Mike has over twenty-five years of financial services industry experience. During that time, he worked for several investment firms, each taking a very different approach to delivering advice and service to investors. These included full service and discount brokerage, bank brokerage, and Registered Investment Advisory firms. This experience gave Mike a unique insight into the pros and cons of choosing an investment advisor in terms of advice and service quality, cost, and ultimately investor success and satisfaction. It became evident that the independent Registered Investment Advisor approach clearly put the investor first and was the model that Mike wanted to adopt. After working with Kory for several years and sharing his passion for the best investment approach and client service, Mike joined Kory in the establishment of Ascension Wealth Partners.
