Few companies can claim that they change lives on a daily basis. Southfield-based company Assets International is one of those select few. Proud to celebrate ten years of prosperity and growth since its inception in 2001, Assets International's sole mission is to unite individuals and companies with cash assets that they are unaware of.
Neal Duchin founded Assets International after his wife was contacted by an attorney notifying her that a former patient of hers had left her a substantial amount of money in appreciation of her nursing care. Duchin was shocked by the length of time this particular attorney had searched for his wife and wondered how many other missing beneficiaries exist who cannot be located to receive an inheritance.
Over the course of the last decade, Assets International has been responsible in connecting over 1,000 individuals and companies with the assets that were left to them, amounting to more than 25 million dollars. Assets International's reach extends almost as far as their passion for what they do. They have done business and located beneficiaries throughout the U.S., Scotland, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Argentina, Israel, Antigua and Pakistan, among other places.
While the numbers are extraordinary, President Michael Zwick is even happier with the footprint that Assets International has left on its clients' lives.
"When we hear that people are able to enhance their quality of life through the work we do, that's really what energizes our company," Zwick said. However, the footprint of Assets International reaches even further than their clients. The company's staff have participated in community service work with The Rainbow Connection, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Forgotten Harvest and Cornerstone Schools.
Assets International has flourished the last ten years largely due to the staff it's assembled and the relationships it's forged and boasts an impressive client roster including the American Heart Association, JP Morgan Chase, the Sony Corporation, the University of Michigan and Verizon Wireless.
If the past is any sign of the future, Assets International is positioned for growth for years to come. "There's value in reflecting back on what we've done, but we're more excited to look forward to what lies ahead," Zwick said. "Each day, we believe in what we do and work with tenacity and confidence to assist as many people as possible."
