The financial planning process takes a commitment from both the client and the advisor. We create this planning process around you and your needs. We strive to find out what makes you tick, your goals and priorities, and like a loyal companion, we are there to help you implement your plan, together.

a fiercely independent advisor

We don’t sell insurance. We don’t have our own proprietary funds. We receive no hidden commissions or kick-backs. We analyze your situation and recommend the best solutions that are in your best interest, not ours.

a different breed of financial advisor™

My name is Erik O. Klumpp. I’m a Certified Financial Planner™  and Enrolled Agent who founded Chessie Advisors to provide affordable, independent financial planning, retirement planning,  and investment management guidance to teachers, engineers, attorneys, young professionals, and widows in their 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s.

Our goal is be different than the other financial advisors you may have used in the past, by acting more as a guide, taking a more proactive approach toward your finances, and not being driven by product sales.  We believe that helping you succeed financially will ultimately help us succeed. Like a cherished family dog, we want to be your financial companion, someone you can count on through thick or thin, someone you know you can reach out to whenever you have a question, an advisor you can trust to take care of your family if something happens to you.

We work with individuals and families throughout the Metro Detroit area, throughout Michigan, and virtually throughout the United States from our location in Rochester Hills, Michigan.

We welcome the opportunity to learn more about you, your family, your “American Dream”, and to explore our services with you.

Best regards,
