FORBES TOP-RANKED TEAM

People deserve to understand what’s happening with their money.

Have you ever sat across from a financial advisor and only understood every third word they were saying? And yet they were talking about your money, your life and your future.

At Gertsema Wealth Advisors, we believe clients should understand everything that is happening with their money; that advisors should be just as good about explaining investments as they are at making them.

First, we’re going to get to know you and discuss what’s most important to you. We’re going to figure out your goals and the outcomes you’d like to achieve with this money. We’ll do this by establishing your Family Index Number, which is the rate of return needed on your investments in order to pursue those outcomes. After we determine your Family Index Number, we allocate your money to our various investment strategies designed to help you pursue those goals.

We work with a wide variety of clients – everyone from high net worth investors to those who are just starting out. While each family gets a personalized allocation strategy, we’ve helped thousands of families navigate their complex financial needs and guided them through life’s major decisions.

As your trusted advisor, we’re focused on adding convenience and simplicity to your lives. We will make sure you’re educated on your investments and how we manage your money – as much or as little information as you’d like.

Whether you’re investing hundreds or millions, at Gertsema Wealth Advisors we’re about much more than results – we’re about helping you understand where those results have come from and why the strategy works. If you’re tired of the mystery of investing and want to know exactly what’s happening with your money, schedule an appointment today.
