Who We Are

We’re a family-run practice providing family-first advice – since 1997.

As your finances get increasingly complex over time, what’s needed is a way to navigate the questions you face, and all the possible answers, in light of your personal priorities.

To this end, we guide our clients through a straightforward, focused process that we’ve designed based on our own experience – as a family and as financial professionals. We have the ability to present complex ideas in an easy-to-understand manner, so that we may provide clients with clear perspective on the long-term and a solid understanding of where they stand today.

“We are a boutique family practice, dedicating the knowledge and insight of more than 22 years of helping our clients enhance their wealth and protect what matters.” – Michael Washer, Managing Partner

Mike Washer

Managing Partner

Mike Washer founded what is now ICS Financial in 1997, and eventually brought on his wife Melissa and son Regan to form a family-focused practice. 

A Personal Producing General Agent and Registered Representative, Mike began his career in the early 90s working for a small boutique employee benefits agency. Over the years, he established a large concentration of self-employed clients, which has led him to develop financial experience in a number of areas, from business succession planning to investment management strategies. He partnered with Ameritas in 2012 and has been recognized as part of the firm’s Leaders Conference each year since. His focus in recent years has developed into a comprehensive and goal-based approach, which enables clients and their families to bring all the various parts of their wealth together into a clear strategy. 

Mike’s knowledge and professional experience has also made him a valuable resource in his community, in which the Washer family is very active. Mike and Melissa also have a daughter Lacey, a Registered Nurse, and the family often spends time together enjoying the outdoors.
