    Working With You

    Working With You

    We believe the best relationships are built on trust, understanding and shared values. We also believe a disciplined philosophy and process are critical to achieving your investment goals in today’s market environment. To that end, we are committed to the following core values that serve as the foundation of our practice:

    Enduring Relationships. We are dedicated to building long-lasting relationships, based on trust and integrity. We do this by working with a select group of clients. This enables us to dedicate the time, attention and focus each deserves. We guide them through each challenge by maintaining this close relationship, and by providing the experience, solutions and strategies to keep them on course.

    Total Balance Sheet Management. We are committed to acting as your lead advisor for all your financial needs. Our process begins with comprehensive financial planning to understand your goals, dreams and concerns. Whether you need assistance with growth, asset protection or income planning, we hope to be your first phone call for any decision.

    Highly Personalized Service. We believe we can earn your trust not only through the quality of investment solutions we present, but also through the personalized approach with which we deliver them. Our ultimate goal is to empower you to spend more time doing those things that matter most to you, knowing we are working hard to help ensure your continued prosperity.

    Our Clients


    Over the years, we have developed a strong and active practice that includes a broad range of clients. Essentially, all either have accumulated significant assets or have significant income, yet need help in developing a plan to:

         Approach a major life-changing event with confidence, such as the transition to retirement, the loss of a spouse or the sale of a business

         Finance a major acquisition, including the purchase of a new property or expansion of a business

         Serve future generations and leave a lasting legacy

    Our clients include:

         Multi-generational private wealth families

         Corporate executives

         Medical and legal professionals

         Business owners and entrepreneurs

         Professional athletes with a focus on NHL players

    While each client has a unique personal and professional situation, they all have one thing in common: they are focused on achieving very specific financial goals, so they can focus on the areas of their lives that bring them joy, meaning and purpose.

    Community Involvement

    Community Involvement

    Michael and Keri’s passion for helping clients is equaled only by their dedication to family and our local communities.

    Michael and his wife live in Shorewood with their three children. He volunteers with the Foundation for Fighting Blindness and the Children’s Cancer Research Fund and was a member of the 2014-2015 Capital Campaign Committee for the St. David Center for Child and Family Development in Minnetonka. He is also a member of Olympic Hills Golf Club. When Michael is not working directly with his clients or guiding the organizations he supports, you can find him spending quality time with family and friends, coaching hockey and training for fitness challenges.

    Originally from Mabel, a small farming community in southeastern Minnesota, Keri and her husband currently reside in Excelsior with their three sons. A strong believer in giving back to her community, both local and abroad, Keri is active in many organizations, a few of which include Hope Academy in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis, Feed My Starving Children, World Vision, Cru, and her local church. Keri is also passionate about empowering women to achieve balance as working mothers. She leads multiple groups of professional women, inspiring them to develop the skills, resources and confidence to balance career and family. When she’s not working with clients or guiding the many organizations she supports, you can find Keri enjoying being a wife and mom. In her free time, she loves to camp, write and travel.
