Currently, Alex teaches at Oakland University in the same CFP® program from which he graduated.

Ryan Kus graduated with high honors from Rutgers University in New Jersey in 2003. Following graduation, Ryan took a sales position with the insurance company American Income. There he found immediate success, and after one year, took a management role where he organized and then led a team of ten salespeople. Ryan was off to a great start, but he felt a desire to help people in a deeper way. In 2005, Ryan was recruited by MetLife’s second most productive office to work as a financial advisor. While there, Ryan built an independent company that focused on working with business health insurance and employee benefits. This really took off, and by 2008 his team was working with over 135 companies. That same year, Ryan married his wife Rachel, sold his employee benefit business, and moved to Plymouth, Michigan.  He continued his financial planning practice in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

In 2010, Ryan was approached by M&O Marketing, a national marketing organization located in Southfield, Michigan, and was offered an executive position with the company. He was responsible for building a new division with a focus on distributing financial products to financial advisors around the country. During this time he wrote the book “Got MELC?” and wrote articles for “Life Insurance Selling,” a national trade journal.

Ryan separated from M&O Marketing in 2013, to help create Horizon Wealth Management, the predecessor to Horizon Advisers.  He uses his past experience to assist his clients in working toward achieving their goals, and utilizes his leadership skills to continue to expand the Horizon team. In 2015, Ryan helped put together an acquisition of a CPA firm, and then in 2016, Ryan helped create Horizon Advisers and merge two other tax practices.

PERSONAL LIFE

I currently reside in Plymouth, MI with my wife Rachel and daughter Charley. I moved around a fair amount as a kid. I have spent parts of my life living in Michigan, New Hampshire, and New Jersey.

My favorite sports are basketball, football, and tennis.  One of my passions in life is traveling, and while I have been all over the world, I have many stops to go.

I value hard work. My mother and father were both Marines. We grew up with little and in our home, hard work was a way of life. I still embrace this today, and will always appreciate this quality.

I have had to overcome great obstacles in my life and have learned from each one. My greatest being the death of my sister and mother when I was 17 and 19.

This approach ensures a timely, efficient, cost-effective savings to both parties.  

Mark recently merged with a partner and is going to be expanding his practice again. His father Terry Williams, who originally founded Wisley & Williams – the current firm Mark is managing, still works with him to this day.

Our Story

Beginning as Horizon Wealth Management, our firm was formed in 2012. We realized that being independent was the only way we could avoid conflicts and truly serve our clients’ best interests. Our team quickly attracted industry talent with our integrity and client-focused approach. We achieved our goal of becoming a comprehensive financial planning firm.

Although we built a team and delivered to our clients as promised, we realized that there was a powerful synergy with accountants. Understanding that no financial decision is sound until all tax implications are considered, we merged with a local CPA firm to complete our circle of comprehensive financial services — offering our clients everything they need to make smart decisions for their futures, as well the futures of their families and businesses.

What Matters Most to Us

Empowering our clients to make informed financial decisions, we firmly believe that if you don’t know where you are, it’s nearly impossible to know where you are going. Through pre-scheduled periodic review meetings, we will make sure we stay actively involved in your financial life, giving you the confidence you need to live your life to the fullest.  

As a financial advisory firm, we strive to always act in a fiduciary capacity with clients. To help ensure we uphold this responsibility, there are three core principles that serve as the bedrock of what we do:

Trust

Investment management requires experience, knowledge, and trust. We believe that the foundation of our relationship starts and ends here. We promise to listen to your needs and deliver sound guidance through all economic situations.

Integrity

We are professionals with strong moral character. We actively practice this in business and in our community. We strive to always be fair, honest and transparent with everyone we serve.

Respect

We treat our clients like family — never imposing any unfair judgment and always providing you with advice and guidance that best suits your needs.

Our Financial Services

Helping You Achieve Order

With collaboration at the forefront of our firm, we believe in a team approach when it comes to the many facets of financial planning.

Our advisors focus on a breadth of financial disciplines, enabling us to perfect our individual strategies and create a holistic plan that maximizes opportunity and minimizes inadequacies.

Our Comprehensive Financial Planning Services


Tax Planning Metro Detroit Horizon Advisers

Tax Planning

By proactively looking at your tax situation throughout the year and forecasting into the future, we can help you make better decisions about your taxes today.

We’ll review your tax documents and history to help make sure you only pay what's required. And because tax codes are constantly changing, we’ll review your financial plan regularly to help make sure your after-tax return is optimized at all times.

Asset Management Metro Detroit Horizon Advisers

Asset Management

Many people’s investments lack a clearly defined purpose. While their portfolios may be well-diversified and generating acceptable returns, there is no sound financial plan and strategy in place to guide their investment decisions.

With your financial plan as the foundation of our investment strategy, we’ll help ensure every dollar you invest gets you closer to achieving your goals. 

Estate Planning Metro Detroit Horizon Advisers

Estate Planning

How do you want to be remembered? Estate planning is more than just making sure your assets go to the right people at the right time and that a probate court judge is not determining who inherits your life’s work.

After establishing your goals and objectives, we’ll review a variety of factors to determine potential long-term care expenses, outdated and underperforming insurance policies and tax-efficient strategies to distribute your assets to your chosen beneficiaries.

Risk Management Metro Detroit Horizon Advisers

Risk Management

Whether you need life insurance, long-term care, health or disability insurance, we’ll evaluate your current policies and implement new coverage based on the evolving needs of both you and your family.

Our experience and knowledge in various types of insurance will help provide financial confidence knowing your assets and health are protected from the unexpected.

Income Planning Metro Detroit Horizon Advisers

Income Planning

Using propriety software, we'll help you understand your income sources (such as Social Security and pension) in an easy-to-understand format. We will then create different buckets for your distributions that align with your time horizon until withdrawal, providing you with clarity on how your investments should be allocated.

With this income plan, you’ll finally be able to look forward to your retirement. We'll help you take out the emotion that comes with investing over a long horizon.

Bridging the Gap

Between your employees’ needs and your business’s resources.

As financial planners and business owners, we can help your company stay ahead of increased scrutiny of retirement plans’ fiduciary requirements.

Being independent allows us to tailor your 401(k) plan to your organization’s size and needs — with a focus on keeping investment costs low — making sure the things you outline benefit the right people.

In order to accomplish this, we conduct a thorough analysis and benchmarking of your current 401(k) retirement plan, including:

Improving Your Bottom Line

Through our commitment to integrity, accuracy and specialty.

As a holistic financial planning firm, we’ve merged our advisers with tax experts, enabling us to deliver even more comprehensive advice — recommendations that not only suit your unique financial needs, but that also counteract any negative tax implications.

Whether you’re an individual or a business, potential tax consequences are often unseen by the untrained eye. That’s why we make sure we retain only the best and the brightest staff — implementing time-tested strategies to reduce your expenses, as well as providing ongoing education so you understand the rhyme and reason behind every decision.
