Grand Rapids, MI, January 22, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Asa Lakeman, Financial Advisor at VantagePointe Financial Group was recently named Investment Sales Leader for the second consecutive year. "Due to Asa’s education, hard work, and client focus I am pleased to announce Asa Lakeman as our 2010 Investment Sales Leader," Managing Partner David Pasciak recently remarked at the VPFG annual agency awards banquet.
VantagePointe Financial Group, a member of John Hancock Financial Network, has been helping individuals, families and businesses work towards their financial goals for over 30 years. VPFG is a fast growing firm with over 60+ experienced professionals and 8 offices throughout Michigan.
"The reason for the continued current & new client growth during a particularly volatile market is the client centered focus that I have and maintain with clients," Lakeman said. "Now more than ever, it's important for people to get independent, objective advice, and through VPFG’s open architecture platform I am able to listen to the client for what their goals are and then run a financial analysis to find the best strategies and products to help them achieve their goals," Lakeman said.
While the increase in business came from a broad specter of families and professionals, Lakeman noted a growing number of medical professionals and business owners are drawn to working with him. "We all lead busy lives. People appreciate that when they work with me they have more time to do the things they’d like to and have peace of mind that their financial house is in order," explained Lakeman. "While in the past, many people have tried to go it alone on their financial future, by focusing on the client and having the freedom of an independent firm to find the best solution possible I believe I’ve helped people to enjoy healthier and wealthier lives."
