AMI was founded in 1995 as a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) by current Owner and President, Michael Axel . Mike saw an unmet need  for completely independent investment advice backed by thorough and rigorous research. The qualities of independence and in-depth research still remain the pillars which AMI stands on to this day and has led to AMI continually being ranked as a leading financial advisory firm by Bloomberg Wealth Manager Magazine. As of June 30, 2015, AMI manages over $450 million dollars of assets for clients in 19 states.
