Having grown up in and around his family’s local business, Strouse's Clothing, Adam knew early on that owning his own business was his ultimate goal. Investing in the stock market intrigued Adam, and at the young age of twelve, Adam purchased his first share of stock using his lawn mowing money. Soon after, he was helping with the bookkeeping for Strouse's, ultimately becoming Controller, and learning as much about investing and finances as he could.
Investing and finance continued to interest Adam throughout his college years, and he graduated from Indiana University with his Bachelor of Science in Finance in 1993. He received his Masters in Business Administration from the University of Southern Indiana in 1996. Adam's other credentials include his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification as of April, 2005. He also has his Series 7 and Series 65 registrations held through LPL Financial and is an Investment Advisory Representative with Private Advisor Group as well.
Adam is actively involved in the community. He currently serves as a board member of the Dunigan YMCA. In the past he has also served as a board member of various other community, non-profit and church organizations.
On a volunteer basis, Adam has contributed to several articles published in the Your Money section of the Sunday edition of the Indianapolis Star newspaper. He continues to contribute to the column, writing on day-to-day issues with money, including life insurance, financial planning, and credit history.
Adam has been in the investment and finance industry for over 15 years. In December of 2005, he opened his own firm, Strouse Wealth Advisors. Opening his own firm allowed him to provide a wider base of services for his existing and new clients. Adam currently provides a broad horizon of services for his clients, including, but not limited to:
