Exchange Capital Management is an independent fee-only SEC Registered Investment Advisor located in Ann Arbor's historic Kerrytown district.
Founded in 1989, we specialize in financial planning and implementing customized client solutions using individual stock and bond positions. Importantly, we believe investment success is grounded in a thorough understanding of your specific goals and the consistent application of a proven investment discipline.
Unlike many advisors, we adhere to a strict fiduciary standard of care...and we back that commitment in writing:
1. We will always put your interests first ahead of our own, that of our firm, and our employees. As defined by federal law, we will act as a fiduciary.
2. When selecting investments, we will act as your agent; seeking the best investments at the best prices at all times.
3. While neither Exchange Capital nor any other firm can promise superior investment returns, we will provide impartial advice and act with skill, care, diligence and the exercise of sound judgment in the management of your investment account(s).
4. We will provide full and fair disclosure of all important facts, including a clear description of the advisory fee we charge, as well as any fees we may pay to others on your behalf.
5. We will not receive any fee or commission from any product or service we utilize on your behalf with regard to your investment account(s).
6. We will fully disclose and fairly manage, in your favor, any unavoidable conflicts of interest.

Financial Planning for Individuals
Exchange Capital Management begins every new relationship by developing a comprehensive financial plan. Before finalizing an individually prepared financial plan (which is accompanied by a written investment policy statement) and implementing a specific investment strategy, a senior adviser will discuss the suitability of various alternatives within the context of your (i) liquid net worth, (ii) current annual earnings, (iii) savings rate, (iv) periodic distribution or liquidity needs, (v) planned gifts to family members or charitable institutions, (vi) significant cash flows from sale of a business, inheritance, real estate or other purchases, (vii) executive stock options and restricted stock holdings, (viii) current and deferred tax obligations, and (ix) your estate plan.
Exchange Capital Management, Inc. employs fundamental security and credit analysis to construct diversified investment portfolios using individual stock and bond positions. This approach to security selection and portfolio management is based upon an appraisal of the worth of an entire company considering objective fundamental factors such as revenue growth, asset turnover, pre-tax margins, free cash flow, return on capital, tax rates, debt‐to‐equity ratios, and subjective variables including Exchange Capital Management, Inc.s estimate of growth and dividend paying ability as well as our opinion of management. Charts are used for historical reference and to indicate trends, but are not relied upon as predictors of price appreciation or depreciation. Exchange Capital Management, Inc. uses as its principal source of information materials prepared by companies, such as annual reports, and documents filed with regulatory agencies, and SEC Form 10‐Ks, 10‐Qs, or 8‐Ks. In addition, Exchange Capital Management, Inc.s portfolio managers subscribes to or have access to a wide range of statistical services and financial publications, including independent external research prepared by others. Exchange Capital Management, Inc. also seeks to have contact with the management of the companies in which it invests through participation in conference calls.
