VIMA’s main goal is to work together with our clients, making sure they understand our wealth management process in order to achieve their lifestyle goals. We pay special attention to clients unique needs. This is accomplished through efficient personalized services.
On an annual basis VIMA will make charitable donations. A percentage of all revenues generated each year is donated to HypeAthletics. This wonderful local charity assists keeping children involved in extra-curricular activities when their families face economic hardship. Take a look at their website: http://hypeathletics.org
We also support the Detroit Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation. This Foundation provides the resources needed to conduct life–saving pediatric research, advocate for children and their safety, and help educate future generations of health care professionals.

VIMA supports local school students in the metro area. Michael Vissotski is a motivational speaker at Warren Mott and Hazel Park high schools. He motivates and inspires the students to follow their passions and push beyond their limits. Michael’s speeches provide encouragement the students use for the attainment of their goals and the belief that anything is possible with the proper mindset. If you know of a high school that might be interested please contact us, the speaking engagements are complimentary.
In the current fast-paced world, it’s easy to ignore the harmful consequences resulting from the rapid industry growth. Good intentions are often forgotten and become second place next to turning a profit.
Four years ago, VIMA considered the possibility of impact investing, backing profitable companies trying to produce social and environmental good. Impact investing also allows investors to continue earning a profit while supporting companies that use environmentally sustainable technology, show a high level of employee satisfaction or carry out disease research. Companies with ethical controversies or a litigious history will be avoided. By avoiding companies involved in questionable industries, impact investing is focused on encouraging positive outcomes.
Our advisors realize that in order to increase financial success, investors should select not only funds that do well, but funds that have a neutral impact as well. Investors should not assume that just because a fund calls itself “sustainable” or “socially responsible,” does it mean that it’s true.
With current politics becoming more complex and the political processes becoming less able to deal with many issues like climate change and income inequality, investors now have an opportunity to encourage positive outcomes through their investment selection.
