Michael Anliker, CPA, CFP®
Michael Anliker is the owner and Financial Advisor for Anliker Financial Management. During his 20+ years in the financial services industry, Michael has brought his knowledge of tax laws and investments together in a way that helps clients build and preserve wealth. In doing so, he’s enjoyed watching clients succeed from the financial strategies they’ve implemented together over the years.
Michael wears many hats when working with clients, often serving as a teacher, counselor - even a wise friend at times. That’s why he values long-term relationships built on trust, hard work and compassion. Whether clients have been underserved by previous advisors or never worked with one at all, his goal is to grow their financial confidence through sound planning.
Michael’s interest in the industry started from a young age when his grandfather gave him a copy of Standard and Poor’s Stock Guide. He became fascinated with the stock listings in the local newspaper and made his first investment in stocks at age 11. He went on to earn his B.S. in Accounting from the University of Akron and earned his CPA and CFP® designations.
Michael is a retired officer of the Army National Guard and completed a tour in Afghanistan. In his free time, he enjoys building computers from PCs to Servers, playing chess and staying physically active. He is currently a member of the Virginia Society of CPAs and the Virginia National Guard Association.
