you access to not only the very best of Wall Street, but also the world. Some of our strategic partnerships include:

Charles Schwab

logo-charles-schwabCharles Schwab will serve as the custodian of your assets at our firm. Schwab boasts over $2 trillion in client assets, with approximately half of those assets held at professional wealth management firms like ours. They do no proprietary trading of their own capital, do not leverage their own balance sheet and maintain extremely low debt levels.

Since their founding in 1999, Envestnet’s mission has been to transform wealth management for both investors and their advisors, providing institutional-level research tools, investment products, advisory resources and portfolio management.
