Kyle Kootstra, CFA

Portfolio Manager

I have been an Investment Advisor in the Windsor area for more than 15 years. In an effort to further my ability to provide wealth management services, I completed the Chartered Financial Analyst designation in 2014. My focus has long been centered around building trusting long-term relationships with my clients. To accomplish this, I strive to take the time to understand both them and their financial needs prior to proposing solutions. As a team, Ana, Alec and I seek to enable our clients to arrange their financial affairs in such a way that they can feel at ease and able to do the things they most want to do, when they want to do them.

I live in Windsor along with my wife, Kara, and our two children, Nate and Claire. Claire is often busy with dance-related activities while Nate is focused on training at the gymnastics club, engaging in computer coding projects, and studying the violin. As a family we enjoy traveling, playing games, and watching movies together.

Ana Kleer, CIM®

Portfolio Manager

I have been working in the financial services industry since 2006, with a focus on fostering strong relationships and helping families achieve their personal and financial goals.

My significant personal experience with Investment and Wealth Plans allows me to help individuals and families balance life events with financial considerations. To do so, I first seek to understand your current financial situation and then move to identifying potential issues and gaps that could create a risk for you and your family. Once that foundational work has been completed, I recommend tailored strategies and solutions to meet your needs.

I’ve been married to my husband Remco for 22 years and we have two children, Laura and Alexander. We live in Cottam and we enjoy traveling around the world, exploring new cultures and cuisines.

I would be pleased to assist you in English, Portuguese, Dutch or Spanish.
