Dicran B. Haidostian, CFP®
President and Founder
Dicran has been involved in professional financial consulting for over 28 years. After receiving his undergraduate degree at University of Michigan, he earned his MBA at the University of Virginia. Commercial lending at NBD Bank introduced him to the world of entrepreneurs – individuals and professionals that work every day to balance personal needs with the demands of owning a business or managing a profession. Watching his father, an MD with his own medical practice, strive to achieve this same balance gave him an early appreciation of the vital need for a valued financial advisor on a business and a personal level.
Dicran is a technician in the financial services industry, applying the creative use of financial products and services to help individuals and corporations which aim to meet a diverse array of needs. With eight years at a pension consulting firm, and over 27 years of corporate benefit consulting experience, he is qualified to integrate strategies to help address financial issues facing individuals and small businesses.
Over the years, Dicran has earned the designations of CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER TM , Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU), and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC). He is a member of the Society of Financial Services Professionals, Financial Planning Association; Financial & Estate Planning Council of Metro Detroit, Chairman’s Club of LPL Financial (top 5% of LPL Financial advisors nationwide based on prior year-end production) and has served on the boards of the Birmingham Athletic Club, Manoogian Manor and Society of Financial Service Professionals.
Dicran, and his wife Aralynn, are active in Detroit’s Armenian community, and live in Bloomfield Hills. They have two daughters: Allison completed her MBA from the Ross Graduate School of Business at the University of Michigan and lives in Chicago. Allison left an international consulting firm to gain classroom teaching experience and has now resumed her consulting career with a focus on education reform. Lisa received her J.D. (cum laude) from the University of Michigan Law School and is an Associate with McDermott Will & Emery in Chicago. Dicran enjoys live theater, music and squash.
