”I place a special emphasis on educating my clients and making sure they are comfortable with the strategies presented. I like each individual to know exactly what they own and why they own it.”
Steve Hendrickson was born and raised in the Grand Rapids area where he has enjoyed many years of solid friendships and business associations. Steve first worked for First Michigan Bank (FMB) in Grand Rapids. He joined Centennial in 1998 and became licensed as a financial advisor.
Having been raised in the area, Steve attended Wyoming Rogers High School and then Hope College, where he played basketball. At Hope, he focused on finance and began working in the brokerage industry while still in school. Upon graduation, he received a bachelor’s degree in accounting.
Steve specializes in developing investment programs that help individuals and businesses achieve their financial goals. As a financial advisor, he handles almost all types of investments. Depending on an individual’s personal situation, he will provide advice on retirement strategies such as IRAs, Roth IRAs, 401(k)s, and SEP/IRAs. For situations outside of retirement, he provides direction on several specialized programs. An example is in the area of college savings: he will help young parents develop portfolios using tax-advantaged vehicles like the 529 plan, Coverdell Education Savings Account, and UGMA/UTMA custodial accounts.
Steve’s focus is to provide sound investment advice and the highest level of customized service to help his clients achieve their investment and personal goals. His first step is sitting down with his clients and identifying their short and long-term objectives. Then, he develops a complete financial plan using investments which are appropriate for each individual involved.
Steve and his wife, Angie, live in Wyoming with their two sons, Alexander and Quinton, who are both active in sports. Additionally, his hobbies include enjoying basketball and golf, coaching his sons’ sports teams and officiating football at both the high school and collegiate level.
