Michael Hammen CFP®

Owner and Founder


I am the owner and founder of Vision Financial Services LLC located in West Des Moines, Iowa. In 2010, after spending most of my career in corporate America, I became an independent financial advisor and launched my own firm. Today, we serve both individuals and small businesses with a wide array of services, including financial planning, investments, accounting, and income taxes. In my experience, many firms focus on the “business,” but not on the “individual.” Everyone’s situation is unique, and no single solution works for each person. Our goal is to be a resource for information and ideas and help guide clients through the maize we sometimes encounter when dealing with finances.

My wife Jeri and I are both lifelong Iowa residents and are the parents of four children. Both are actively involved in their community and civic organizations.
