Hi, I’m Mike Schupak, co-founder of Astra Wealth Partners.

Financial planning and investing can be both intimidating and overwhelming. I want to be there to help you understand your financial picture, plan for the future and to help you avoid making costly mistakes that you may regret down the road.

I am passionate about what I do and truly care about the clients I work with. I’m patient, detail orientated and enjoy teaching others. Being left brain dominant, I have a love for probability and numbers. I enjoy reading the latest white papers on investing and appreciate the variety that comes with each financial planning engagement.

Outside of work, I love to spend time with my wife. We are avid skiers and she has spread her travel bug to me over time. I strive to always eat healthy but burgers and pizza occasionally get in the way. I’m a big NY Jets fan, otherwise a casual sports fan. I’m always up for a game of chess, basketball or a round of golf.

We are proud to be a fee-only, independently-owned firm that acts as a fiduciary for our clients at all times. This means that we are not compensated through commissions paid for selling financial products. We are not incentivized to make decisions regarding investment product recommendations that may conflict with the best interests of our clients. We are not bound to a specific set of financial products and are able to consider a wide variety of solutions for our clients.

AWP was co-founded by Kevin Peacock and Michael Schupak. After growing their respective firms separately over a number of years, they realized that they could provide even more value to clients by joining forces. Their clients would benefit from their combined knowledge and past experience.
