Forming deep personal relationships – discovering clients' why and helping them execute it. It's not about the money, but about how the money can be a conduit for the greater good; for clients’ families, their community and their employees.

Tami Sytsma

Owner, SWS + Senior Wealth Advisor, RJFS

No vision is too grand and no detail is too small for Tami Sytsma as she serves some of West Michigan’s most prominent organizations and most successful business leaders. She’s been providing comprehensive financial solutions for clients with complex needs for over 22 years. Tami opened Sytsma Wealth Strategies in 2015 because she knew the people she represented required a level of support and guidance they couldn’t find at other firms. She fosters long-term relationships built on a foundation of trust and takes the time to understand each client’s unique situation.

Tami believes that her company’s success is about more than managing investments. Sytsma Wealth Strategies was created to be a positive partner in the community. Tami and her employees volunteer their time with organizations that support both the Uptown Neighborhood and the greater good for all of West Michigan. Tami knows that seeing our community continue to grow requires everyone to play a role.

Tami’s career has garnered her numerous awards, citations and accolades, but she is probably most proud of her family and two young children. She finds joy in watching them grow and planning for their future, just as she does for her clients and their families. Tami enjoys an active lifestyle highlighted by travel, exercise, cooking, gardening and anything else that celebrates new experiences and spending time with those you love.

What got you interested in this field

I was a 22 year old graduate looking for a job that would provide me a career. I didn’t know that this is what I wanted to do, but I walk thru a door that was opened and it turns our that sometimes life leads you where you should be. I love leading clients to their financial aspirations.
