About Us

About Us

Serving Ohio and Michigan

Cap Averill II and Associates has always been known by its reputation for having satisfied clients. For more than 60 years clients from all walks of life, have depended on the Averill name for help with their IRAs and 401ks. We also offer Tax Sheltered annuities (403B’s), for doctors, educators, police and government employees, and other retirement savings vehicles. Be it tax qualified or after tax money, we offer what we consider to be the best in class products.

We pride ourselves on having quality products, which focus on best performance, shortest terms, highest ratings, and largest amount of crediting options available.

Offering Independent Advice

Cap Averill II and Associates is completely independent, meaning that we are not controlled by any insurance company or broker dealer relationship.

By design, we pay for our own retirement benefits, and health insurance benefits, and we own the building which serves as our home office. By not allowing our salespeople to receive these types of benefits from third parties, we believe that we reduce our conflict of interests. As owner, I do not sell products. And we always have and we always will be pleased to discuss our compensation, and exactly how we use it to serve you and your family to the best of our ability.

Retirement Planning

We focus on helping our clients reach their retirement savings goals.

Our focus on protecting hard earned savings is a priority. Our benchmark is recommending products which we would use for our own family’s retirement planning.

Public Service

Mentoring is important to those who share the award winning credentials we have, so we make giving back a big part of what we do. Some of our public service initiatives include:

  • Supporting and providing insights to small business owners.
  • Authoring and producing values driven financial documentaries which are nationally distributed on Public Television through the National Educational Television Association, and provided to schools and organizations across the country.
  • Supporting special needs organizations and efforts to promote goodwill between people of different backgrounds, races and religions.


The best part about dealing with us is our fantastic staff. Our staff members have been with us longer than many local firms have been in business. Although semi-retired now, Cap Averill Sr. began his career in financial back in the 1960’s.

Life Insurance

We are Here For You!

At Cap Averill II and Associates some people find it difficult to talk about money. Our specialty is taking a human approach to our business,… to put you at ease.

All meetings with us are at no cost regardless of how many times you want to meet. At your direction, we are happy to work with your attorney, accountant, family member or anyone upon whom you depend for feedback and advice. We consider ourselves part of your team.

Have you been offered products which you did not understand at seminars, or through your insurance agent? If you have questions on which annuities we recommend and why, we are happy to provide that information to you, at no cost or obligation.

Some annuities provide the potential for interest to be credited based in part on the performance of specific indices, such as the S&P500* for example, without the risk of loss due to market downturns and fluctuation. Having been involved in product design in Indexed annuities with major companies, among other things, Cap knows how these types of products work, what we feel are the best ones and why, and how we can make them work for you.

We are also known for practicing what we preach. The entire Averill family uses the exact same products which Cap Averill II & Associates recommends to our clients, and not everyone can say that.

Multiple Purpose Planning / Comprehensive Planning

In many cases, our established clients initially came to us seeking better performance with money they wanted to have at lower risk. Then, over time they continued to gravitate to us because we competed well based on results.

Healthy competition on results is good for a portfolio.

We work well with customers who want to be highly involved in the process, as well as those customers who take a hands off approach, but want to be sure they have professionals they can trust.
