Our Difference

Money is only important to the extent that it allows you to do those things that are important to you.

Who We Work With

We primarily work with business families (active or retired), professionals, and retirees. We specialize in helping people who are going through a life transition whether that is a business succession/sale, retirement, the passing of a loved one, separation, or other events that may occur. We work with individuals and families who have $1 million or more in investable assets or are willing to pay the costs associated for our services.

Who We Are

CI Assante Wealth Management

We help our clients live a full life by building a comprehensive wealth plan rooted in evidence-based investment research, accompanied by deep caring and commitment on what is important to our clients.

Our advisory group consists of Chad Butnari, Chris Horn, and Mike Andrews. We are supported by a team of multi-disciplined professionals both internally and externally who share our core values that embrace thoroughness, collaboration, and client care.

From a single individual in 1987 to a thriving, multi-faceted team, The Andrews Group has succeeded based on our desire to consistently innovate, be proactive and be a leader in the industry, a champion for our clients and always provide exemplary advice. We want to make a difference in our client’s lives, freeing their time through our comprehensive wealth planning services to allow them to do what they enjoy. We are always looking ahead so our clients can enjoy the present and be better prepared for the future.

We free our clients time to do the things they enjoy, we protect them from potential dangers, we guide them through complexities, and we provide clarity of the present, a road map for the future, and advice that touches every aspect of their life.

Wealth planning is not an event, but an ongoing process, integrating all aspects of your wealth including money and family dynamics.

Are all aspects of your wealth represented in your current plan?
You have worked hard for your assets. We will work just as hard to structure your wealth so your goals are achieved and executed in the most tax efficient, harmonious way possible.

Do you have a plan in place for your passing?
Our clients are passionate about helping family, friends, and their communities. Any planned charitable giving must fit into your financial and personal goals.

How can you best use your money to make a difference in the lives of others?

Areas of vulnerability can have an adverse effect on your financial security, and insurance can be a component of risk management. Our belief is that insurance with a purpose is a strategy. Without a real purpose, insurance is a product that is sold. We always discover the purpose within the bigger wealth plan.

Insurance products and services are provided through Assante Estate and Insurance Services Inc.

Is your family or business going to be protected in the event of an unforeseen tragedy?

The decision to sell a business – whether to family members or not, is a pivotal moment in an entrepreneur’s life. Expertise and planning is required to establish a value while minimizing taxes and reducing the risk of any negative feelings between family members.

Are you prepared for any issues that might arise on the sale of your business?
Peace of mind and knowing your wealth will last your lifetime and beyond is a priority for our clients. We work to determine precisely what your lifestyle needs are, while you only have to focus on what’s important to you.

Do you know what your current lifestyle costs are today? How much money will you need for your retirement goals?
Our approach is based on evidence-based research, not marketing hype. We utilize institutional money managers known for their discipline, focus, and ethical standards, who have a consistent long term performance record.

Can you distinguish between a marketing pitch and an authentic investment strategy?
