Meet Steve Drost, CFASubmitted by Affiance Financial on June 19th, 2017
Meet the newest member of the Affiance team – Steve Drost.
Steve grew up in Spring Lake Park before moving to Decorah, Iowa, to finish his high school education. From there, he attended the University of Northern Iowa, where he double majored in finance and real estate. After graduation, Steve made his way back to the Twin Cities, where he worked for the Department of the Treasury before joining a two-person financial planning firm.
The main benefit of starting out with such a small firm was the vast array of experience Steve gained by performing so many support roles at once – Paraplanner, Advisor 2, Customer Support Specialist, and occasional Handyman. But before long, Steve was ready for the challenges that come with working for a larger firm.
Steve brings to Affiance an infectious energy, and a much-appreciated willingness to jump into projects in need of an extra set of hands. He looks forward to the experience he will gain working with Affiance’s more-seasoned team members, as well as its diverse group of clients. He recently became a CFA charterholder and will be sitting for the CFP exam in November.
Steve lives in Fridley with his fiancée Marissa. Middle school acquaintances, the two reconnected after he returned to the Twin Cities. Their wedding is planned for May, 2018. Steve is the cook in his household, his preferred method being the precision immersion Sous-vide technique. He also enjoys playing and watching pretty much every sport, working on house projects, and spending time with his family and friends.
