Financial Advisers

Ronald J. Van Surksum, CFP®
Certified Financial Planner™ Professional


My role at AAM – in addition to meeting with clients – is to analyze a client’s personal situation and create individualized financial plans and investment plans.

Essentially I create a “blue print” for my clients based on where they are today and then tell them what they need to do to reach their goals.

I enjoy working with experienced investors as well as “start-up” investors who are just beginning to work their way toward financial independence.

In addition to being the financial adviser, I spend a large portion of my time monitoring client investments and making sure investment dollars are adequately diversified.

(Ron is located on the South and West side of Grand Rapids)
