LUKE STROM, ChFC®, CRPC®
Check the background of this investment professional on FINRA’s BrokerCheck.
Instead of pursuing law school after his undergraduate degree in political science, Luke Strom took a job in the insurance industry. He became fascinated by all the methods to help clients plan for their financial security. In his most recent role as an in-house financial advisor, Luke served over 2,000 employees internally; meanwhile, he was building his own financial planning business.
The opportunity to join Sterling is perfect. With a knack for problem solving, Luke enjoys taking data and transforming it into relatable action steps for financial planning. He has an easy manner with people and a true interest in finding just the right pieces for each plan.
After achieving his Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor (CRPC®) designation, Luke achieved his Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®) credential to focus on advanced financial planning.

Luke Strom is a born-and-raised Minnesotan from Minneapolis, and he plans to keep it that way. He and his wife love to be outdoors fishing, canoeing and camping, plus playing with their two cockapoos, Tui and Koa. Their dogs were named after favorite memories on a trip to New Zealand. He likes to be on the move, just like Amelia in our office.
Preparing for parenthood is next on Luke’s agenda, although he knows you can never really prepare. His experience as a soccer coach may help, since he always learns as much from young people as he can teach them. Plus, nothing gets past him! After coaching several high school boys’ soccer teams, he is now an assistant coach for the Gustavus Adolphus College men’s soccer team.
It’s not hard to get Luke talking, so ask about his long list of travel dreams. He is already saving to eventually explore every continent with his family.
“Besides traveling, we want to be true Minnesota residents and own a dream lake house. That way, we can also vacation at home.”
