President Susan Elser, CFP®

In addition to overseeing the day-to-day operations of investment management and client service, Susan maintains existing relationships with her clients and provides counsel to our planners when needed. She listens to clients’ goals, concerns, and desires, helps them determine their priorities, and then implements strategies to reach their goals.

Susan has been a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ since 2001. Since founding Elser Financial Planning in 2007, Susan has found many ways to give back to her community, including serving on boards of the Indianapolis Children’s Museum and the Museum’s Planned Giving Council, the Estate Planning Council of Indianapolis, and has served as a Chairperson for the Midwest Region of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors and on the Professional Advisor Leadership Council of CICF.

Married for 32 years, Susan and her husband Brian live in Indianapolis, and have two adult sons.
