Planning Specialties

The bulk of our time is spent managing money for our clients and helping them realize a secure retirement.  RIS' eight advisors have 140 combined years of experience and we manage roughly $1 billion dollars for over 1,100 clients, about half of whom work at the University of Michigan or Eastern Michigan. We are proactive managers, meaning we do not keep a static portfolio throughout the year.  We generally like to set a 30% stock exposure range with our clients, for instance a mimimum of 40% and a maximum of 70% and we then manage the portfolio within that range.  We believe their are times to grow a portfolio and times to protect it.  This approach has served our clients well during the market declines of 2002 and 2008 and we welcome the opportunity to share our track record with you.

    We see ourselves as a quarterback of family affairs, covering discussions of retirement distribution strategies, insurance and estate planning, long term care, and 529 plan college savings.
