Aaron Andreas and Beth Zilka are the founding members and Managing Directors of Baron Wealth Management, LLC, a Registered Investment Advisor located in metropolitan Detroit. We are proud to provide unbiased financial advice to clients located in Michigan and throughout the US.
As the founders of Baron Wealth Management, LLC, we have chosen to structure our practice such that every client who chooses to engage the services of Baron Wealth Management will be working directly with one of us. We would rather spend our time working directly with clients than supervising support staff. While restricting our practice to a lean structure undoubtedly limits our income, it provides us with maximum job satisfaction and we would like to think it ensures the best possible level of service to our clients.
